A guest post from Greg G. out of Somerset, WI
“In the early 80’s my older brother brought home a copy of The Buzzcock’s Singles Going Steady. Like other bands that filtered through my ears in my adolescence, this album grabbed me, shook me and kicked me across the street away from the preppies, the jocks, the kind of people that I couldn’t seem to understand. I was a BMXer, and a skater. Those things made sense to me. They were single pursuits. Skating and riding a bike gave me the freedom and outlet I needed to wrestle through the confusion of early teendom.
