    Sure, #2 in Olympia is good, but you're real achievement is making it to #14 in Tacoma! Congrats, guys! We don't even chart there... yet.

    Great stuff guys. You hear "old school" thrown around a lot by too many people who have no idea what it means. THIS is old school punk. Loving it.

A: It represents the dichotomy and duality we see in today's society. While one voice may be big, and have much to say, the one you hear the most from is the smallest representative, who holds the most money and assets.
