What He Says

Punk rock was never my bag but when you peel it back, especially in its earliest forms when barely anyone knew what it was, you get glimpses of these kids  exploding with raw ideas and you wind up with something like the Minutemen–one of the greatest American bands. Or, you stumble across two-minute snippets of a guy like Ian MacKaye, and his clarity of thought in what he  says.

  1. Excellent, and timely. I’m struggling a bit with my writing and what MacKaye says is applicable to all forms of creative expression. What I take out of this is that I need to stop thinking so much, forget making it fit, and just go where the page/music takes me. Thanks for this, Pete.
