Hi everyone. (:

I just saw that we have an "introduce yourself" thread! o_O
Okay, here we go. I'm Silver, 22, and I'm from Punkrock City Berlin!
I LOVE everything that deals with music. I like to go to concerts, play guitar (but not professional). I like PUNKROCK, bodyart (tattoos, piercings...), beer, PUNKROCK, skateboarding, oh yes and PUNKROCK! Very Happy
I've started to listen with 12, 13 or so to old british punk bands: Clash, Adicts, Ramones...but also cool american punkrock like social distortion. Then I came to hardcorepunk: (unseen, casualties, black flag) and even listened to some oi! bands from uk like cock sparrer and cockney rejects, also some ska. But basically I'm open for every kind of music, even emocore! d:
But when I discovered this forum I've read about so many bands that I listen now. HWM, This town needs guns, Bruce Springsteen, Against Me!, I found these pre-gaslight anthem bands like crt, tcm or surrogate mckenzie and i really enjoy this old school songs.
But wait! There is one more thing that came when I started to play acoustic guitar: The Singer/Songwriter and acoustic stuff (William Fitzsimmons, Joshua Radin, Bon Iver).
BUT THEN I had the august '08 issue of my fanzine in the mail. Guess who was on the cover... Very Happy
Yes. GASLIGHT ANTHEM! And the '59 sound record had such a good review so I bought the album and I immediately fell in love with it. I know that this music will accompany me my whole life. I'm already so exited to see them here this november. It will be my first Gaslight concert. I don't know...it's like that their songs are already like an addiction. (:
Okay, i think it's enough for now. It's 3 a.m., I just came from a fantastic Anti-Flag concert and i'm a bit tired now. But if you wanna know something feel free to ask. (:
Cheers.

Do you mean Kerrang!, which showed them on the August 08 issue or another magazine?

I listened to a lot of Laurel Aitken and The Specials. 2 Tone music is great for dancing. Very Happy
But I also like the reggae stuff by The Clash. I even listen to these new ska-punk bands like mighty mighty bosstones or distemper from russia.

Haha. No. The fanzine is called "plastic bomb" and it's just a small german independent zine. Their covers are mostly self-drawn but they always have album regards on it and '59 sound album was on top of all. But it's kinda extraordinary 'cause it's a pure "deutschpunk" zine that deals with local bands and the local scene. I think they even loved the record made an exception for it. Very Happy

Super! Endlich kann ich auf Deutsch schreiben. xD Danke für die Grüße. Ich schick dir gleich mal welche ins schöne Österrreich zurück. (:
TGA sind der absolute Oberhammer. Hab echt nie soviel für eine Band empfunden, die mich auch mit ihren Songs so dermaßen bewegt. Sie sind die Band der Stunde! Zum berlin Konzert sind's noch 2 Wochen, aber ich dreh jetzt schon durch und nerv schon alle damit. Vorfreude pur! : D
Wenn irgendwie möglich sein sollte, werd ich versuchen Fotos und alles zu machen, obwohl's schwer sein wird in der columbia-halle.
Aber wenigstens möchte ich einen "Benny-Bear-Hug" bekommen. xD
Hab mittlerweile drei Piercings. Lippe rechts und links und Septum. Mit Tattoos fang ich warscheinlich erst im Winter/Frühjahr an. Aber auf jeden Fall dann Old School Tattoos. Skulls, waves, sinking ships, sailor tattoo motive halt. Und das ein oder andere Gaslight Zitat wird auch dabei sein. Wink
Ich hoffe, die Leute hier sind nicht zu angepisst, dass ich mal ein wenig auf Deutsch geschrieben hab, aber wir sind ja ein internationales Forum. d:
Wohoo. I love this place!

I moved to berlin this may, so I can't tell you about all good clubs but if you like Rock 'n' Roll and Punkrock you should visit the "Wild at heart" in Kreuzberg. Nice atmo, cool people and almost every night with great punk bands. (Mostly local, but sometimes international like nothington or born to lose...) They also play psychobilly, rockabilly and very old punk. It's my favourite bar.
Another great place is the Magnet Club, also Kreuzberg. They also have rockbars at some days (and the last time I was there i went to the dj with a song-wish and then he played "The Patient Ferris Wheel" : D
Oh yes, and you should go there if you wanna meet some nice girls... Wink

@micwatson: Are you on that Gaslight Anthem concert at november the 5th, too?

OK. I have the cover disc from that issue (#64) which had 'Old White Lincoln' on it as track 2. I thought you meant there was also a pic of them on the cover, which there isn't, except if that's Brian in disguise.

Brian's a superhero in his free time, and that's his costume. don't believe me? then why would he be learning how to fly? (think of learning to fly as superman, not of learning how to fly a plane)

haha, ich glaub net dass es uns die andren krumm nehmen, alles andere wird ja e auf englisch besprochen.
ich war noch nie in berlin, es wäre aber ein baldiges reiseziel von mir. bei uns österreich hat berlin so eine art kultstatus erreicht, jeder will ma dorthin und alle die schon dart waren sind begeistert.

also ich seh tga jetzt zum 3. mal und bin noch immer total aufgeregt. das fängt mit der verlautbarung der gig-termins an, wird stärker mit dem erhalt des tickets und dann mit jedem weiteren tag.


also kombination von septum und snakebites find ich echt geil^^
hab selber auch ein septum machen lassen (in stockholm und meine elterns habens mir sogar unwissentlich gezahlt^^) und als nächstes kommen zwei labrets auf der linken seite. da freu ich mich schon drauf.

tattoos kann ich mir leider nicht machen lassen weil ich eine schwere hautkrankheit habe, ich halte mich daher lieber an die piercings^^

I think it was my fault for that misunderstanding. A plastic bomb issue contains of two parts: The fanzine with the articles, photos, etc... and a black/white catalogue with record lists for ordering. On that catalogue cover are album recommendations and there was also a small pic of the '59 sound record, no picture of the band or sth. like that.I forgot to mention.

Lol. I like this explaination. It makes so much more sense. But his costume looks awful. He really needs a better one. : D

@ Grazer:
Ja komm nach Berlin. (: Es ist echt schön hier. Ich mag dieses big city life total. Ich persönlich war nur ein einziges Mal in Österreich, während der EM. Hat mir gereicht. xD Na Spaß, ich fand's schön bei euch.
Ach ja, die Vorfreude.^^ Die is nicht zu toppen. So geht's mir auch immer bei nem neuen Album, dass ich unbedingt haben möchte. (: Bei American Slang war's ähnlich. Hab den Postboten echt jeden Tag aufgelauert.^^
Ich find' auch, dass es keine bessere Piercing Kombination gibt^^. Das einzig blöde ist nur, dass hier mittlerweile jeder Zweite so rumrennt. :/ Aber ich hab auch schon ein paar Leute in einem Gaslight Anthem Shirt rumrennen sehen. Da ging's mir dann wieder besser. <:
