    I can't agree more. They should have never rerecorded keasbey so that way we would have somewhere in the between plus one more new album.
    wait a minute my tv doesn't work

    I got a question for the punks. Its a gay question, just give me shit about it later.

    Ive been putting patches onto my jacket for a while, and it was getting pretty dirty, so I decided to wash it. And when I took it out of the drier, all my patches were all frayed and the seams had torn out. So I was wondering, do I wash it in cold water instead? Or hang it to dry? I just dont wanna have to resew all my patches again. It took way too long the first time.

    Be a man! Don't wash it!

    Are they stitched on or ironed on?

    idk maybe like a gentle cold wash or do the old fashioned way by hand. Also let it air dry. Drape it over a chair or something

    should have either spot washed by hand or not washed it.
    personally I wouldn't have washed it. Punks are supposed to be dirty.
    did you hand stitch the patches on? if so, it frayed because hand stitching is generally weak because you only use one thread. use a sewing machine or hand stitch it a second time so the stitches interlock.
    If you don't want to do that then stitch a border around the patch before you sew it on. Thats not as strong as using a sewing machine but its better than a weak single thread stitch.

    Talking about sewing and using sewing machines isn't gay. its part of punk culture. DIY.

    I dont think the problem was that I ran it through the washer, I think it was because all my patches shrank from their first wash. I think I might just cold wash it and hang it to dry next time. Or maybe just like get into the bathtub with it still on. Whatever.

    I think I might start a camo vest soon. How do you guys make sure your backpatches are on straight?

    i stenciled the back of mine. just put the patch on with safety pins to make sure its straight then sew the edges down and when your done, take out the pins.

    nefore i learned how to sew i used to put patches on wth studs haha i'd just lift as many stud belts as i could and pull all the studs off. now i have like 5000 pyramids and nothing to do with em

    Or, you could just stop worrying about being fashionable and buy records instead of patches, go to shows, start a zine, book a show, or something as equally as productive.

    so you can't be punk if you don't wear a patched up jacket or if you sign a contract to allow yourself to eat. Every band progresses, obviously their sound changes, and I'm sure, if you were in a band getting paid $0 you would rather change your sound a bit to make more cashmoney. When you think about it a bands head should be thinking, fuck the fans they only like us cas their friends like us, a record company offers mad moola to do what we normally do with a little bit of tweaking Lol.

    I have no idea what you people are talking about. But I dont see why people have to like prove their punk-ness before they talk about sewing patches. I listen to the music. Way before I got into the fashion. I also like hip hops style, I also like Psychobilly and rudeboy fashion. I listen to the music, Im into the scene, so Ill dress that way if I want to. I dont. Because I dont need a genre to tell me who I am. But if I want to, I dont have to prove it to anyone. If you want to point your finger at a poser, go find a Greenday fanatic with studded bracelets or some shit.



    Whatever. It feels like Im constantly preaching on this thread. And ska-punk is the bomb.
