Gully Days – Wouldn’t Wanna Be You

Similar artists: Descendents, Bad Religion

Genre: Skate Punk, Surf Rock, Alternative Rock

Everything seems to take forever these days. If you want to live in the modern world, prepare to wait around for it. But not punk-rock. Maybe it’s because it lacks finesse. Perhaps it is because punk rockers simply don’t know how to smoothly integrate themselves into society. But punk rock songs, when they work, they do because they crash through your brain like someone driving a truck to a store window in order to rob the place blind. 

There’s something sensational about knowing that you can depend on these things. It’s an instant wake-up call, a sound of bravery & freedom, and a promise of better days. It’s nothing like bands playing for an hour just to tease fans with their biggest hit or movies that are built around a single impressive scene. No, punk rock delivers all that it has on the first try. 

Gully Days’ “Wouldn’t Wanna Be You” is a song that has no time whatsoever for beating around the bush. The band plays like they want to slap someone’s face. They’re angry but know that the best way to reach an audience is to give the thrills of powerful melodies combined with the rush of rocking out. It doesn’t take forever, and you wouldn’t dare doubt that it’s the truth. 


車震 Carquake – 廁所 Bathroom

Similar artists: Motörhead, Flipper

Genre: Punk, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Can robots play punk rock? And what do they think about stale, smelly rehearsal halls? Because if they do not care one way or another about the second question, we shouldn’t even bother asking the first. You see while punk-rock isn’t the greatest art form created by man, that would be erotic comic books, of course, it requires a particular kind of talent. 

That talent isn’t based exclusively on the ability to play an instrument or to tune it. That would be classical or jazz. And no matter the level of skill involved, it doesn’t inspire fans to either ask for your autograph unironically or to start a revolution. Punk-rock involves the talent of drawing enough attention to yourself that you can ask others to start a revolution for you. 

車震 Carquake think that smelly rehearsal spaces are just great and they bring the energy of this to the song “廁所 Bathroom.” This is punk-rock in love with the myth of punk-rock, with collecting old vinyl records and with celebrating live shows like they were the greatest thing to happen to a person’s life. Will computers be able to get all of that? No, and if they do, it’s bound to be boring.
