Start Something 7" Now in Stock

Hey, we've got copies of the debut 7" from local punksters Start Something. The Hard Times slab was put out by Mammoth Cave Records and features front and back sleeve art by the great Marc Bell!

Start Something is made up of three lifelong friends (Ryan Master, Todd Dunster and Mike Deane) who have been playing in bands together, off and on, for nearly two decades. Growing up together in the country and then moving elsewhere, this Guelph-based trio reconnected at the beginning of 2013 with the goal of making music that would be as simple and fun as playing in a high school punk band. Inspired by the aggression, intensity and melody of classics like Husker Du and Mission of Burma, and contemporaries like Royal Headache, Start Something are making no-nonsense pop post punk, stripping out anything superfluous and focusing on jamming econo. Though the melodies and structures can recall lighter fare, the lyrical focus is serious: investigating problems and issues that inspire and disgust you, and trying to personally figure out how life changes and what, if anything, it means.
