Springfield Sucks

Fascinating Riverfront Times piece about the hardcore punk scene in Springfield. There's a page of MP3 samples, too. Lastly, a blog about Ozark punk rock.

Finding out about this historical scene is somewhat shocking, considering Springfield is the headquarters of both The Assembly of God and the Baptist Bible Fellowship International. But then I think about it and remember that punk rock is supposed to be all about disenfranchised youths from the suburbs. What's more dienfranshising than belonging to an AoG church?

Well played, Springfield, well played.
