about

This is my first compilation called "Lauren's Awesome Mix Vol. 1." The title is an homage to the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The compilation itself will be available for "name your price" download through Bandcamp. All proceeds will be donated to SPCA of Brevard in Titusville, FL. The money will be used to to shelter and find homes for unwanted animals. Through this I hope to help people discover lesser know bands and put something positive out into the world. I would totally appreciate if you guys donated something and/or shared this I've purchased some downloads for everyone to use. Hopefully the self-promotion isn't annoying. Happy Thanksgiving!

"Like a lot of thirty-somethings, I cut my punk rock teeth in the early 1990s (pre-Dookie, thank you very much). Lived it, loved it, ate, drank and slept it. But something happened a decade or so later. Maybe it was moving from Boston to the dial-up modem that is New Hampshire, maybe it was starting my professional life, maybe it was just not really being inspired by anything new anymore. Fast-forward almost a decade and I stumbled across a then-little website called Dying Scene. I went out on a limb and started writing for the site almost four years ago, and immediately felt lost in the wilderness. Bands I’d never heard of…labels I’d never heard of…genres I’d never of (I still don’t know what orgcore is). But shortly thereafter, I met Lauren, and she’s been my punk rock spirit guide ever since. I’m continually inspired by the passion she has for this scene and for the fire that punk rock music gives to her, but that she gives to the punk rock community. Saying that she lives, loves, eats, drinks and sleeps this scene is understating the matter to say the absolute least. Hell, just look at the tracklist on this compilation; at last count, we were up to around six dozen bands, and I’m sure she’s got enough music that she wants you to hear to enable a Volume II and Volume III before Christmas. So give yourself a few hours and check this compilation out. Not only will buying it be helping a great cause, it’ll be helping yourself."

Track Name: Allout Helter - Assume the Imposition
You know the drill!
Assume the imposition
Embrace free market
And abandon your ideals

They say we're lazy and coddled, unpatriotic and addle-brained
Sitting in judgement atop family fortunes
And their ill-gotten gains

If you can't relate at all, then you're a complacent son of a bitch
And if you'd rather watch it all, then you deserve everything that you get
This isn't a warning, we've moved beyond the time for games
We don't want your pity but we're begging for your change

Bogus paradigm
Force-fed from the beginning
No wonder we're capsizing
The water is filling our lungs

Getting hard to breathe, harder to believe that cynicism reigns
Who will take responsibility
For patching what remains?

And if you can't relate at all, then you're a complacent son of a bitch
If you'd rather watch it fall, then you deserve everything that you get
This isn't a warning, we've moved beyond the time for games
Fuck your pity and we don't need your change
Track Name: The Capitalist Kids - Body Snatchers
Body-snatchers took your skin
ripped you out and they moved in
now I don’t know what to do
it still looks like you
but it’s not you
you know that I have tried my best
to exorcise them from your flesh
but in spite of all that I have done
I fear they might have won
’cause it’s not you
they got you
and wiped your memory
they must have caught you
and shot you
with their mind-erasing beam
right on the spot
you forgot you only want to be with me
this is the only possible explanation
Track Name: Wringer - 15 Minutes In Denton
Bully for you, it's bullshit to me
Buried in baggage and busted dreams
There's no guarantees, no charity
Everything's faulty and nothing's free
So cancel all my appointments
And give all my possessions away
I wanna go on an endless holiday
Fair-weather friends, armchair critics
Killjoys and cowards: you won't be missed
Safety, routine, ignorant bliss
I'd trade it all for a night like this
Track Name: Dearly Divided - '89
Dearly divided,
Here’s a new declaration
The people on the pavement are all walking backward
Simple spellbound souls
Content pretending they can go home again

If you want a message for the ones I've left behind
Tell 'em that I left my heart in ‘89

What now that all the leaves have fallen?
Wanting nothing more than to be gone and forgotten
I'm seething just to stop the bleeding
I don't pretend to know who's right but I'm still breathing

Taxing tragedy
Sometimes friends and apathy
Adults who act like children and the games they play
Have brought me to this ledge
I’m standing inches from the edge
I won't fall

I've learned how
to cash in all my disillusionment
Let your collapse be my entertainment
Track Name: The Harlem Downtrotters - Will Never Say the Day
Will never save the day

lyrics
We stare up at this giant structure
From a million miles away
The dust is thin, but the truth is thick in the "better days"
Forecast from bright to bleak
Bad backs we sit and think
And watch the tears roll off our cheeks

Whoa oh you can't afford to take it away
Whoa oh just keep it running
Whoa oh move on and admit that a small part of you died today

A map remains on this faded carpet
Where everything had it's place
The walls are stained with age and missing picture frames
Fiction thick with missing pages
We purge what ifs and maybes
What could've beens come out our faces

Whoa oh you can't afford to take it away
Whoa oh just keep it running
Whoa oh move on and admit that a small part of you died today
Track Name: The Gentlemen Thieves - Your Beauty Is Not Forgotten
Written by Ken Taylor

A tattoo added on his back
Body art makes her go numb
Body art makes her go numb
It makes him groan, these angry bones
As it fills his pride and takes him even higher
He hopes that this could be for real

But wait, now where did you go?
I can’t see you

Seasons change and feelings fall
And your beauty is not forgotton
Yeah, I wish you well
What do I owe you
You don’t own me

She has golden locks of hair
Shining through the morning sun
Shining through the morning sun

I’d like to mean it when I have to
I’d think to show it when I know you
Darkness brings me fear
As we go on we start to argue
I think I’ll escape, but I found you
her heart’s covered in tears

But wait, now where did you go?
I can’t see you

Seasons change and feelings fall
And your beauty is not forgotton
Yeah, I wish you well
What do I owe you
You don’t own me
You don’t own me

Hey
Now where did you go?
Hey
I can’t see you
Hey
Even through two blackened eyes

But wait, now where did you go?
I can’t see you even through two blackened eyes
Wait, now wait
I can’t see you!

Seasons change and feelings fall
And your beauty is not forgotton
Yeah, I wish you well
What do I owe you
You don’t own me
Seasons change and feelings fall
And your beauty is not forgotton
Yeah, I wish you well
What do I owe you
You don’t own me
Track Name: Mike TV - Myoclonic Jerk
Declaration of a broken heart,
And I knew it was a hiccup from the start.
Imagination's going off the chart
Coz I’m never coming back for your love.

Started back in '92, I was full of attitude
Girls kept on breaking my heart, kept on breaking my..
From Sandra to Toni, to Billy, Leone, I was a tart
But I wanted something true, and I really needed you
Our worlds apart.

And I'm flying into sleep
Falling into terrors
Close my eyes and kill the sheep

Fell in love, it’s with my Myoclonic jerk
Holds me in my arms
All night I, I'm freaking out about this guy
Now it's time to let go!

Got me jumping out my skin!

Fell asleep alone again, Romeo where are you then?
You kept on waking me up, kept on waking me…
A spasm, a tremor, a dreamt up dilemma, you're not enough
Shudder at the thought of you, walking ‘cross my grave, it’s true
My! Oh, clone us!

Got me jumping out my skin!
A contraction of the limbs
Paralysis and fear sets in.
Track Name: Rational Anthem - Apartment Complex
apartment walls breathe in and out
i stare at paper and talk out loud
in hopes to find some clarity of mind
get out of my head and walk outside
attempt to regain some sense of pride
though i think what ill find will be the same

im making the grades and clocking in
with my foot in my mouth i dont make sense
waiting for summer heat to take me away
put on coffee and ignore calls
finding new ways to sit and stall
ill waste every goddamn minute of this day

you can take it all back and keep the change
i got little left to lose and nothing left to gain

im a thousand different people depending on the place
a procrastinating delusion that were keeping up the pace
im the never fleeting thought of how i dont know when to quit
a pessimistic version of a half ass accomplishment
Track Name: Old Towns - Leaving Songs
It's just four more years 'til we leave this place
until then, we'll drink down at Louis' place
we'll finish our beer and with one great cheer
I can't wait to get out of here

I spend more time worrying about the weather
than where we're going or how we'll get there
it's always too cold, never too late
I'm in the right place

It's just four more years 'til we leave this place
until then, we'll drink down at Louis' place
we'll finish our beer and with one great cheer
I can't wait to get out of here

there's truth in these words, I just don't speak them sober
please excuse me, I didn't think this over
I want to feel alright; we'll get there pint after pint

It's just four more years 'til we leave this place
until then, we'll drink down at Louis' place
we'll finish our beer and with one great cheer
I can't wait to get out of here
