"I mean, garage, it's even more depressing than whatever punk has become because punk can mean anything from Pennywise or baggy-pants Warped Tour garbage to the bands that are actually great. At least there's some variety. Garage is where punk rockers go to be even more close-minded.
Pretty quickly, I had more contempt for garage people than I did the rest of the world, so I wanted to do something to get away from it…somehow, it's so easy to get stuck in that rut." -- Jay Reatard, 2009. (bolding is mine) LINK
I'm deeply hurt you think Modest Mouse, the Archers, Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Neutral Milk Hotel, etc. are horrible. It will definitely keep me up tonight.
