Here's the idea I came up with and how I came about it. . .

I got into punk rock around 1983 or so, and stopped listening to a lot of "new" stuff in the early 90s.  I have records and CDs from punk bands from the late 70s through the 80s, a little bit of 90s, but know nearly nothing about punk rock bands in this millenium. 

Therefore, my idea is that someone into "old punk" swaps mix tapes with someone into "new punk".  That was, us old folk get to hear new bands and younger folk get exposed to the roots of their favorite bands.

Oh, and to keep it crafty, maybe through in a homemade patch/sticker/magnet/t-shirt and spiff up the cassette case a bit.

I'm still in my first swap now, so I'm not planning on organizing this right away.  It's just an idea i'm kicking around.

Anyone dig it?

This sounds great.  I would be into being in this swap.  I'm kind of into both (what with my love of the Clash, Social D, Rancid, and Green Day), but I definately favor "newer" punk. I would love to hear what others are into especially with older bands.

I'd love this, but would "new punk" include pop-punk? I have nothing against pop-punk, some of it, like green day, is really good. Just wondering.

I like Green Day too, but I don't like a lot of the bands that got on MTV in the wake of Green Day. . . Blink 182, Good Charlotte, etc., so I'm not sure how to answer that.  (I guess I know more about current bands than I claim to!)  I was hoping for exposure to more underground bands and the sort of stuff I used to learn by reading Maximum Rock n Roll and Flipside every month.  In my original post I started to write something like this but thought I could come across as really elitist, and I didn't want to alienate anyone because I think this gives the Good Charlotte fans a chance to hear some music they may not have heard before, and get them to delve deeper.  (Here I go, now THAT sounds elitist -- why should I assume GC fans don't know "older" punk?)

Maybe have the swap be "the bands you love that no one else seems to have heard of"?!?  That seems to be the story of my life!!!!  The only "new" punk bands I own CDs of are from Japan. . . stuff like Kokeshi Doll, Titan Go Kings, Bleach are examples of the more "punk" stuff (or punk/noise as far as Kokeshi Doll is concerned).

Haha, ok I have the smae kind fo attitude. I like some fo the pop-punk bands, but with like most types of music that become popular, there's a lot of generic stuff out now too. That swap sounds like it'd be cool to participate in you know 'the bands you love, but no one else has ever heard of' but i don't think my music would be considered punk if I did it that way.

Oh man, this could get messy... (trying to classify what people feel is "punk" these days).

I'm into the good ol' boys like Angelic Upstarts, The Clash, etc.  This sounds like fun, but I hope nobody gets too defensive or evil about it...  Undecided

Maybe each swapper could identify a few of their fave bands, old and new, and the organizer could match people up according to their interests (ie no diehard Misfits fans with NOFX fans, y'know?).

I always love stuff like this - it's a great opportunity to discover new (or new to you) bands.
