Mixtape: Tin Foil Chewing Gum


Punk was always an expression of outsiderdom, but even within the confines of the genre there existed (and still exists) a thread that’s twitching on a wavelength that only the ardent insomniacs and agoraphobics fully appreciate. Cropping up among the Midwest’s endless sprawl of boredom and on the coasts couched in between the shut-ins and the art school dropouts, there existed a strain of caffeinated, bulging-veined punk that swiped at No Wave, sniffed at synth-punk and shirked New Wave’s more inviting corridors. Tin Foil Chewing Gum is for the freaks in the back row. It’s for the punks chewing glass and looking for another diner to share in the delight of the pain and the cathartic rush of blood.
