Sometimes life seems just fine and you're doing a bunch of stuff and then you get an email from an old friend which makes you miss them like no tomorrow. Jamie Drier sent me this list of things that should be on the t-shirts of children with parents who are fans of hardcore. He ended the email with, "That's all I could come up with on my walk home from work."
Here's a video from 1999 of Jamie playing in Planes Mistaken at the Fireside Bowl in Chicago. PMFS was originally from Peoria, IL. At one time I had so many friends from Peoria, I would nearly say that when somebody asked me where I was from.
*Jesus, I just listened to "Teaching You the Fear" five times. That song absolutely fucking rips.
