Hey so I talk about region rock and how the south had/has one of the best punk rock scenes in the world.... cos it does, and I wouldn't live here still if I didn't think that... but I also haven't been everywhere yet so I honestly can't say that with 100% authority. But my friend Buddha put up a website that's testament to the great history of punk rock in the south. Checkitout:

www.regionrockrecords.com

It's being updated rather frequently with great classic hard-to-find southern punk rock 7"s.

I highly recommend; Queer Wulf, Forced Vengence, Hello ****ty People and Jack Palance Band

Wow, that's sweet. Looks like I'll be busy for a while.

EDIT: Oh, haha. I'm guessing you also post on the PIX forum.

It really depends on what you define as "south". You see I live in the state where old people go to die, and all there is here is a bunch of kids who grew up in suburbia hell and now they wanna be "punks" cause mommy buys them everything they ever wanted, oh and there's skin heads and homeless people. But yeah my whole point is Florida is south and there is little to no punk scene here.

Miami used to have one of the biggest punk scenes in the country. There's great punk scenes in Orlando, Pensacola, Gainesville and all over Florida. I haven't been to St. Augustine yet but i hear it's kickin'.

I live in Alabama and love it, we've got a great punk scene here.

Do you post on the PIX boards?
I'm not a punk rock hero and you're no fairy princess, just 'cause you're beautiful and I've got a stupid haircut.

I just registered a few days ago, my user name is Prettier Than Bowie. Do you post there?

It seems like you guys have a pretty awesome scene down there. I actually never expected the south to have a punk scene until I joined UG and saw you post whyvern. You definitely proved me wrong. I might order a few 7"s when I have the money. The south would be a pretty awesome place to live except I wouldn't be able to snowboard .
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

St.Augustine? Seriously? My parents own a house there. (real estate used to be way, way, way cheaper) If there's a good scene there I may have some interest in going for the first time in years.

I was wasted and pissed off this morning, yeah Florida does have a pretty good punk scene despite the old people and skinheads
