about

The old drummer in the band moved into my parents street when I was 15 or so. I showed him some Metallica records and he showed me the Pennywise "live at the key club" record. That and skateboarding really got me into punk music and changed my life *cough*cliche *cough*

lyrics

15 and sitting in my room
I'm all alone and feeling bored
I started skating with the
Kid from down the street a couple doors
Showed him Metallica and
He gave me "Live at the Key Club"
Landed my first kickflip in the
Car park out behind Janalli pub

And when I'm feeling melancholy
Punk rock and popping ollies
Skateboards and power chords will
Help me make it through
In my head and I am tripping
'till I go three sixty flipping
Drink a couple of beers and then I
Play a song or 2

Can't beat the feeling you get
Bombing hills the wind blowing through my hair
Or a Sunday arvo in the
Garage making music my friends
But I'm not Murtaugh and I'll
Never be too old for this shit
And I'm still dropping in
I'm playing shows and
Wrecking in the pit

And when I'm feeling melancholy
Punk rock and popping ollies
Skateboards and power chords will
Help me make it through
In my head and I am tripping
'till I go 360 flipping
Drink a couple of beers and then I
Play a song or 2

about

That's The Last Straw Sydney, Australia

Playing the simplest of 3 chord punk, what That's the Last Straw lack in technical riffage, they make up for with an enthusiasm for having a good time playing music.

Playing with some of Australia's finest bands over their on again/off again time as a band, they have even gotten to support Guttermouth. Nobody is sure how that happened
