The Eight Bucks Experiment
The Eight Bucks Experiment
We started this in the spring of 95. I don't know why we did it, or what the hell we were thinking. Bored, restless, or just stupid. Maybe all three, but really I think for me it was something else. Some people start bands because they want to have fun. I think I got into this because I hate mainstream music. Since I was a child I remember hating the radio. When the Experiment started punk rock had been mined out by the powers that be. Pop punk, and Ska (third, fifth, ninth, I don't know what wave), were just a flick of the radio away.

Punk rock had left the dirty clubs and basements, and found it's way to the mall. Yikes. I got into this as a big middle finger to how lame punk rock had become. Hack bands ripping off other bands trying to be the next big thing (and look Blink did it!). Originality, guts, and volume, had been replaced by a tidal wave of banality. Crybaby Emo bands, and sissy PC zines with bad writers and shity layouts, (hopefully Hit List will destroy them), made punk rock about as cutting edge as nerf.
You might not have heard of us but you probably have seen us either on tour (we've played about a 1000 shows in 46 states) or in the movie SLC Punk we played the band ECP. That's the story morning glory.
