Screeching Weasel // Anthem for a New Tomorrow • Around 1994, my friend pulled his dad’s guitar and drums out of the crawl space. We started a band and called ourselves “Punkaroo” (a play on a Canadian kids show character called Polkaroo). We wrote one song about a kid we didn’t like and recorded it on a cassette deck. We had no mic so I “sang” it directly into the mic on the stereo, and from there we decided we were ready to play our elementary school talent show. Our song of choice was “Inside Out” from Anthem for a New Tomorrow. Four kids that had just picked up instruments went on stage and tried to pull it off. There was no timing on the drums, a loose ability to play a power chord and a singer trying to pull off Ben Weasel style vocals. To top it off the bass player accidentally unplugged his bass for a portion of the song. Altogether it was an awesome experience and a great example of kids taking initiative to learn an instrument and play in a band. At the time, none of us knew that this was the beginning of a life long obsession with playing music. .
