@Gabz so many good times seeing those guys play around Newcastle. Back when they were touring all the time, I was really into skateboarding, and whenever Millencolin were in town, there was a crew of us that used to take them around all the decent, hidden, skate spots around town.

@matpacker Oh cool! I’ve never had the opportunity to see them live or anything. I mean back in PR these guys weren’t that big, so.

@Gabz circa ‘97-98 we had so many awesome punk bands coming through town, Millencolin, NoFX, Bad Religion, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, No Fun At All, and a whole load of others.

Then slowly but surely our local council killed live music by allowing residential/apartment developments to go up right next door to music venues, and we all know what comes next....noise complaints, drunken youth complaints, and then next thing you know, there’s no music scene and a huge part of the cities identity is gone. Same happened in Adelaide, it had a thriving metal scene, which is effectively non-existent now.

@Gabz much of their Hoss album is still on fairly high rotation, specially when I’m driving. Love that album!
