I should feel old, like the subject of Lagwagon’s “Falling Apart.” The whole flashback sequence that led to this post was triggered by my pal/former housemate Brent announcing he has a second child on the way — and Brent has always been one of my YOUNGER friends. Yeah, I should feel old. Lagwagon probably should, too, considering the flashback took me to a photo shoot for grid some 10 years ago where Jon dropped them and other bands from the Warped Tour inside a dollhouse using Photoshop magic. (I wish I could find the shot of Angelo Moore dressed up as a maid…Jon?) But Lagwagon’s still making music and I’m still writing about it. So, pass the multi-vitamins and fire up the heating pad…here’s to another 10 years of punk rock and baby makin’!

  1. Oh man. Actually, it wasn't so much photoshop as it was old school cut n paste. I'll see if I can dig up the shot of Angelo. It's one of the best ever.

  2. YES!!! One the few decent punk bands left. This is an awesome album, it's very raw and one of my favorites for 2006. Nice post! p.s i remember that issue of Grid, I wish I still had a copy of it.

  3. I am listening the whole time to the song heartbreaking.., the video made me really cry, gotta get the album, it´s awesome they have sth. sooooo good out.
