Farside - Keep My Soul Awake - Crisis Records 1990















Farside reminds me of Bad Religion in some ways on this their first 7" . I really liked this one back in the day and it still holds a certain amount of charm for me. Somehow I became pen pals with the singer Popeye for a bit. I remember he sent me a cassette of some cool demo and acoustic tracks that I need to dig out from my tape box. He also invited me to a show at The Anthrax in CT, but I chicken out and never went. Anyway, Farside signed to revelation records and went on to release a bunch of full lengths over the next 10 years or so...so if you like this ep please head over to revelation and purchase a full length or two which I am sure are still in print.

Thanks for the Farside! This totally appeals to the 'dorky emo chick circa 1994' in me.

See you tomorrow night!

Dave,

I haven't heard this in about 15 years. My penis keeps me from being a dorky emo chick, but I'm definitely chest tapping along.

Thanks for the post!
