remember when they first heard a certain song, and it just engulfed them, like
emotionally? while i was at a show, i was thumbing through some records, and
noticed a seven inch by this band midvale. the name was familiar because i remembered
across their incredible looking homepage, so i went with my gut and shelled
out my last three dollars on this band i had never heard. it was probably the
best, most worthwhile three dollars i ever spent...so i sort of forget about
the record until we get home. i figured i'd give it a listen to see what it
was like....you ever put on a record, and not listen? you know, sort of make
it background music? well that was my intention. now anyone remember the movie
"back to the future"?, when marty gets blown like through a wall? yeah, that
was me...everytime i listen to it, even to this moment, i get that same feeling.
every chord beat, lyric is just saturated with this incriedible emotion. "what
does this have to do with midvale as a band?" is what you're probably asking
yourself. midvale, to me at least, is more than just another dumb hardcore band.
if you sit down and read the lyrics and listen hard, you get more out of it
than just some self-serving emotional hardcore...with a surplus of bands today
that deal on a very personal level, which isn't bad at all, midvale sort of
takes that to a whole new level. this is a band that mixes personal lyrics with
a sort of political basis...i know a lot of people hear the word "political"
and get scared off, but the way they do it, they it's not a strictly unrelatable
concept. so the moral of the story is, write to ed walters records, get the
midvale record and then go to the band, to the source and get the big picture...
