“Underground is easy.” Says Tim Sheridan, “It’s not about being cooler-than-thou or better than other people or even really about being in the know. It’s an unwavering standard. It’s a benchmark of a degree of quality and care that says what is going on is the pursuit of art before money.”
And thats the the real point of any underground scene. Its not to be superior to people who like pop music and lord over them with your opinions, its about having respect for one another and realising there is enough music to go around. For too long mass media has controlled the way in which we view the world – got to have the right clothes, the right car, the right shades, be with the right partner… difference is frowned upon and we have let them manipulate us. The underground IS difference, IS change. The underground is a group of friends finding new friends and sharing experiences, allowing more than whats force fed to us by corporations; open mindedness, and open heartedness.
