Favorite Song of the Week: The Washdown - Right Foot

I've never been one to gladly follow rules and regulations. I have problems being told I "should" do something. I have a slight issue with authority. I don't like people telling me what I can and cannot do.

I cook, I don't bake -- too many rigid specifics in baking recipes.
I roll in to work at 8:07 every morning, not 8:00 like the handbook says.
I never match my bra and panties simply because they are supposed to match.

I damn The Man.

Oh sure, mismatched undergarments may not seem like much to anyone else, but it works for me. I believe everyone needs to damn The Man some way, every day. That's the beauty of punk culture.

Rebel a little, live on the outside, embrace the DIY ethic, be passionate about your politics, support the little guy. You'd be surprised the kind of company you'll find yourself in.

This brings me to my favorite song this week.

Listen: The Washdown - Right Foot mp3

I usually start off my morning with a little punk. Turn on my monitor (yes, 7 mins late), get a cup of coffee and treat my earbuds to some loud punk music as I peruse my calendar for the day.

One of my favorite morning flavors is danceable punk. Great energy, but still a little too rough, a little too loud. That's why I dig The Washdown. A 5 piece band from Tampa, The Wasdown plays music similar to Hot Hot Heat and The Hives, but not as flashy or radio-friendly.

Right Foot is found on Say Yes To Everything and can be found at Lookout Records. According to their myspace site "Washdown is no more". Too bad - these guys must've put on a great show.
