Schoolyard Heroes

Sometimes, fierce entities come in unexpected packages. Right out of high school, Seattle, Washington’s Schoolyard Heroes – brash dealers of angular riffs with thematic bents that’d make Issac Asimov proud – launched their Priest construction-meets-Misfits lyricis attack on prog punk at all-ages venues throughout the ever-vibrant Pacific Northwest scene in 2003 before releasing that year’s The Funeral Sciences full-length on The Control Group label.

There are a lot of things you can say about the horror punk band Schoolyard heroes.  Accused of spreading “devil’s music”—I’d say they are called horror punk for a reason rather than being accused of satanic- they definitely have..interesting lyrics. Poetic in a gruesome manner.  (You’re shaking like a first time skin flick/my soul goes to the highest bidder)  Not everyone’s cup of tea. But one of my favourite bands. And yes, I am aware of my erratic taste in music.

SHE: “If I’m not mistaken, I’ve torn your heart out three times now.”
HE: “It’s true, my dear. You tore me up like a boy made of paper.”
TOGETHER: “It was the right thing to do at the time!”
