CHARLIE=WELL,WE ARE PUNKS STILL,WE DON´T HAVE REASONS TO CHANGE OUR ATTITUDE OR OUR MUSIC STYLE.THIS IS WHAT WE ARE.THIS IS WHAT WE DO.IF WE CHANGE OUR MUSIC THEN WE WILL DON´T BE ANTI-CIMEX,I´M RIGHT?...I CAN´T UNDERSTAND HOW A BAND LIKE DISCHARGE FOR EXAMPLE,KEEP THE SAME NAME WHEN THEY CHANGED THEIR MUSIC STYLE,AND THIS IS NOT HELPING THEY A LOT,I THINK...IN OTHER WAY,CLIFF IS MAKING NEW MUSICS LIKE FIRST EP´S AND HE DON´T HAVE ANY REASON TO CHANGE,EVEN SO SINCE MORE THAN 10 YEARS INTO PUNK MUSIC.
