Nitro 15857

Released on August 24, 2004


theSTART’s debut album for Nitro Records, Initiation, contains 12 shots of noise-pop, blissed-out fatalism and flailing rock abandon. Singer Echo, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Jamie Miller, bassist Erick Sanger and drummer Billy Brimblecom Jr. are a punk band first and foremost. Don't get that confused with being a "punk-rock" band. Here, let Aimee explain....

"When I was a little tyke, I always thought that being punk was being different from anybody else and making sure your personal integrity remained intact," says Echo. "That's not like the costume party we call ‘punk,' now. That year we were on Warped, we were more punk than anyone else on that tour. A lot of those bands looked interchangeable, and their music sounded the same way. I like to think we rose above the black t-shirted masses."

One of my most anticipated cd's of the year and it did not dissapoint. The lyrics are nicely written and the music compliments them well. I would recomend this cd to anyone in the market to buy a new cd.
