Steve Newton has been sharing New York Capital Region music with me. I will post some of the best examples here.
CTOE describe themselves as metal. They’re chunky late-80s-early-90s metal: like back when the difference between hardcore and metal was hair length, and everyone mixed styles. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Wow, I just realized what CTOE means, and it’s not Common Topographic Operating Environment, nor is it Centro de Tropas de Operações Especiais. I can’t understand what those guys are singing about, but it’s certainly not obscure military acronyms.
Here’s more than one hour of music worth listening to:
Fort Smith Arkansas border street: On the OK side? This is tornado country! On the Arkansas side? Meh.
To be clear: the street was directly on the border. The north side? No shelters. The south side? Shelters.
Did Oklahoma offer tax breaks for building shelters? (Yes, but…) Do Arkansas people realize that they aren’t going into that hail just to get to an outdoor shelter? “We’ll just fire a few warning shots, shake our fists at the air, stay away from trailer parks, and lie in a ditch anyway.”
