I grew up a punk rocker in Southern California on the analog sounds of fast music from the seventies, eighties and nineties. Minor Threat was a favorite band of any “true” punk rocker, of course, and a couple of their songs have stuck with me. Their eponymous song, “Minor Threat,” featured the lyrics “Play it faster!” That was crucial to the punk rock “ethos.” Playing songs fast. I remember that iconic piece of advice vividly from my childhood.
A youthful adherence to fast music, however, did not prepare this millennial for the fast-paced lifestyle of the Digital Age. Today, I often think of another Minor Threat song, “Out Of Step.”
