This should be a good primer on what "emo" is. http://www.fourfa.com/ . Though I believe that music should be focused on by a particular artist and not as a subset of a genre. And so, if you appreciate the music then who really cares what one person classifies it as over the next?
He said something like this a while ago:
I'm proud to be found influential in the whole post-punk scene, but I take no responsibility for mc-Emo as it generaly manifests today
(can't find the exact quote, but yeah...it was something like that.)
He simply rocks.
Hey guys, if you like Onelinedrawing, check out my music. I'm a big fan of Jonah Matranga's songwriting, and it comes out in my lyrics. I've got a new song up, called I Still Believe, so check it out at www.myspace.com/sometimescrazyworks. Thanks!
