1995 : I was 12 years old and I listened to Nirvana all day long like all of my friends at school. With the release of Green Day “Dookie” and Offspring “Smash” I started to listen to punk rock like millions of other kids and later in the year I bought records of Bad Religion, Pennywise and NOFX, but these were probably the only bands I knew at that time. My friend Marco who is 2 years older than me, gave me a mix tape so I could know other bands. The mix tape had songs from a lot of cool bands like Face To Face, Rancid, Social Distortion, Circle Jerks, Lagwagon, Descendents and there was this band called Ten Foot Pole that had two songs called “Broken Bubble” and “Old Man”. I fell in love with these songs. I bought the record “Rev”, I loved it and TFP became one of my favourite band. Two years later I heard that a new Ten Foot Pole record was coming out and that Scott was no more the singer of the band blablabla (you all know the story). I didn’t knew what to expect since I liked Scott voice so much and I was prepared for being let down, but I bought “Unleashed” anyway a few weeks after it’s release. I was amazed ! I even liked it better than “Rev”. Sure maybe Dennis doesn’t sing as well as Scott, but I don’t know, I liked his voice, and the songs were just so good.
