Oh my god. We made it.
Who would have thought that we’d end up still going strong after almost five years and a hundred episodes?
Here’s a statement I wrote on my Facebook page. I thought it might be worth reprinting here.
“In honour of the huge changes going on at Profane Existence Official, Doomed Society’s 100th episode will be dedicated to 25 years of Profane Existence records! Eight years ago, I started writing reviews for PE magazine. Seven years ago, I started writing a column. Almost five years ago, Daniel Siskind kindly let me start hosting an hour-long podcast on the PE website, as part of the PE Radio family. If it wasn’t for Dan, Jeremy, and the PE family, there would be no Doomed Society. Who would have thought that Doomed Society would have become a mammoth of a two-hour show, let alone a DIY rekkid label of its own? So cheers to Dan Siskind, Ben Crew (Seth Goldberg), Jeremy Stinkbot, Chris Atu, and Josh Lent for everything you’ve done for punk and PE in the past, and for what’s coming up!
