WOUNDS WINDS DOWN - SUMMER 2000 / by Dan Keech

After our tour, it was decided that Wounds would not continue on the DIY route. I was sad, but I didn’t know how to argue that driving around the country to rap for 15 crust punks would lead us to greener pastures. I couldn’t point to people who had achieved success doing it our way. The indie-rap hustle existed, but not the way it does now, and not in the world we knew.

It was deemed that albums, not shows, should be our new focus. It sounded okay, but it didn’t pan out like that. We went in five different directions, and things slowed to a crawl. We kept playing occasional shows, but the hope that we could really get in gear as a group started to fade.
