With a decade-long history, MxPx now rank among neo-punk’s elder statesmen. And, of course, they are still in their 20s. It’s a handful for guitarist Tom Wisniewski to grasp. “It’s weird, because people give us that whole thing like we’re staples of the scene now, and I’m like two years older than most of these bands that are coming up,” Wisniewski tells Chris Parker of the Cleveland Scene. “We’ve been doing it for so long that we are kind of elder statesmen, just by experience, but not by age. I still look up to Bad Religion, and they’re all older than me, and they’ve been doing it 10 years longer than us. I mean, I could be doing it Rolling Stones-style. They got started in their 20s, so I’ve got a head start on them.” The full story at clevescene.com has since been removed.
