Welcome everyone to This Was The Scene, the podcast that takes a look back at the late 90s / early 2000 Nj Jersey Punk scene, I am your host, Mike Doyle. There were a lot of punk/emo/hardcore bands that came out of the Jersey scene. I didn’t realize how many there actually were until Joe Pulito showed up in the North Jersey Pop Punk facebook group and said, hi everyone, I’ve archived all of it. I mean, I don’t think he has 100% of the bands but I Think he has like 99%. This is purely a passion project for Joe because he’s not getting paid and this takes sooo much fucking time to do. Heath Midtown said it best in his interview, episode 003, when he stated that Joe is doing the Lord's work.
