If you can’t tell from the above picture, Harrison Bergeron was once a band from the Lehigh Valley, PA area whose members went on to form Boy Problems, Street Smart Cyclist and Storm the Bastille. They played an intense brand of mathy screamo music, somewhat comparable to Orchid or Joshua Fit for Battle at moments. They only put out 6 songs, all of which are amazing. It must be noted that there isn’t a proper version floating around of their Dead Bergeron compilation of sorts, some songs are low quality (56-96kbps) and others are of somewhat higher quality (160kbps). As soon as a proper copy is out there and available for purchase, it will be uploaded with a link for purchasing as well. They are one of the most intense and raw bands that made this kind of music and the low quality of this compilation shouldn’t stop you from checking them out.
Boy Problems was a band from Philadelphia/Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. They only put out 6 songs, which is a bummer. One was a Tour EP and the other song was from a 4-way-split with a 3 other bands. However, all of their material is perfect. The lyrics are great for curing whatever sadness you’re going through. The noodly and mathy music over the shrill screaming is perfect. These 6 songs are absolutely amazing, with so many good moments. I mean, it starts off with a clip from Superbad where Seth and Evan tell eachother how they’re best friends and how they love eachother. There are just so many perfect moments from what they released, for lack of better words is amazing and emotional. It might take a bit of getting used to, but this band and what they did was amazing. I’m so grateful that I got to see them live at least once, even if they were drunk.

Boys & Sex
Boys & Sex starts where Boy Problems left off. It’s still great music, but it’s a little more punk-ish than the noodly styling of Boy Problems. I didn’t like it at first, but it’s undoubtedly just as good as Boy Problems. The lyrics are as good as ever, the music packs a punch and is really solid.
