I deny it.


I like Don't Be a Dick and punk music but I don't like neither Robyn or the so called 'beach pop'.. Am I allowed to be a "Swimmers" fan?

It's the first two album rule, it applies to real punks. Real punks only like the first two albums of a band, and anything after that is sellout :P

Why did they change the name? Did Emily quit the band? #outoftheloop


Dolores Umbridge rumbled them rehearsing in the Room Of Requirement.

They becae ultra-pacifist and decided to get rid of the 'army' bit in their name. The guy who left thought swimming was too violent to fishes, so he left.

Emily's Army is far, far better name. Not Swimmers.

They'll still be called Emily's Army at Soundwave. Joey said the "official" change in terms of booking isn't until March.
