convert impressionable young kids into the next era's punk rockers,
this band would fit the bill perfectly as the show's mascots.""
"(The Taxpayers)…endorse smashing the system and
getting your kicks from it at the same time. It'll take hearts and
guitars to spark a revolution in this country-lord knows the other
side has the cynicism and guns markets pretty much cornered. So I'm
voting Taxpayers in '08." - Willamette

Useless State exists to promote artists within the Portland/NW area, so we rarely put out releases by those who are not. When USR releases something, a lot of planning has gone into it and is generally for someone directly within our community. However, we love to experience new creations and arts. If you’d like to send us something, please do. We enjoy building connections with others and sharing works.
Please allow up to 2 weeks to receive your order. Between day jobs, life, and traveling we can get a little tied up sometimes.
We know a lot of cool people doing a lot of cool things. Here are some links for starters.
Please contact us first! It's really expensive to ship overseas so let's chat.
Well, we're in transition between sites and styles right now. If you're looking for all of our old content... It's in the Florida Keys hanging out with J. Buff right now. The important part is that you can buy the new Taxpayers album while we get the rest of the site back in order. Whurd.
