One night me, Jeff Hughes, Greg Telles and Tim were out on the town drinkin the hell out of some beers when Tim had the bright idea to buy some acid from this girl he knew.
SIDE NOTE #2
Stoked to hear Nigel and Tim finally got something going. I always wondered why they never had a band before. It's cool shit. I'll break out some adjectives.
Frenetic and nervous hardcore with both feet firmly planted in LVHC. They're not trying to be trailblazers in terms of experimenting with the genre. It's pretty much where the style left off back in the late 80's which is cool. At least they know what they're good at. It's Las Vegas Hardcore with better production. Spastic. Speedy. Offbeat. Rough around the edges but there's some unexpected shit happening here in some of the songs. I want to say it's a more mature style of hardcore but it's more like the opposite. Regressive hardcore? So many hardcore bands who later put out "mature" records lost their balls in the translation this recording stays true to aggression. Some of it is so formula hardcore I almost hear it as pop hooks because that's how I'd expect hardcore to sound but when they get to experimenting they go into some cool shit that stays intense. There's a stab at melody in some songs which I find a little lukewarm but overall it's a great find for those of us who haven't seen Nige or Tim in a few years. I don't know who the guitar player is.
If I can dedicate this post to anyone it's Tom Bert. I hope we can be friends again? I think? Also dedicated to all the people from all over the world currently dying in Afghanistan because no one seems to be dedicating shit to those people anymore.
