This Is Hardcore 2013

t seems that I make an annual trek now to This Is Hardcore for at least one of the days. A few of my friends went to see Tragedy the night before, but I had to wrap up grading for a summer class so I could not go. I wanted to clear out grading so I had the weekend to myself so I could see Judge. I thought I left for the show early enough to catch World War IV, but some traffic miscues and finding parking meant I only caught their last two or three songs. They sounded good…

Stick Together-Beware-Born Annoying-Secret Police @ Brick VFW 6-25-12

I needed to go back to the shore while on vacation to see my parents, so it was great I could time this visit with a Monday night show in Brick. My pal Bob Shedd booked this one at the old Brick VFW, one of seemingly numerous VFW halls in Brick, where bands like Breakdown, The Casualties, Righteous Jams, and many others have played over the years. After leaving the shore in an absolute downpour, I got up to Brick and got lost because my GPS crapped out. However, I started recognizing some landmarks and made it to the show…

Soul Swallower-Self Titled

Soul Swallower S/T EP Collapse Records Holy shit! Over the summer I kept hearing about a project members of, amongst others, Mind Eraser had going called Soul Swallower. A friend who saw them live described them as “Mind Eraser, only better.” With these very high expectations I knew I had to hear this. Thankfully our friend Bob Shedd put this out on Collapse. Soul Swallower are similar to Mind Eraser but have a bit more of an influence from bands like Integrity, Citizens Arrest, and No Comment. To the layman, I’m sure both bands will sound similar, but there is…

Little Rascals-Wig Out @ Asa’s

Little Rascals Wig Out At Asa’s 7” Collapse Records After being blown away by these guys twice live this summer, I had to check out their record. The shore’s own Bob Shedd put this one out so you know it will be good. The Little Rascals play NYHC style with heavy mosh parts. Did I mention how heavy the mosh parts are? I am not really much of a mosher anymore but both times I saw these guys I had to hit the dance floor. This is one of the best records to come out of the shore in a…

Parade Brigade #3

Parade Brigade #3 was thrown together in about 72 hours and it shows. John and I were driving to school on a Wednesday morning and I suddenly just had to have it out for a show that Friday evening. Both interviews in this issue (Fit For Abuse + Shark Attack) were done sometime that week and most of it was haphazardly laid out the night before at about 3am by me. I think John did not even get his page to me until right before we left for the copy place. We just totally sucked at this at that time.…
