Ensign-Rain On The Parade-Degenerics-Worthless-Reach The Sky-Purpose-Tears Of Frustration @ Manville NJ 9-20-98

This was yet another one of those shows where I worked all day and then raced to the show…I got there an hour late and it still had not even started! Tears Of Frustration got added to this show and opened it. I remember they covered a YDL song and the crowd was pretty awkward about it. The Degenerics, after a few seven inches, were starting to get really hot around this time. People were into them and they would always bust out a couple Bad Brains covers. No specific memories of Purpose, Worthless (another band that played a lot…

Breakdown-Tears Of Frustration-Grey Area-Voice Of Reason-Hopewell-Implode at Berkeley Heights NJ 8-14-99

This show did not get a big turnout, but Breakdown was playing so you knew we were going to be there! Rain On The Parade cancelled this show, but Tears Of Frustration got added. We got to the show as they began playing, but I do not remember much about their set. Grey Area were a band with members of Token Entry that played really melodic stuff. They had a record on Victory around this time. Breakdown was, of course, the big attraction at this show. They played their usual great set as they did a lot around this time.…

Kill Your Idols-Ten Yard Fight-Tears of Frustration-Blind Society at Stewart’s Root Beer in Manahawkin, NJ Summer 1999

This show was actually sort of imfamous because Ten Yard Fight apparently broke up a day or two before the show (and would play a final show at the idiotic “Edge Day” thing later in the year). Kill Your Idols also cancelled at the last minute, which I ended up fielding a bunch of calls about. I think my phone number got attached to the show contact info somehow? I showed up to the show after work and caught a few of Tears of Frustration’s songs. I remember they were playing a War Zone cover as I parked, which was…

Bane-Ten Yard Fight-Tears Of Frustration-Reach The Sky-Step Ahead @ Berkeley Heights 12-12-98

Who else played this show? A few others must have at least. In My Eyes were advertised, but I do not think they played? I went to this show with my friend Carson. Reach The Sky were kind of a hot, up and coming, band at the time. Carson got in a fight during Tears of Frustration after dancing pretty hard for them and a few people taking exception to him shoving someone. He was pretty bummed at how it all went down. Bane were not quite yet a huge band and looking back not many people really checked them…

Parade Brigade Fanzine #2: The Reviews

All three “staff members” did reviews for issue two. BW=Bill Wend, John=John Piorkowski, Ferret=Justin Bragg I got a ton of shit in the weeks before that In My Eyes record came out. I got it in the mail, listened a few times, and posted one morning on the Rev Board that I did not like it. I said it reminded me of Better Than A Thousand and was kind of shitty. I went to class and came back to this huge thread about what a fag/loser/pussy I was. LOL. Oh noes, I didn’t like your precious friend’s band and their…
