Here is quite frankly one of the most complete True Colors collections i have ever seen.If you are active in European hardcore you probably have come across Mr.Nico and know this isn't the only amazing collection he has.Im not exactly sure what he's missing.He will feature in a future issue/post though.
you will need to click on this to appreciate the enormity of this collection.

Nico,i salute you.

So im still in a kind of flux in regards to moving so im a bit all over the place as regards post and doubly so on the progress of the zine.Its a pain in the ass.
Having said that i am writing up a piece on Atari for Mr.Andrew Kelly's zine Collected Short Boring.Im pretty stoked on that as anyone who reads this(what up three people?) knows im beyond into Atari and i feel it would be a nice partner to the write up/interview i have in the first issue of TTTDH.Should it ever make it to print that is.
Issue one will have that Atari piece,an interview with the amazing Phillipe from the mighty Remission,Famine,Salad Days records spotlight,shit on skating,Crowd Control and a write up on PA hardcore.That means Rain On The Parade,Atari and Rancor among other things.
If someone else had that that in a zine i would have a boner that wouldn't quit.
Just saying.

I've been listening to:

Too real.

Today at Demented Fest Famine played a set of older songs from when they used to be called Forging Friendships.Words cannot describe how amazing this was.

To me hearing those songs brings me back to 2005/2006 when i was first getting into hardcore seriously.Going to shows and becoming aware of stuff happening in the town i lived in and not just the bigger scenes in the US.It also invokes memories of meeting people who i now count among my best friends.

Thank you xGavx for letting me grab tunes off your computer on the brick of a creative zen you gave me.
Iano for being awesome,being in FDINS and helping me write songs.
Laura for introducing me to more hardcore than i can remember.Most notably Bane and Terror.People who say girls can't be into hardcore better step up so i can beat them down.
Glenn for being awesome and champion level diving during Terror in the Underworld.
I met a lot of amazing people around this time and i appreciate everything i learned.
This sappy pandering has me digressing.

You can listen to all there shit on their bandcamp

Lee,Cruise,Robbie,Iano and Jon,thanks fuckers.

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Ill also have a table of shit to sell at this.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

Stay Alert

Facebook is a hell of a thing.It enabled me to grab a quick interview with my good friend Kieth who plays in Alert.Whats shit about facebook is it erased the first part of the chat.Luckily not too much but i cant remember what i asked.It was probably shit.
Anyway this band rip and if you have even a passing interest in modern youth crew you should check them out.

chris:Whats the deal with you guys and being in other bands?
Kieth:Well I'm in another band that I'd honestly rather not talk about being in haha. But Kyle is in some new local band around here called Lifestream and Brendan is in like 2 or 3 other bands in the Boston area
So you know why we're not super active
chris:no real band has 'one band only' members
chris:well no crucial band anyway.
whats it like having Boston as your local scene?
Kieth:It's really cool. I mean I'm actually a couple hours west of Boston but whatever it's all Massachusetts. But I guess I'm just spoiled or so I'm told for getting to see so many bands a lot of other kids like and haven't seen before
chris:i only ask cause it seems Boston is known for having consistently good/prolific bands.Would you agree with that statement?
KiethOh for sure
chris:any local favourites?(drop names)
KiethI like Waste Management a lot. Also Step Forward, Rival Mob, Free Spirit, and No Tolerance.Those bands are killing it
chris:Rival Mob are one of the best bands ive heard in the last year or two.what do you make of their shirts going for millions of $'s?
chris:im def not exagerating here
KiethShirt flipping on ebay is out of control right now. I think it's really stupid especially when I go to a show and see a shirt, then the same night it's on ebay and ends up going for 100 dollars. I definitely don't support it but what are you gonna do?
Hopefully that shit stops soon but I don't think it will for a while.
chris:bid hard?
chris:i know you've been saving those gems and are going to make bank soon
Kieth:Oh of course
chris:im stealing a question here,what summer movie was your favourite this year?
Kieth:It's very rare for me to go see a movie so I don't think I had a favorite. All the movies I saw were pretty bad. When I do watch movies they are usually sci-fi or based off of a cartoon or something nerdy like that. But yeah, I can't even think of a favorite haha
I guess The Karate Kid if I had to pick one, though that wasn't too good either.
chris:you didnt see the last shitbender did you?
I saw the midnight showing!And boy was I disappointed
chris:haha i can say so
Kieth:I mean I knew it would be bad, but that movie was the world thing I've ever paid to see in a theater in my entire life
chris:i can imagine it would be like payiing to see the Dragonball live action
Kieth:I saw that shit online because I knew I'd be disappointed no matter what,and I was
chris:i saw that shit on a plane to Japan.
i felt fucking sick/dirty after watching it.
Kieth:They butchered it so bad. That movie was even worse than the Airbender one and that's really hard to do
out of the Boston stable who do you like most?at present or older.
Kieth:Like what bands?
Kieth:And how present do you mean?
chris:like playing now
Kieth:Damn that's too hard of a question.I couldn't even pick
chris:ok i can do better.what Boston band do you wsih you got to see?
Kieth:Considering I just saw a ton of older boston bands recently I'm gonna say SSD
chris:damn,how was that DYS show?
Kieth:It was cool. A lot of old bands that I'll probably never see again. I'm glad I experienced it
chris:best band of the evening?
Kieth:Slapshot haha
chris:fuck id kill to see that band play
Kieth:A shit ton of people went nuts, they sounded amazing, Choke had great presence and they played Chunks.
It was a great set!
chris:on the subject of DYS,is there a wolfpack anymore?
chris:Ib Boston like?
Kieth:No haha
chris:I didn't think so haha.
Kieth:Or if there is I don't know about it
chris:if you don't know about it its not worth knowing
chris:ima wrap this up.who should people be listening to?
Kieth:Face Reality, Sorry Excuse, Razor Fade, Stick Together!
chris:i can verify that they are all awesome.any shout outs?
Kieth:Outlast, Resolve, Face Reality, Mindset
chris:November hangage?
Kieth:For sure!

World peace can't be done.

I like these two lads.For some reason they amuse me Even when they're drunk and talking about Black Flag tattoo's.
Or when they're hugging and talking about Black Flag tattoo's.

Anyway they play in both Loose Nut and Crowd Control
and they are going on tour and need some dollar for that and a worrying weed dependency they got going on.

Come to this anyway.The price is a suggested donation but any money you give will have to be in 'lids' or 'bones'.
Help them out.
I have also been informed that Contort are the best band in Dublin.

Thursday, August 19, 2010

i know who my bros are

guitar/polos vocals/big hoods

bass/maddest air

guitar/'tude drums/silk

Get your ass to the lower deck on the 26th and see them play with the mighty
CROWD CONTROL and LOOSE NUT + more to be announced.
Its in Portobello and it starts from half seven supposedly.
Don't be a fucking dick.What else are you going to be doing with your time?

Martin will be there!!!!

Putting this zine together is fun but also headwrecking.Im stoked on the layout i have now though.It will be available any week now.Well maybe a month or so.well lets just say it will come out eventually.Its just a bummer my productivity kicks in around midnight.

This is my "workstation".I wake up with bits of paper in my mouth most mornings.

If theres anything you want to see or reviewed in the print or blog version let me know by mailing me at
im open to aaaaaaaanything.

I was listening to Remission putting these latest pages together.Words fail to describe how good they are.Chile has a national treasure in this band.I can't recommend these guys enough.Do it!Srsly!

Adebisi Shank

Bit of a departure from what i usually post up here but these guys rule and they have a release show this friday in the Whelans.Info HERE
this song rules

and their new record is streaming here

Mick is the nicest person ever.

after the monster celebration of all things Dublin Hardcore i flew out to the UK with the best Glenn i know.It was an early flight that had me fuckered cause Special Ed and Lee were singing NOFX loudly and drunkenly till i fell asleep.Fuck that.
I love hanging out with Glenn though,he is seriously one of the best dudes.

On arriving in London i rendezvous'd with Mr.Alex and we set off on our way to the venue.His iphone's maps went a little crazy for a while but we found the venue by way of a cafe that sold Calpico which is one of my favourite drinks from Japan :)

The pub the show was in was awesome and had an old husky walking around.They also had vegan pizza that was awesome.But first thing was first,i was going to sleep for an hour or two on the floor of the venue

Right Idea
were playing their UK shows with the awesome Times Together which is refreshing to see an appropiate support band being chosen,it doesn't happen often.Also playing the London show were Tremors,who oddly enough last time i saw them was in my house about 9 hours ago, and Coming Through.They are the newest band joining the UK youth crew movement.My good friend Gabor sings for them.This was their first show and despite horrible sound situations they were pretty good.Turning Point cover too,can't go wrong.Also Atilla,their guitarist,is the new Porcell.Believe

Times Together and Right Idea were actually so good at this.Being tired wasn't an option.People in London don't move at smaller shows like this as i learned from the past and this was no exception.Fuck that.I danced a bit and had a great time singing along to two great bands.There was a logistics problem organising who went where and with what gear after the show but i just hung with the RI guys.They were so nice.
We said our goodbyes and headed to our various locations of sleep.

Headed back into London to get the bus to Notts and saw some class buildings

Three hours sleep to Notts was amazing.Almost as amzing as the flier for the show

What can i say?im a sucker for copy and pastes shit like this.If you disagree with me mail me at and we can talk about this and how wrong you are.

The Notts show was awesome and Times Together covered Unity and Chain,so good.People were stoked to see Right Idea.We had hung out in Nandos(delish) and after sharing toilet destroying stories,Nate, we were friends.
From the first song 'Alert!' it was just such a good time.There were pile ons(small ones) and great singalongs.I fucking love that band.They did the Wide Awake intro and covered 'Glue'.That to me is perfection.

Chuck holding it down on the set list front

obligatory crew shot

Overall this was the best weekend ever.I got to hang with some friends i never really get to see and i got to see Right Idea who blew me away.The only downer was i had to get off the plane and head straight to work to do a 13 hour shift.It was hell but i knew it was worth it for good times with friends new and old.

Gotta stick together
Gotta stick together
Gotta stick together
Gotta stick together

Like Glue Like Crew

i need this in my life

What remains more than words?

i haven't updated this in fucking ages so expect a block of posts in the next 24 hours.

i recently had the privilege to see irish hardcore in full effect at Life And Death fest.It was an incredible three days and i got to hang with some good friends and that is the most important thing.

Thats about as solid a lineup as i could want from a local show and im stoked that a shitload of people came out for it.Some of the best sets i've seen Irish bands play went down on these two days.Most noteably Crowd Control.There were a shit tonne of people watching them and actually diving off stuff and getting into it.I probably sustained most of my injuries during that particular set.Also In Time played what i considered to be our best show at this.We covered 'Age' like.That was what we wanted to do since we started.I don't even care that no one sang along.
Well done to Robbie,Cruise and Iano for making this happen.

Lee had the awesome notion of having a Life After Death show in his house on the saturday.Having been at the other shows hes held there(including the first Forging Friendships show) i knew it was going to rule.

The line up was:
Find A Way(reunion-ish)
Famine ,who played a load of FF songs
Bang Bros

It was a lot of fun to have that many people packed into Lee's kitchen.

After very little sleep i had to get my ass to the airport to head to the UK to see two Right Idea shows and hang with some good friends over there.Thats going to be covered in an entry tomorrow.Lucky you right?

For all the awesome shit that was happening that weekend it was a bit of a bummer cause a few people were leaving and thats never good.Sean from
Find A Way was leaving to do a year in Japan,Zach was leaving for Uni in the Uk the worst vacancy will actually be the most permanent cause my boy Robbedge is moving over to the UK for a better job and to move in with his succubus of a girlfriend.Ill miss you dude,big homo.

myself and Robert broing down at 1400ft above sea level.happy birthday bro.
