Chewy ep streaming

A Step Apart discography

Never made it to press so has been put up online in its entireity.Seriously good band.

"After having recorded a promo and a demo, Not Just Words Records (from the Netherlands) picked A Step Apart up to release their debut EP, followed by two other EP’s. When the band quit, plans were made to release a discography CD with everything the band had ever recorded. Two Asian labels and also React Records showed interest to handle the overseas releases. In the end, it never came out.

After getting to know Ronald (Not Just Words Recs), we came with the idea to make it available for download through my blog and share the music of what was one of the best hardcore groups from the 00's.

A Step Apart started out in 2003, playing classic youth crew hardcore who got everyones attention during The First Step Europe Tour in 2004. After 2 demos and 3 sould out EPs they made their final appearance at the Light The Fuse Fest in May 2006.

Buffalo kid needs your help

This is a situation beyond fucked up that anyone involved in hardcore can relate too.We all get injured and had near misses.Sometimes worst case scenarios like this happen.

On the evening of Thursday, April 14th 2011 the Buffalo hardcore community gathered at Mohawk Place to support Terror and Trapped Under Ice as they took the stage to play a show.

With plenty of pile-on�s, stage-diving, sing-along�s and an incredible vibe of unity and energy, the show got off to an awe.some start.

However, what began as a good-old hardcore show ended in a tragic incident that has forever altered the life of one of Buffalo hardcore�s very own members.

MIKE BIRD, regular show-goer, hardcore kid, and a member of the Buffalo Straight Edge community, was knocked to the ground by a stage-diver. Hitting his back and head on the concrete floor, Mike had to be rushed to the hospital via ambulance to be treated for his injuries. Unable to move his limbs, or feel any pain in his lower-body, Mike received emergency spinal surgery for his injuries.
The official diagnosis indicates that Mike broke the C5 and C6 vertebrae in his lower spine. With no feeling in his legs, it is unclear how soon 19-year old Mike will regain use of his lower body and be able to walk (or mosh) again.

Without the luxury of being able to afford his own health insurance coverage, this injury is crippling financially as well.
An ambulance ride, emergency room visit, sophisticated spinal surgery, X-Rays, physical therapy, and medication leaves Mike Bird with a medical bill that will most-likely amount to a six-figure sum. His lack of insurance and limited mobility will make paying this debt an impossible task.

The Buffalo hardcore community is banding together, pooling our collective resources and organizing benefit events to help offset Mike Bird�s medical bills.


The community aspect of hardcore is something that transcends the boundaries of cities, crews, cliques, scenes, and sub-genres.
We are ALL hardcore kids; we�re all cut from the same cloth.
We ALL go to shows, we ALL stage dive, and we�ve ALL had our share of mishaps.

It could have been any one of us in Mike Bird�s shoes.
He just happened to draw the short straw that night and get knocked down.
But as we all know, when someone gets knocked down in hardcore, we PICK THEM BACK UP.

Several benefit events are being organized within the Buffalo scene as we speak.
I�m told that both Terror and Trapped Under Ice are both on-board for a special merch-run related to this incident.

We have set up a PayPal account for donations.
100% of the money donated to this PayPal will go DIRECTLY to Mike Bird�s medical expenses.

If you have ANYTHING you can donate via PayPal, a quarter, a dollar, two dollars, please send donations via paypal to:

NO donation is too small.
Mike Bird has NOTHING, so ANYTHING you can donate will add up.

If you have any questions about this fundraising effort, or want to help out and become involved, shoot me an e-mail at

Camp Records fiesta

The delightful dude that is Dave over at Camp Records is taking pre-orders for a comp he is putting out.Its called 'more than a piece of mind' and it has INJ/SYS,Caught In A Crowd,In Time(not that one),Truth Inside and Razorxfade.You can order it here.Theres still copis on black and yellow available.Get on this.

While you are over there pick up a sweet Atari shirt.These are reprinted with the permission of the band and Dave is a truly awesome dude for printing these up.Summer is coming up and theres nothing better to rock on hot days than a white shirt would go great with camo shorts or beige cargo shorts.Just picture it.


When I amn’t jamming Atari I can be found getting chill to Boston’s permier export Mental.
As of late ‘planet mental’ has been my maimest jam. Theres something about that record I can’t quite get enough of. The lyrics are a more matured offering than ‘Yo!’ and deal with bogey friendships which I can get down with. Greg also answered some questions I had to put to him and they will appear in issue 2 of the zine.

This is Planet Mental

On Tumblr and you can buy shit from the Bigcartel

Robbie has developed a mad dependency on "substances" so buying stuff will mean he gets to keep his fingers which also good for Bang Bros.

Added to the store is a recently discovered box of Frustration 'endless winter' 7"s.That release is a straight up banger and would look real good in your recod collection.Whether you play it or not.

While i try my best not to be selfaggrandizing i recently had the honour to sing a Cro Mags cover with them at their tour kick off show.I love that band.
Here is a video

Dublin hardcore still on top in 2011
Gotta say a big thank you to Special Ed for pointing me towards these guys.My summer is sorted.
