Fun fact. When I started this podcast I planned to do a little blog about each episode with links to things we talked about and etc… I was like I’ll get caught up after a few episodes… and then… for 70 episodes I continued on blog free…. BUT NOW I AM AM BACK IN THE BLOG-OSPHERE!!!
Thanks for listening. Sincerely.
First I gotta give Vinnie Stigma and Agnostic Front mad respect. True Trailblazers and pioneers!! As a kid I started to get into thrash metal because it was the most aggressive thing I ever heard at that time.
I started to watch Headbangers Ball (12-3am on MTV once a week, back in the day) and the show was inexplicably jam packed with Bullet Boyz, and Enuff Z Nuff nonsense I had to suffer through to get to see an Anthrax video, or a Suicidal Tendencies video…and then one night… in the final moments of the show… around 2:57 am when almost everyone was already in bed… they played this video:
*Bonus points for spotting CRAIG AHEAD on bass! He’s on a very popular episode in our back catalog!
This whole thing kinda scared me. But it also intrigued the hell out of me. What was this place? What the fuck was going on? How sick does your band have to be to have it’s own anthem?
These questions would be answered a few months later when against the wishes of family members I made my first pilgrimage to CBGB’s for a New York Hard Core Sunday Matinee and my life has never been the same.
I didn’t know ANYBODY. I was wearing an Anarchy shirt from a shady head shop on Main Street Flushing, and I figured there was a decent chance I would get beaten up or something. But instead I just was respectful and open minded and had my mind blown by Sick Of It All.
Acceptance, brotherhood, and pure unbridled reality in (at that time) one of the most dangerous parts of NYC.. The Lower East Side… But I digress…….
I wanted to share a few things discussed in the episode…
