and when they’ve used you and they’ve broken you and wasted all your money and cast your shell aside and when they’ve bought you and they’ve sold you and they’ve billed you for the pleasure and they’ve made your parents cry I will be here. Believe me.
A band not many people know about, RAGE. A first show, last show, type deal. Vic DiCara fronted, Al Pain on drums, Frosty Crunch on guitar, and Andy Alvarez on bass. This was already somewhat up on youtube, but in parts, and without some of the best stage banter I’ve heard. “You’re all gonna die very shortly, and all the little games you play, your little slogans - they’re not gonna amount to shit when your body’s a pile of dust six feet in the mud”.
Amenity’s final show - from my friend Eric’s collection. One of my favorite hardcore bands of all time, and definitely one of California’s most underrated / hidden gems. Everything in this set from the mini riot that breaks out vs. security not even 1 song in, to the SSD cover, is sick
Look at the mountain My girl and I used to stand on the mountain And the sun shines, she’s dead, and I cry But I can see through this death and the sadness And so I won’t die now Someday I wanna be dignified and old.
