Twenty-five years. Has it been that long?
Twenty-five years ago :
a). I graduated from high school.
b). I smoked forty acres of weed a day.
c). I stayed up all night (most nights).
d). I was obsessed with skateboarding (still am).
e). I did everything I could to remain unemployed all summer long.
f). I would go road-trippin' at the mere mention of it.
g). This record came out.
It became a major part of my daily soundtrack for the next few years.
There's a few different / somewhat worthy bands that you could say have "The Chicago Sound", but THIS record is the pinnacle for me.
"All Rise" was titties too, but the guitar & bass tones on this slab cut both sharp & deep (as well as L-O-U-D), and it put these guys at or near the top of the (post?) hardcore heap..
Honestly? I haven't listened to this record in MANY years all the way through, & right now it's reminding me of this sick old Levi's denim vest I used to wear all the time - where the fuck is that thing anyways..?
By the way...
The Lo-Res Viscera "hotel" is closed.
Mom had a lovely time & went back to MI, my NYC & ATL crews have gona back home as well.
The kitchen remodel is 93.4% done, the hangovers are becoming fewer in between, and things are starting to fall back in line, so hopefully - I know you've heard this before - the posts will be more frequent.
Thanks for stopping by, as always (all five of you), ha ha.
