Straight-ahead / fast-as-fuck / chaotic / Zorlac--shreddin' skatecore from Houston, TX. fronted by none other than John "Tex" Gibson & Todd Prince - both major (pro) players in the Texas skate(rock) scene back in the eighties.
John can still rip it these days - I'm assuming Todd does as well, and while this isn't your usual "tough guy" hardcore, it is without a doubt a solid piece of hardcore / skate rock history.
"Skaterock" as a sub-genre hasn't held up real well over the years (if at all, really), and these guys were better than most of the pack - that goes for skating ability as well as rockin' ability, by the way.

Goes down down great with some snapback-gnarlers on fat coping (followed by a couple cold ones, bro)...

    E-mail me directly & I will send you a direct link if you still need it.

    Link=Protector seems to causing problems for some folks, so I quit using it recently.
    Seems they sold out to the ad/viral ad people.
