Geeked Out

The finer details have not been added yet....

Bought the dreams that i was sold

The shows at the GYC in Guildford a few years back were some of the best ive been to. Cosistently good line ups, people having fun and no cringe-worthy 'tough guy' rubbish.
Crash The Pose were so so so so good, faster than you could comprehend with the best catchy bits, complete DIY attitudes, no nice posed photos or the coolest band tshirts. Everything you'd think a hardcore band should be, but sadly most bands put having a shiny photo-shoot above writing songs as good as this.
Along with this they did a demo, a split with Brain Dead and appeared on a couple of compilation 7"s before morphing Gatecrashers/Pissed Jeans style into The Shitty Limits .
These three songs are, in my opinion, the best ones. ENJOY.

Wasting time and losing friends

That says 'Turn Cold', by the way. Good band, nice guys, members now play in Dead Swans and Chaos Days, lazy comparisons would be American Nightmare / Panic.

Stick around and soon you'll see, that none of you mean a thing to me

Coastal town isolation from Kent. Some of the most introspective and honest lyrics in hardcore backed by Right Brigade style jamzzzzz. Members went on to spoil Canterbury Hardcore.
1. Hartsdown Park
2. Curse My Name
3. Black Whole

The Monster Is You

Now this is how to do a demo. Hard cardboard with cotton stretched over it, made into a book for the lyrics, held together by a pink sash.
This band were from Norwich, members used to play in Bleed 13/Hearts and they did crazy things like let their main vocalist have a guitar. In my opinion, such an amazing mix of Nerve Agents/Black Flag-esque hardcore and Hellcat punk with more of Robin Fullers poetic lyrics. Fucking furious live yet so underrated at the time. If you havnt heard this and are a fan of The Nerve Agents, you will love this and be astonished that you havnt heard it before. Also, that Hearts 7" was fucking good....

You Only Love Your Fucking Self

Before Raise The White Flag broke up, we recorded a last demo for our final 3 or 4 shows. When Gray quit, me, Sam and Kieron started The Outpatients with me old mate Mark on vocals. We recorded a demo but The Outpatients were really short lived as we only played about 4 shows. So we decided to put both demos on a 7". Loved playing in both bands, just a shame RTWF ended on a bit of a sour note....

...we're still mates though.

First 4 tracks are RTWF, last 6 are The Outpatients. Curse Of The Worst is my favourite.

There's Only Bad Weather Ahead

Cold Snap demo. Guys have played in a fuck load of bands between them, notable ones being On Thin Ice, Out Of Hand Chaos days and The Break In.
When things were looking bleak hardcore-wise in the south, Cold Snap seemed to come out of nowhere and have really been a catalyst in the rise of good, honest hardcore down here. Its getting there again.
