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
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....

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.

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.
