  • The Stimulators - Loud Fast Rules!/Run Run Run 7

    5:34

    Both sides off their self released 7'' in 1980.

    The Stimulators were one of the last great punk bands in New York City before Hardcore/Thrash took over. The Stimulators played fast, but kept a tight melodic bite in the catchy, feisty songs. Loud, Fast Rules, the song for which they're most remembered, is a rousing blast of energy with sing-along lyrics and a sharp, compact sound that goes straight to the center of your brain. Their later work wandered into the thrashier side of Punk and their drummer, Harley Flanagan, went on to start the Cro-Mags. Aside from their appearance on the Roir Records compilation New York Thrash, they released one 7 single (now a highly prized collectors item and a helluva record to this day) as well as a live tape, also on Roir. The Stimulators broke up right around the time the 7 was released, leaving a short but lasting mark on the New York punk scene. Photos were taken from kbdrecords.com, but the .mp3's are from my rip. Here are the lyrics to Loud Fast Rules!:

    Your life's too set to ever see life. You'll never get from me what you so wanted.

    But now you say that you'll slow down, your quiet place has let you down.

    And now you say that you will listen. I'll play it loud to get it through your thick head.

    'Cause now you're ready to slow down, your many friends have let you down.

    Loud rules, loud loud rules. Fast rules, loud fast rules. Our rules.

    We're gonna say it loud (LOUD!), we're gonna live it fast (FAST!), let's try it my way, we'll do it my way. You're dyin' to be seen, you're ready to be heard. We'll try it my way, let's do it my way.

    You want attention, you want affection, do you deserve it? You want attention, you want affection, you better get it straight. It's time I think you come around, it's time to stop being a clown.

    You want romance, I can see in a glance, you better get it straight. You want romance, can you take a chance, I can see in a glance.

    We're gonna play it loud (LOUD!), we're gonna live it fast (FAST!). We'll try it my way, let's do it my way. You're dyin' to be seen, you're ready to be heard. We'll try it my way, we'll do it my way.

    You spend your life in coffee houses. You'll never see me there so stop and listen. I think it's time you come around, it's time to fill your head with sound.

    The Tights were a young Punk Rock band from Worcester. This is Cherry Red #1, it was recorded in only one or two takes with the energy and enthusiasm of sixteen year olds which they were! Bad Hearts, was played by John Peel, and made single of the week in Record Mirror and subsequently reached number six on the indie chart. The Follow up, Howard Hughes, reached number four. The band lasted for just a few years and played their farewell gig at the Marquee Club (then still in its original location on Wardour Street) in 1979. In 2004 the band reformed. Get the two singles on the Cherry Red compilation CD, The Punk Singles Collection.

  • Shift - No Avail

    3:05

    SHIFT was an American Hardcore band out of New York City who came on the scene in the year of 1992. Possibly the only band out who were a trio outfit, consisting of Joshua Loucka (Vocals/Guitar) , Brandon Simpson (Vocals/Bass Guitar) , and Samantha Maloney (Drums). Formed while still in high school - with original drummer Johnathan Kaye - SHIFT began playing shows within the tri-state area and soon attracted the ear of the under 21 populous army who were coming of age to a steady diet of bands such as: Gorilla Biscuits, Burn, Leeway and a plethora of great NYHC bands; and were now itching for a band they could call their own.
    With the Bond St. Café serving as the venue supporting this new wave of New York Hardcore bands, SHIFT along with MIND OVER MATTER, STILLSUIT, ANOTHER WALL, BLINDSIDE, FOUNTAIN HEAD, MOUTH PIECE, NEGLECT, WHEELCHAIR, LOYAL TO NONE, ORIGINS, FEAR OF LIFE and many other bands based in the New York and Long Island area would continue the thread of the Hardcore/Punk sound and add their own stitch to the musicality and attitude.
    A follow up to their first self titled 5 song demo, the 'Turnbuckle' release showcases SHIFT'S songwriting ability was well beyond their years and properly nailed down a time and place for a new generation of Hardcore kids.

  • Cro Mags - See the signs

    4:08

    Copyright 1992. Century Media Records

    From Wikipedia:
    The Cro-Mags were a hardcore punk band from New York City. The band, which had a strong cult following, released many records, their first two considered the most influential. They were among the first bands to fuse hardcore punk with thrash metal and were associated with the birth of a tougher attitude within the hardcore scene in the late 1980s. They were also one of the first hardcore punk bands associated with the Hare Krishna movement.

    History

    They first released a demo with songs that would eventually find themselves on their debut album The Age Of Quarrel (1986). The bass player Harley Flanagan and singer John Joseph were not the best of friends and eventually Joseph would part ways with the band leaving Harley to sing on the following Cro-Mags release. After The Age of Quarrel, the band released the record Best Wishes (1989). The record had a more heavy metal-influenced sound which alienated many of their fans. The band released another record Alpha Omega (1992), that saw the return of Joseph, and the departure of guitarist and songwriter Parris Mitchell Mayhew, a record that was only embraced by the most devoted of their fanbase, and followed by Near Death Experience (1993). After suffering from many lineup changes and frequent breakups, the group finally disbanded, seemingly for the last time, after this record. However, in 2000 they released a record that would almost make up for their past two releases. With Revenge the Cro-Mags came back to their early hardcore roots with songs that were comparable to their first release plus some songs with a more melodic/punk rock feel. After the release of Revenge the band broke up once again, and the internal hostility amongst band members (mainly between Mayhew and Flanagan) has never been resolved.

    At various times in the 90s and 00s both Harley and John Joseph simultaneously led 2 separate versions of the Cro-Mags with completely different line-ups. These groups billed themselves as Cro-Mag Jam, Cro-Mags-NYC, Age of Quarrel or Cro-Mags (whether or not the name was owned legally by the certain version of the band in question). Sometimes only one original member would be present, sometimes two or three, and sometimes even both John Joseph and Harley together. The five members that played on the recording of The Age of Quarrel are generally considered to be the classic line-up, or original members, but the truth is that membership in the Cro-Mags was frequently fluctuating from the very start.
