No Redeeming Social Value - Slumlords

Location: Queens + Baltimore
Release: Conformist Recs. + Juke Boxxx, 2005

I fuckin' luv N.R.S.V. Its classic NYHC, funny as hell and has the illest live performances. ATTENTION! This is not suitable for the faint of heart or virgin people, it will mess you up! Songs about booze, eating disorder, tattoos, 40 oz. malt liquors, butter, microwaves and other wacky subjects as a result of large consumption of alcohol aggravated by hallucinogenic substances.

They started in '93 Queens, NY and has Vinny Value (Warzone) playing the drums from time to time. Celebrating 25 years of existence they did dozens of records, world tours and insane video clips! One of those records was a split with another fine hardcore group, Baltimore's SLUMLORDS featuring Jeff Perlin (Breakdown) on vocals. They own some equally hilarious lyrics backed by that heavy NY Oi! sound.

I got my hands on the japanese version of that split album, filled with extras. They play each others songs, live recordings and a few videos! GADEMM!

My God Rides a Skateboard Mixtape


4 years motherfuckers! GADEMM!! To celebrate the blog's anniversary I chose 3 friends and asked them to pick 4 songs each, songs to shred and burn on the sidewalk surfin'.

The last time I did a compilation was 2 years ago, the 2 Years Retrospective Compilation with a contribution from Arty Straight On View! Now here's 4 different takes on skate music:

MYSELF (aka Mene, Mariano, CcLaw, Dr.F-R ..)

00. CRISPUS ATTUCKS - MY GOD RIDES A SKATEBOARD [Spermbirds] 
01. XFILESX - Long Boards Are Wrong Boards
02. BONES BRIGADE - Rock To Fakie
03. SSS - Purple Reign
04. SUICIDAL TENDENCIES - Go Skate!



Faço das palavas do Max Scholastic as minhas "[...]this is not just about how lame ESPN and the corporate take-over of skateboarding is; its also about some very wrong assumptions that most skaters hold. Skateboarding is not a sport. And guess what, IT IS a crime. Relish in that fact. Don't fucking get co-opted by your local city council when you're fighting for your 'legal right to skate'. Ever since I was in 4th grade I had to run from the pigs - deal with it. Enjoy the fact that you are DESTROYING  property that is owned by a bank, corporate office, post office, the federal government! That's what this is about, to fucking mark up their pristine ledges, stairs, curbs, rails, to destroy the rich's renovated pools. Fuck all of them!" - SHACKLE ME NOT


RICK PELLARIO (Clearview's vox, 90's skater and gym rat)

05. EXODUS - Hammer of Life
06. GOOD RIDDANCE - Heresy Hypocrisy Revenge [Fat Version]
07. PENNYWISE - X Generation
08. xJUSTICEx - Push It To The Edge



"Aproximadamente uns 11 minutos e pouco de insanidade musical apropriado para quem gosta de destruir no skate. Essa é a trilha ideal para um role veloz de skate, seja fazendo downhill, voando alto nas rampas ou mesmo destruindo as ruas! Longboard é pra quem usa sapatenis; mountainboard não é skateboard e essa moda de skatinho minúsculo que você só consegue remar e nada além disso, meu amigo(a), escuta essa trilha sonora e mude o seu conceito, ok? Estou dando a dica, então curta essa trilha porque o resto é contigo!
Mantenha o skateboarding um crime!"


MARCELO BASTOS (dedicated LO-FI drummer and a Zorlac appreciator)

09. MUNICIPAL WASTE – The Fatal Feast
10. R.K.L. – Break the Camels Back
11. LAGWAGON – Foiled Again
12. ALL – World on Heroin [Live]


"Uma bela tarde de domingo e eu saio para a rua da minha pequena cidade com meu skate.
Não canso de ver o mesmo cenário de sempre: playboys com seus carros turbinados e tocando música de merda, igrejas lotadas depois das 20h, mendigos deitados na rua de ressaca e penso: que lixo de lugar.
Coloco meus fones no ouvido e o skate no pé e começo a imaginar como seria um mundo melhor: zumbis tentando comer o resto de cérebro que sobrou depois de tanta droga que estes playboys consumiram, meteoros caindo em cima de seus carros de som, fazendo um verdadeiro barulho, a polícia tentando conter tudo isso mas sendo atacada por naves alienígenas de um planeta não muito distante, igrejas pegando tanto fogo que a água benta não pode apagar e por fim os mendigos ainda na rua deitados de ressaca.
Droga, acabou a música, de volta a realidade cruel..."


STEVE LIMA (legit old school skater and punk rocker)

13. CEREBRAL BALLZY - Sk8 All Day
14. MINUS ONE - The Kids Dont Skate Here
15. EIGHT DAYZ - Whats So Strange About Me
16. McRAD - Violin

"Bem-vindo à Venice, cidade fundada em 1905, e criada como homônimo da Venice italiana, com uma idéia inicial de ser um resort praiano e ser a Veneza americana. Situada na ensolarada Califórnia próximo de Los Angeles e Santa Barbara, Venice Beach é famosa por suas praias, canais, e principalmente pelo “calçadão” com 4 km de extensão, uma grande atração turística onde é possível se locomover em caminhadas, corridas, bike, skate, patins, etc, e como em qualquer lugar é um grande centro urbano também onde se encontra de tudo, desde lojas, vendedores ambulantes, artistas, performances musicais, adivinhos, etc.
Considerada um dos berços do skate onde nasceram alguns dos mais conhecidos Z-Boys, como Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams, Jim Muir entre outros, está situada no triângulo praiano conhecido por ‘Dogtown’ abrangendo uma marcação através de uma linha divisória imaginária com as cidades de Santa Monica, Ocean Park e Venice Beach."

ICEPICK (NL) - Discography

Location: Amsterdam, Nederlands
Release: Not Just Words / The Limit, 2003-2010

They became dutch legends, from a sold out 500 copies tape 'No Forgiveness' back in 2003 (found one in Fluff fest last year, but was quite expensive), through a masterpiece EP 'Goldrush' in 2005 to a final 2-song EP 'Quicksand' in 2010. Icepick wrote their history in hardcore.

Back in 2005 I was purchasing everythin' that Ronald Boorsma put out on Not Just Words and Goldrush was just superb, totally amazing production, from artwork to recording, flawless.

Rumours says that after a reunion show in 2012 and a possible repress of Goldrush (previously only available in CD) in 12"format by Street Survival Records, they are getting back together once again!!





In this interview they talk amongst other subjects about the big mess regarding the band's name, that was taken by a north american group.

Artwork: Linas Garsys
Location: Philadelphia, US
Release: Dead By 23 Records, 2003 (out of print)

Robby Redcheeks band. He used to run Dead By 23 records, famous for making dozens of variations of each record he put out! In this interview he explains (among other things) how important the artwork was for the label, another remarkable aspect of DB23.

DAMAGE began in 2000, a philly sxe raw and to-the-point hardcore group. They released an EP through Deathwish Inc. in 2001 that became very sought afer for awhile, then they got back in 2003 as DAMAGE II for a final 4 song EP entitled "Broken Bloodlines", 5 minutes length no frills that will leave your head banging, asking for more.


These are long out of print but its not hard to stumble upon some copies on ebay, discogs, etc.. feel it:

CLEAN BREAK - Demo 2013

Location: Faro, Portugal
Release: Straight & Alert / Salad Days, 2013

I guess I will never grow tired of youth crew. Hardcore for some is a 2-years-phase in a kids life, for me it became part of who I am and so is for the dudes in CLEAN BREAK, straight edge veterans reponsible for other projects such as Critical Point and Pressure.

Their demo originally released in August (tape format), got good responses all around and sold out quickly. Shortly after they were asked to be part of the international hardcore comp. YOUTH CREW 2014!

Now Alexis Straight & Alert join forces with David Salad Days to release the demo in 7" format and is about to hit the streets pretty soon, dont sleep (again)!

Interview w/ Diego Garcia (DEDICATION)


This is not over yet folks, I have some good plans for this blog in 2014, still got plenty of stuff to upload.

2013 was a bless for brazilian hardcore, a needed new wave of bands rose and gave our scene a fresh breeze showing that a good and fun gig can be done with local bands only. And one of the highlights, at least for me, is DEDICATION, a new project done by the Garcia brothers (X-Punch, Final Round, Sentenced). Around August of this very same year they put their demo online and got people's attention around the globe.


I sent some questions to Diego Garcia (vocals) and translated here (in portuguese right after):

HOW THIS PROJECT STARTED (INCLUDING RECORDING PROCESS)?
Diego: back in the middle of this year I was missing a band that played 80’s youth crew here in São Paulo, so I talked with Daniel that I was going to write songs in that vein and immediatly he said “if you do, count me in”. In the next day I wrote 3 songs (Motivation, My Choice e I Say No).

With those 3 songs the plan was to record a demo, something simple without any expectation. Initially me and Daniel were going to record everything, I was going to sing and play the drums and him bass and guitar. But Im a horrible drummer, so I asked Rafael Kabelo that played with me in X-PUNCH to record this demo, with an idea in mind “its a summer project, we are going to record a demo and we are done”, following this terms he agreed, then I asked Fabio Binha that play with Kabelo in POSITIVE YOUTH to handle the bass duties, also with the same idea of “summer project”.

In the meantime Daniel did the melodies for Break the Chain and I Still Believe. Before our very first meeting as a band I did the 2 remaining lyrics and scheduled our first rehearsal. After two rehearsals we set a date for the recording session. We had less than a month to go back to college. We did a simple 2 hours semi-live recording process and the demo came out. 

IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS THERE WAS A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF BANDS PLAYING OLD SCHOOL HARDCORE AND ITS VARIATIONS IN BRAZIL. HOW DO YOU SEE ALL THIS REVIVAL?
Diego: Im glad with all thats happening, its good to see people producing more each time and with a higher standard from the beginning. I attribute the fact that people are playing more old school because they’re getting to know it more.

Here in São Paulo, until recently the boom was all about bands influenced by modern Madball (infiltrate the system) or metalcore, this I believe, was due because those genres are more approachable. Today people started to look back to bands who started it all.


FIRST RECORD OUT “BREAK THE CHAINS” AND SEVERAL LABELS GOT INTERESTED, SOMETHING UNSUAL TO SEE HAPPENING HERE RIGHT FROM THE START, ALSO THE INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMP. YOUTH CREW 2014!
HOW IT ALL HAPPENED? TO ME, IT SEEMED SO FAST!
Diego: It took me by surprise, the acceptance was beyond my expectations and happened all too fast like you said. I think this boom is due also to the power that internet exerts in communication nowadays. We showed it to some friends, they showed to others until it reached Toni (Positive & Focused). He liked our band and invited us to be part of YC’14. 
Right after Hector (SP Discos) released the demo in cassette and got together with Toni and Entes Anomicos to release the vinyl version of it. Also there will be a version of our demo in cassette pressed by Gold Rain Recs and another one in CD by Heartworks, both from Argentina.

AS YOU SAID BEFORE, DEDICATION WAS GOING TO BE A SHORT-TERM PROJECT, BUT AFTER ALL THE ACCEPTANCE AND UPROAR (LOL), WHAT ARE THE PLANS NOW?
Diego: I end up falling in love by the band, not so much by its repercussion but for the sensation to play those songs, for the experience of the first show and to be next of friends I care the most, I believe now I wont let go of this project easily.
For 2014 we have 2 gigs scheduled in Argentina and a few here in São Paulo, and I already have some songs ready for a next EP or split, who knows...

WHICH BANDS IN ACTIVITY ARE BURSTING OFF?
Diego: The list is huge, lol. Mindset, Enough, No Tolerance, Praise, Beware, Clear, Appraise, Justify, Raw Justice, Ancient Heads are bands that needs no presentation, but Im appreciating a lot the evolution of newer bands such as Time and Distance from here, São Paulo. Im looking closely their work and know that they will surprise many people one day.

Im very fond of Clean Break from Portugal, their demo is astonishing and I have high expectation on their yet to come new material. Other bands in the same position are Safe and Sound from US and the japanese at Stand United.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR MTB? WHEN WE ARE GOING TO PEDAL AGAIN?
Diego: After the marriage I end up slacking in my running training as of biking, today I think I wouldn’t bare the ride we did once (São Paulo -> Santos) lol. But im getting back to running and maybe in mid 2014 we can take off on an adventure like that, good enough?

AND THE SHOUT OUT GOES TO?
Diego: I suck at these things, but im going to send a shout to my buddies in the band (Dan, Binha and Kbl) for sharing this stuff with me, to Biel (Final Round) for always being there helping us out, to Toni (P&F), Hector (SP Discos), Carlos (Entes Anomicos) for releasing our 7”, to Mario Flores (Gold Rain Records) for putting out our demo cassette in Argentina and for booking our show there, to Rodo (Heartwork) for making the demo in CD, to you Cesar, also to Rafa (Pointing Finger) for all the support and to everyone who came to us and talked about, thank you. Because of your motivation we decided to keep it up!



-----------------------------PORTUGUÊS---------------------------

COMO COMEÇOU ESSE PROJETO (INCLUINDO GRAVAÇÕES)?
Buneco: No meio desse ano de 2013 eu estava sentindo falta de uma banda mais na linha youth crew 80’ aqui em são paulo, então falei com o Daniel que iria fazer umas musicas nessa linha e imediatamente ele me falou algo do tipo “se fizer, me chama para tocar”. 

Então, no dia seguinte, fiz 3 musicas (Motivation, My Choice e I Say No).
Com essas três musicas a ideia agora era gravar uma demo, algo bem simples sem nenhum compromisso. Inicialmente eu e o Daniel planejamos gravar tudo, eu iria gravar vocal e bateria, ele iria gravar baixo e guitarra. Mas sou péssimo baterista, então chamei o Rafael Kabelo que tocou comigo no X-Punch para gravar essa demo, com a ideia de “vai ser um projeto de verão, iremos gravar essa demo e já podemos acabar a banda”, nessas condições ele gostou da ideia, então chamei o Fabio Binha que toca com o Kabelo no Positive Youth para segurar o baixo, também com essa mesma proposta de “projeto de verão”. Nesse meio tempo o Daniel fez a melodia das musicas Break the Chains e I Still Believe.

Antes mesmo do nosso primeiro contato como banda eu fiz as duas letras que faltavam e marcamos o primeiro ensaio. Então foram dois ensaios e já marcamos a gravação. Tinhamos menos de uma mês até as aulas da faculdade voltar. Fizemos uma gravação simples de 2 horas no esquema semi ao vivo e com isso saiu a demo.


NOS ÚLTIMOS MESES HOUVE UM INCREMENTO SUBSTANCIAL DE QUANTIDADE E QUALIDADE DE BANDAS NOVAS TOCANDO HARDCORE OLD SCHOOL E SUAS VARIANTES NO BRASIL. COMO VC ENXERGA ESSE REVIVAL TODO?
Buneco: Eu fico muito feliz com tudo isso, é muito bom ver que as pessoas estão produzindo cada vez mais e com uma qualidade alta logo de começo. Eu meio que atribuo o fato das pessoas estarem tocando mais old school por estarem conhecendo mais.
Aqui em são paulo até pouco tempo atrás o boom ou era bandas no estilo madball moderno (infiltrate the system) ou bandas meio metalizadas, isso acredito eu, por serem estilos que chegavam fácil para qualquer um. Hoje as pessoas voltaram a correr atrás das bandas que começaram com isso tudo.

PRIMEIRO DISCO GRAVADO “BREAK THE CHAINS” E VÁRIOS SELOS INTERESSADOS (EM K7 PELA SP DISCOS E VINIL PELA POSITIVE & FOCUSED) AMBOS SITUADOS NA EUROPA, ALGO INCOMUM DE SE VER POR AQUI LOGO NUMA ESTREIA, ALÉM DO CONVITE PARA PARTICIPAR DA COLETÂNEA YOUTH CREW 2014! COMO TUDO ISSO ACONTECEU? A MEU VER, FOI TUDO MUITO RÁPIDO!
Diego: Estou completamente surpreso até agora, a aceitação foi muito acima das minhas expectativas e tudo muito rápido como você falou. Acredito que esse boom se deve também ao poder que a internet exerce na comunicação hoje em dia. Mostramos para alguns amigos, esses por sua vez mostraram para outros, até que caiu no ouvido do Toni (P&F). Ele gostou da banda e nos convidou para a YC’14. Pouco depois o Hector (SP Discos) lançou a fita k7 e se juntou com o Toni e a Entes Anomicos para lançar a nossa demo em vinil.
Além desses lançamentos, ainda vai sair uma versão da nossa demo em k7 pela Gold Rain Recs e outra em cd pela Heartworks, ambas na argentina.

COMO JÁ HAVIA ME DITO, DEDICATION ERA PRA SER UM PROJETO DE CURTA DURAÇÃO, MAS DEPOIS DE TAMANHA ACEITAÇÃO E CLAMOR (RISOS) QUAIS OS PLANOS AGORA?
Buneco: Eu acabei me apaixonando pela banda, nem tanto pela repercussão, mas pela sensação de tocar aquelas musicas, pela experiência do primeiro show e por estar ao lado de amigos que tanto gosto, acredito que agora dificilmente irei desistir dessa banda rs. Agora para 2014 temos dois shows marcados na argentina alguns marcados aqui em são paulo mesmo e já estou com algumas musicas prontas para um próximo lançamento, talvez outro 7” ou um split, sei la..

QUAIS BANDAS EM ATIVIDADE ESTÃO COM A CORDA TODA?
Buneco: A lista é enorme, rs. Mindset, Enough, No Tolerance, Praise, Beware, Clear, Appraise, Justify, Raw Justice, Ancient Heads, são bandas que dispensam comentários, mas estou gostando bastante de ver a evolução de bandas mais novas como é o caso do Time and Distance aqui de são paulo, estou acompanhando de perto o trabalho deles e sei que eles vão surpreender muita gente ainda.
Gosto bastante do Clean Break de portugal, a demo deles é surpreendente e tenho grande expectativa nos próximos materiais deles, outras bandas nessas mesmas condições é o Safe And Sound dos estados unidos e o Stand United do japão.

E A BIKE? QUANDO VAMOS PEDALAR DENOVO?
Buneco: Depois do casamento acabei relaxando nos treinos tanto de corrida como na bike, hoje acho que não aguentaria um role igual aquele que fizemos (são paulo -> santos) rs. Mas estou voltando a correr, acredito que no meio de 2014 a gente consegue fazer outra aventura como essa, o que você acha ?

O SALVE VAI PRA QUEM?
Buneco: Sou péssimo para essas coisas, mas vou deixar um salve pros caras da banda (Dan, Binha e Kbl) por compartilharem essas paradas comigo, para o Biel (Final Round) por sempre estar nos ajudando, para o Toni (P&F), Hector (SP Discos), Carlos (Entes Anomicos) por lançarem nosso 7”, para o Mario Flores (Gold Rain Records) por lançar nossa demo em k7 na argentina e organizar nosso show por la, ao Rodo (Heartwork) por lançar nossa demo em cd na argentina, pra você Cesinha, para o Rafa (Pointing Finger) por todo apoio e a todos que nos procuraram e trocaram ideia com nós, muito obrigado, graças a motivação de vocês, nós decidimos continuar!
