SKAM DUST - Corona Drug Bust

Location: Corona Queens, N.Y.
Release: CountDown Records, 2010 

With Lord Ezec's motivation Skam Dust started his own project, featuring D.M.S. infamous members Freddy Crucien, Puerto Rican Myke, Lu Subzero, Ceekay Jones among other collabs like Earth Crisis and Olde York singers, they bring true thug-core straight from the Rotten Apple. This album compiles 16 tracks taken from Skam Dust EP "Son of Skarhead", Son of Skam's "Sing Of The Times" and a few brand new releases, including the off-the-chains track that entitled this release - Corona Drug Bust.

Skam Dust himself once said "My lyrics tell the stories of my youth, recalling a time when the police and the public were in a state of panic. A time when the 44 Killer, otherwise known as the Son Of Sam, was on the loose and filling the city with terror. Meanwhile, NYC was undergoing a city-wide blackout. My lyrics speak about the excitement that filled the city after the NY Yankees won the World Series and Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in one game. And they speak about the days when graffiti was on every subway train and hip-hop was making noise. My lyrics reminisce about the days spent riding shotgun with my dad, who seemed to work incessantly as a NYC cabbie"


Musically they sound something between Body Count and Biohazard. Evil Dick is on the loose once again!

Old School Gems Series #6 - Taí um album que passei anos caçando uma cópia do LP e finalmente consegui com o dono do selo holandês Coalition Records ano passado. Banda formada em meados de 82 que após 2 EP's lançou este petardo. Fortemente influenciado pelos Bad Brains, foram um dos pioneiros do NYHC, perfomando shows ao lado de outros ícones mais conhecidos como Murphy's Law, Cro-Mags e Warzone.
As letras não são muito brilhantes e há muitos que preferem os 2 primeros EP's por soarem mais crús, baixe eles no blog Chainsaw Pop!

UPPERCUT - A Luta Continua

Listen: www.myspace.com/uppercuthardcore
Location: The Nederland
Release: I Scream Records, 2002 (out-of-print)



Influences: Wide Awake, Minor Threat, Kill Your Idols



"Old School Gems #5 - Dutch's Uppercut are also remarkable (not the be mistaken with NY's Uppercut), formed in 1995 they play some frenzy fast old school hardcore revival at its best. They released 3 albums and 1 EP or so, wich I will upload them one day as well, unfortunaly they called it quits last year. Interesting choice for this album's name by the way, in portuguese, meaning "the struggle continues" didnt figure out why though."
