DAMAGE II - Broken Bloodlines

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.
Bass player Dave Sausage also started his own label few years later, SIX FEET UNDER RECORDS.

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 bangin' like a bobble head toy.


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)!
