SAY GOODBYE - Boston Area Straight Edge

Location: Southeastern Massachusetts
Release: Western Front, 2002-2005

Back to basics. SAY GOODBYE was the base for a bunch of other cool bands after its inception in 2002. If they were on a more consistent label maybe it would have helped get the word out, for they are a bit underrated. Their music was fast and without frills inspired by local legends in SSD, DYS (members lived near Providence and Boston) and Infest.

In 4 years they recorded 4 albums. The demo tape and first EP presents a more raw production, then comes the awesome full-lenght in 2004 followed by the final EP in 2005, all with songs clocking around the 1 minute mark spreading despise on humankind.

2002 - Demo
2002 - Anti-Social EP (Western Front Records)
2004 - S/T LP (Western Front Records)
2005 - Misanthropy EP (Western Front Records)

Say Goodbye's family tree:
Craig Arms (bass): did vocals in Waste Management and also played bass in Rampage and Mind Eraser. James Whittle (guitar): played guitar in Police Beat, Lovely Lads and drums on Waste Management's first EP. Eli Pizzuto (drums): played in R'n'R at some point and lately in the stoner-outfit Naam. Couldn't find any other related bands to Chris Browndog (vocals) tho.
