Reason for forming:
To take Rock and Roll back to square one. Bands be trying SO DAMN HARD to sound like Cro-Mags but ‘not racist’ and D.R.I. but ‘serious’. And frankly, ever since Supercharger kicked the bucket music hasn’t been dumb or bad enough.

What are your lyrics about?
The Primeval & Ancient STRUGGLE of EXISTENCE

How would you describe your sound?
REAL, REAL BAD. 2-3 chords per song – I dare you to count. 

What’s in the future for this band?
D. Baggy left for warmer pastures, as did Yrrap. Couch keeps the dream alive with a crew of 7 now known as “Thee Cavemyn*” . But, D. Baggy is busy assmbling the Philthadelphia chapter of The Cavemen to wage war against the Boston chapter.

Band name:
COMMANDO commando-tape-cover

Date & location formed:
November, 2015, Rochester, NY.

Russ and Brandon (who play in a metallic hardcore band OBSESSOR) wanted to start a late 70s style punk band for over a year, and Alex (ex-Skate Korpse) had moved back into Rochester after living in New Orleans for a few years. It’s a perfect line up and the rest is history.

What are your lyrics about?
Struggle, triumph, snow.

Dark, energetic punk with some melody. Mainly influenced by 70s punk, and 80s hardcore to an extent.

Early US hardcore like The Germs, Jerry’s Kids and SSD. Hardcore punk for hardcore punks.

mission-creep-band-logoBand name:
MISSION CREEP

Date & location formed:
Washington, DC in winter of 2015.

The exorcising/ exercising of demons personal and otherwise.

Spooky/ scary. Like if Christian Death, The Chameleons and Killed by Deathrock Volume 1 all worked at the same Spirit Halloween store.
