I’ve been hearing about Santos Party House for a while now but had never gotten a chance to catch a show there. Hearing that old friends and New York Hardcore Veterans Our Gang were playing with Agnostic Front finally gave the chance to. Our Gang weren’t one of the huge names on the scene back in the 80’s but they were certainly one of the best. Members went on to play with bands such as Born Against, Citizens Arrest, Hell No and Sleeper/Serpico. More than Twenty years after it’s initial release their “Uprising” Demo has finally made it’s way to vinyl. Pick up a couple of copies. Our Gang “Uprising” LP
I wanted to start the month of September off right by wishing my long time friend Mo Vega a very Happy Birthday. Growing up in the same neighborhood. Sharing a lot of the same experiences. Starting bands and fanzines around the same time and running around with some crazy (but good) friends. I recently reconnected with Mo after twenty years. It felt as if not a day had passed. Theses days he keeps himself busy with his band Accidental Tribe, producing, engineering and of course his graphic design. I was always lucky to be surrounded by a lot of creative, artistic people. Mo definitley falls into that file. Happy Birthday bro.
