Our Turn - Catch Your Breath/Demo/Cali Thrash tracks/Embrace cover

Despite talking tons of shit on Mediafire, I used it to Upload Our Turn stuff for Hunter. Out Turn is one of the best Hardcore bands period. This has the EP, the demo, the Embrace cover (hidden track) and their comp tracks.

Edit: this doesn’t have the whole demo on it, just the tracks on the CD version of Catch Your Breath.

Enjoy: http://www.mediafire.com/?dxrfdadquaa226o

EDIT: The only link that works is anymore is the Inside link. Fuck mediafire. Not allowing me to share out of print music by inactive bands on mostly defunct/inactive labels because it’s available on Amazon, where zero dollars go to the folks who released and/or created the music is bullshit.

Some new (and one old) downloads. I uploaded this stuff for friends, and thought I’d share here as well.

Blood Red - Discography Re-Up (ex-Silent Majority, Ex-Inside, Pre-Capital)

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?67e1cwq2g2mgqsh

Inside - (Pre-Blood Red, Pre-Dearly Departed, Long Island Emo, think Mineral/Christie Front Drive, but better)

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?z5fj6359wgcqgtz

Handsome - Full Length + 2 EPs (Members of Quicksand, Helmet, Jets to Brazil, Shelter, Insight, Iceburn, Cro-Mags, Beyond, Bold etc…, late 90’s Hardcore/rock, Quicksand-esque)

This is one of my favorite pictures of myself at a show. The show itself was nothing special. In some ways it actually kind of sucked, I had to yell at a kid for not showing basic respect to those around him, a friend of mine nearly got in a fight, and there was a ton of generally obnoxious people there. However, this picture sums up everything I love about Hardcore. I’m on the right sharing a laugh with Hunter while Birdbrain (a band I’d never heard of before that night) is raging away. Sometimes Hardcore doesn’t need to be profound. Sometimes it really is just as simple as hanging out with your friends and watching a band that makes it special.

RIP Sarah Kirsch. Although I did not know her personally, I can think of very few people who are as well represented on my record shelves, or who consistently created inspiring and incredible music for such a long time.

This is my all time favorite office dog. He’s moving at the end of the week though. I love that I have a dog friendly workplace.
