One guy has on boxing gloves. His Power Trip shirt is tucked into some gym shorts. I think there’s a mouthguard in his mouth. This is a few days before Halloween, so the whole ensemble is presumably a costume. But it’s functional, too. Because this guy is just out here punching the shit out of […] For more, go to: Stereogum.com (Source)

This was supposed to be Drain’s year! The Santa Cruz hardcore livewires are notorious for their anarchic, ridiculous, fun-as-hell live shows, and they were going to be all over hardcore’s busy summer-festival circuit, stealing shows from bigger names. That’s almost certainly not going to happen now. But Drain have just come out with their debut […]
