1989? Great venue where I met many of my Albany HC friends. Still sorta think later underdog sucked. American Standard seemed to play in the area once a month. Glee Club dudes were like 16 years young.

Great gig..if I recall correctly mike judge was playing drums for YOT at this gig… Pretty savage. Both YOT and token entry played Albany so frequently back then that they were almost local bands. I can recall seeing homeless people wearing token entry t shirts in Albany back in the day.

This happened in NJ. I recall we got stuck in traffic, and got there late. The big surprise of this show was that a Japanese band called Hellchild got on the gig. It was a real rarity to see bands from Japan back then, so this was a treat. I recall selling Jon Chang from Discordance Axis a Napalm death flexi. Fun stuff…

Great gig that took place in Albany New York in the 90’s. I can’t recall our set, but What I recall about this gig most was that Hail Mary were on one of their many line up changes. This one was the weirdest. We jokingly referred to it as Horse Mary due to the guitarist and bassist joining Hail Mary from a Albany band called Horse Water. I think this was their only show with this line up. I also recall Martin from Crudos telling me that the last gig they played prior to Albany, the promoter asked them if Mexican food was ok for them to eat. The promoter later showed up with Taco Bell.
These are the weird things I remember from hc shows.
First track off the ROMPER ROOM REJECTS ‘87 demo featuring a 20 year old Nate Wilson on vocals. The demo was recorded live at 924 Gilman Street for $20. According to Nate, during their first two years of Gilman’s existence, bands could come in during the day, set up on stage and record live without overdubs, then leave with a demo tape. ROMPER ROOM REJECTS existed from ‘86-‘88. ”Skate or die for the rest of my life, even if I have three kids and a wife!”
my friends have the best bands
EPISODE 96: MARK McCOY
There’s going to be a “Youth Attack" when a couple of dudes in their mid 30’s get together very far from Tony Victory’s house to kibitz with the awesome Mark McCoy about some of the lowlights from his time “doin’ vox” in seminal bands like Charles Bronson and Das Oath (not to mention Failures and Holy Molar). Scary European squats, coping with onstage injuries, playing with bandmates you’ve never met, being influenced by MAD Magazine, and performing in shorts are just a few of the pathways we’ll go down. Bundles of buttflaps on this week’s WORST GIG EVER!

Finally after years of trying to track this record down again, I got it in the mail from some dude from Greece. This record has definitely traveled around 10,000 miles in its existence. It’s back home in the good ‘ol US of A.
