YDI
YDI
This band, whose name is pronounced "Why Die?", released one great single in 1983. The A Place In the Sun 7" was released by the band as Blood Bubble Records #1. Musically, this band had more in common with the tough skinhead sounds of Detroit and Boston than the lighthearted skatecore most of their Philly peers played. In songs like "Mad at the World," singer Jackal rips through lyrics like "Look into my eyes and see / I'm not normal you can believe / Savage fury, uncontrollable rage / I'm gonna put you in the grave." One interesting thing about YDI is that although playing a genre of music often associated with sketchy racial politics, both Jackal and drummer Howard were black. In "Categorized," the lead track on Side B, Jackal barks "Prejudiced eyes look upon me / Judge me by sight, take away my rights / Not knowing what I'm like or what I can do / I'm stuck with a label till the day I die." The band also dropped two fine tracks for the Philly compilation LP Get Off My Back with crazies like FOD, McRad, and Autistic Behavior.
Pure Hell
PURE HELL is "The World's First Original All Black Punk-Rock Band", established in Philadelphia, PA, in 1974, during the flashpoint of the punk culture in New York City, London and Los Angeles.

Amid the pioneers of the post garage, acid rock, glam-theatre era of the late 60's/early 70's, this band is considered the first of its kind, and comparable to the Sex Pistols, Dead Boys, The Germs, The MC 5 and Bad Brains, who recognize them as an influence. The release of a single in the UK- a cover of "These Boots are Made for Walking" w/B side, "No Rules" they landed in the top 5 on the UK charts as they toured Europe under the moniker, "The Hendrix Connection." However, their first album "NOISE ADDICTION," remained unreleased for 28 years & is now available in limited press (www.cdbaby.com/purehell). Pure Hell touts a second unreleased album produced in the mid 1990's by former members of L.A. Guns, Nine Inch Nails, and Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, entitled THE BLACK BOX.

Unfortunately the band endured the loss of founding member and drummer, Michael "SPIDER" Sanders, in 2002. They recently inducted Michael Mosley (She-Males, Sadistic Exploits). Most recent live performances include select venues and events on the east coast, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music Festival 2009, while contributing to countless book and magazine interviews, dating back to the late 1970's, as well as documentaries and films, most notably the recent Alan Parker movie, "Who Killed Nancy" and the book based on their first manager, "Curtis Knight: Living In The Shadow Of Jimi Hendrix."

2010 looks to be the year of yet another rebirth for this legendary, true classic punk band- with a growing roster of performance and appearance dates, possibly a new release & a book deal in the works that promises to present a story that tunnels way beneath the surface of music on the bend of social uproar to include the muddiest details of four young men jumping over the edge into a mosh of flambouyant characters & outrageous scenes one would have to have witnessed to fully accept. They were there with some of punk music culture's greatest. The story of PURE HELL, a first, an original... and it's not over...
Anti-Suburbans
Anti-Suburbans
Anti-Suburbians are hard hitting, fast & loud, high energy punk band from Folsom, PA (a.k.a "Delco"). Their music ranges from personal songs about their lives, people who have come & gone, puking, fighting, and being 100% devoted to the music. They don't abide by and one belief or philosophy. Each member brings something different to the table, making their sound one of a kind. Influenced by high energy punk, the Anti-Suburbians started officially in April of 2014, recording their first EP titled "One Way Generation" less than 2 months after forming and before they played their first show on June 17th, 2014. Prided on their musicianship & their athleticism towards performing, they constantly challenge themselves to go faster & play harder each and every show, leaving no room for bullshit.

We wanna go fast. We wanna play hard. We wanna go far.
