1989 was one hell of a year for GB, they did their first US tour, released “Start Today” on Revelation Records, really fine tuned their live shows and established themselves as a unique and important New York City Hardcore band. To me at least, it just seemed that they had really caught their stride and although I wasn’t at this Safari Club show in DC, I did see them at City Gardens in Trenton, NJ, around this era. I still look back at that City Gardens GB show in 1989 as one of my favorite hardcore shows and sets ever. Gorilla Biscuits and BOLD were one hell of a combination punch that night in Trenton, glad I got to witness it.
Again, this video here is from the Safari Club in Washington, DC, 1989. Anyone around and going to shows in 1989, undoubtedly heard about all the killer shows that were happening at the Safari Club. This video and this set certainly serve as a reminder to a special time, for a very special band. Hardcore Pride in ’89… -Tim DCXX
