K-TOWN RAMP JAM
May 30th, 2014 by Tim
K-Town when it was K-Town…the first annual Ramp Jam 10/20/85….Highlights include the heat showing up and ordering Crippled Youth to stop playing three songs in on a neighborhood complaint…Ray Cappo winning both the street and half-pipe competitions (Rat Bones 90A wheels and a Skull Skates deck being the respective prizes)…a fledgling member of K-Town’s infamous and notorious “Gashouse Gang” stealing my Agnostic Front “Victim in Pain” Ratcage cassette from the boom-box we were using to provide a soundtrack to the proceedings – upon learning the identity of the thief, word was sent that the band themselves (AF) along with twenty skinheads would show up at his house to beat up both he and his father on their front lawn (the punishment fitting the crime) if the tape wasn’t returned….the cassette mysteriously made its’ way back to me in the halls of John Jay the next day….simpler times. – Matt Warnke (Crippled Youth / BOLD)
THE AUCTIONS OF GORILLA BISCUITS DRUMMER, LUKE ABBEY
February 4th, 2013 by Tim
Every once in awhile, we here at DCXX are given the opportunity to shed some extra light on situations that we consider worthy. When Gorilla Biscuits drummer, Luke Abbey, reached out to us looking for a little assistance on selling some records, we were more than happy to help. Aside from the fact that Luke’s been dealing with a pretty significant injury and could use the extra money, we knew some of our readers would be more than interested in what Luke has to offer.
In addition to helping Luke with his auctions, we also managed to coordinate an interview with him. Expect in the very near future, a major interview with the guy that delivered the beats for bands like Warzone, Gorilla Biscuits and a handful of other legendary New York City Hardcore bands. I think it’s safe to say, we have high hopes for this one.
Now check out what Luke has to say regarding his auctions. –Tim DCXX
A few days ago, I contacted Tim from Double Cross to ask if he would mind allowing me to post a collection of my own personal records and a few t-shirts on the Livewire message board in order to deal with my current and ensuing medical costs. He not only agreed to that, but was gracious enough to offer to run a full post on Double Cross in order to bring increased attention to my sale.
I’ve included absolutely every record I hope to sell – if it’s not listed, I don’t have it. All are in good playing condition and contain whatever lyric sheets were originally included – except where noted. They are all 1st pressings with a few exceptions which I’ve noted as well. The only drawback to any of these as far as I can tell, is that many of the jackets are distressed to some degree. That being said, nothing is in terrible condition, torn, or severely flawed. They’ve just got a bit of character. As for the t-shirts, they’ve been worn before but are neither torn nor altered, and are in wearable condition.
Here is the link to the ebay pages where the auctions can be found. If anyone has any additional questions or would like additional photos, I’ll do my best to oblige.
My seller name is yebba72.
Additionally, I will respond to as many questions or requests as possible at the following email:
However, as I mentioned above, please respect the fact that I’ve nothing further to sell than what’s listed, nor am I interested in any trades.
Auction Schedules and Photos
Here is the list, all first pressings except where noted:
So thanks to all of you who decide to bid on any of these records or t-shirts and lend some support in the process. And of course, my gratitude goes to Tim who has helped me out beyond measure.
Take care all,
JOIN THE FIGHT
