JAY WITH TURNING POINT AT OLIVER J’S

Many of you may remember an interview that we did a few years back with Turning Point guitarist, Jay Laughlin. If you happened to miss that interview, use our search function in the upper right corner and be sure to check it out in our archives. Regardless, Jay’s been doing music consistently (Turning Point, Shadow Season, Godspeed, 1200, Lenola, Grand Fabric, Like A Fox and now JJL) and just this past February the 22nd, Jay stumbled upon hard times when his band’s studio/practice space burned to the ground. Jay and his band lost everything, nothing was salvaged.

So as a friend and out of respect and appreciation for what Jay has done musically, we felt it only made sense to reach out and help any way we could. If you follow the link below, Jay has set up a page for contributions. Jay has also broken down the entire story and what his goals are with the site he’s set up. Please check it out and help if possible. Thanks. -Tim DCXX

Check out Jay’s indiegogo page HERE and like we said, please contribute if possible.

GODSPEED AT THE CELLBLOCK IN BENSALEM, PA (02.15.92) | FULL SET IN HD

I’ve posted Godspeed clips before but never the entire Cellblock set. For many, this rare footage has remained unseen until recently. My hope is that Memorial Day footage (Memorial Day was Skip’s final project before his untimely death) is not far behind. —Ed DCXX

The difference between the seven inch and the LP was probably from the stuff we were listening to as well as just our own progression in musicianship.  I think everyone was getting a little bit better and wanting to challenge ourselves.  It was just a natural thing.  We were just four kids who got together after school and played.  There were never band meetings or anything to talk about what direction we wanted to go in.  But our sound was naturally developing.

I think Embrace and the DC stuff crept in.  Plus, I was also still into metal, so Metallica and Slayer was in there too.  I would sit and listen to Ride The Lightning and learn every riff in my bedroom rewinding the tape over and over again.  That’s where the acoustic guitar intro type stuff came from.
