Ron Guardipee (Brotherhood/Resolution) gives us the lowdown on the PX/RAX interview…

“The interview took place at a RAX restaurant in Lynnwood, Washington. Youth Of Today stayed in Seattle at Greg’s house for a few days before continuing the “We’re Not [In This Alone]” Tour down the coast. Walter had broke[n] his leg in Tri-Cities a couple days before, so when they played with the John White version of Brotherhood in Oak Harbor, WA, Ray played bass and roadie Steve Reddy (later of Equal Vision) sang. They rehearsed at the Brotherhood practice space the day before the show. It was awesome. Me, Greg, Sammy & Porcell went to see DieHard the day after the show and had dinner at the RAX before the film. RAX had a raging all you can eat salad bar then.”

THE AUCTIONS OF GORILLA BISCUITS DRUMMER, LUKE ABBEY

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

Hi Folks,
My name is Luke Abbey and I’m the drummer for the band Gorilla Biscuits. Recently, while we were playing in Chicago at the Revelation Records 25th anniversary show, I tore my biceps tendon. I’d already had a number of shoulder and arm injuries I’d been trying to manage on my own, but during our second song it finally gave out and completely snapped, forcing me to go in for surgery the following week. I underwent several repairs and am now embarking on a lengthy rehabilitation process while also facing considerable expenses.

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:
elaytogo@gmail.com

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.

PORCELL WITH YOT IN ALBANY 1987 | PHOTO: CHRIS SCHNEIDER

In October of 1995, Porcell was preparing to move out of the Philadelphia temple and looking to sell a few random items he had laying around. One such item was the original reels to Skiz 4, otherwise known as the Wide Awake “CT Hardcore” 7″. My girlfriend (now wife) Traci and I decided to make the purchase and add the reels to our collection. Originally, with Porcell’s suggestion, we had thoughts of re-releasing the 7″ as an LP with the extra tracks that up until then had never been released. Like many plans and ideas that pop up, the LP never happened, but eventually by the late 90s, Jeff from Smorgasbord Records contacted me and asked to borrow the reels back so that they could use them for the discography that Smorgasbord was now going to do.

At some point, shortly after us buying the reels, Porcell scratched up a few Wide Awake photos and a couple of other random items, wrote the following little memories down, packed it up in a manilla envelope and sent it our way. I always thought this letter was great and really summed up some priceless memories.  —Tim DCXX

October 18, 1995

Straight edge revenge. Pile ons. Duane Some Records. Butt dives at CB’s. Hair bleach. X Swatches. Anthrax graffiti wars. Backside airs. “Flame still burns, suckers!” van. Pre-show workouts. Don Fury’s zebra couch. Crippled Youth sleep-overs. Pit police. Near beers at Walter’s. Superbowl of Hardcore. Schism “fold and bag” parties. Bad Brains with pic sleeve. 255 N. 8th St. Slap fights with Mike. Champion hooded sweatshirts. The L train. The wall of fame. Mosh parts. Richie at the Wah Wah Hut. “Together” sing-a-longs. Al Brown’s cool Dag Nasty shirt. “Storming The Nation” tour. Turning 20 at O’Mahony’s. Powered by Gibson. The Youth. The Crew.

This is about all that’s left in the memory banks. Funny that we can’t hold on, even if we want to. “This world’s like a dream, it’s not what it seems. We think it’s solid but it fades instead.”

Haribol,
Porcell

SHUTDOWN
May 16th, 2012 by Gordo

It was on “our table.” I guess that night some or all of the bands had a table, like a reserve type thing. God knows we didn’t get paid, or a soundcheck or anything. I remember Chris Williamson basically saying we had to play immediately or we couldn’t play, hence the drums were totally fucked up, we had no time to set up. Click click click, we started…Alex tried to jump off the drum riser, skidded across and fell on his ass, it was a train wreck but fun.
