Biography

Citizens Arrest was a band from New York, USA that existed from 1988-1990. Their music catalog consists of some comp tracks, an EP (A Light In the Darkness) followed by an LP (colossus) released shortly after the group had disbanded. According to the former members, a discography CD is said be be coming out soon. The band consisted of Daryl Kahan on vocals, Janis Cakars on guitar, Joseph Martin on bass, and Patrick Winter on drums. Influences by bands like Siege, Negative FX, and Soa, Citizens Arrest played numerous times despite being around for only a couple years. Their music was a mix of hardcore bordering on complimented by gruff vocals that made them sound like they were a Japanese band like S.O.B. or Gauze.
Considered one of the seminal bands of the late 80’s N.Y. hardcore scene, many wonder what might have been if internal band conflicts wouldn’t have torn the band apart so early.Members went on to play in Taste of Fear, HellNo, Moses, One Sided War. and Forced Expression.
