Biography

One Life Crew (OLC) was a straight edge hardcore band. They originally formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1994. Though the band has had numerous members, the most notable line-up consisted of “Mean” Steve Murad (Vocals), Blaze Tishko (guitar), John “Lockjaw” Tole (bass), and Anthony “Chubby Fresh” Pines (drums). The band formed out of the ashes of Murad’s former bands Confront, and Mean Streak.

After releasing a series of demo tapes, the band was picked up by Victory Records and released their debut LP Crime Ridden Society on the label. The track Our Fight, which appears on Crime Ridden Society and proclaims an anti-racism message, was originally performed by Confront. Ironically, OLC has been accused by many as being a racist band, due in no small part to the lyrics of the track Pure Disgust, which reflect a right wing stance on immigration issues. OLC, along with Victory, tried to combat their racist image by releasing One Life Crew t-shirts with the lyrics to Our Fight printed on the back, and included a post card along with the vinyl version of the album that likened the song to Agnostic Front’s Pubic Assistance.

The band was dropped from Victory Records after a fight broke out during their set at the 1996 Cleveland Hardcore Festival.
