Biography

Wikipedia

The Casualties are an American street punk band which was formed in New York City in 1990. It was formed by vocalist Jorge Herrera, Hank (guitar), Colin Wolf (vocals), Mark Yoshitomi (bass) and Yureesh Hooker (drums). Hank’s last name of several is unknown. Jorge Herrera is the only remaining member of the originals. During the early years of the band, the members were very fluid.

Early years

The Casualties were formed in 1990, with original members Jorge Herrera (vocals) Hank (guitar), Colin Wolf (vocals), Mark Yoshitomi (bass) and Yureesh Hooker (drums). The members aimed to return to what they viewed as the “golden era” of street punk, embodied by bands such as The Exploited and Charged GBH which they believed had disappeared by 1985.[3] During the early years, the lineup was fluid, with several changes. That first year, Colin stepped out for several months to finish his education while Rachel, TheRivits’ singer, took his place.[3]
In 1991, Hank left the band, to be replaced by Fred (last name unknown) on guitar. Colin, Jorge, Yureesh, Hank and Mark put together a demo, titled Political Sin, for the Benefit for Beer compilation.[4] After making this recording, Fred left to go to school and Steve, from Distraught, fills in for a short time, until Fred returns to the band full-time. The 4 song EP, 40 Oz. Casualty was recorded at the end of 1991, and self-released.[3] 1992 saw the band touring and building up a fan base in NYC.

    the overwhelming majority of rape accusations are true. if you side with the rapist over the accuser because shitty music is more important to you than sexual assault, you're a bad person and you should feel bad. kthxbye. [2]

    When I was in high school a girl lied about being raped. She convinced one of the students at our school to get a gun and take justice into his own hands. He did, and he killed the boy the girl had accused of raping her. Shortly after, it was revealed that the boy who was murdered hadn't raped the girl, and that the reason she'd accused him was due to her own jealousy when the murdered boy was involved with another female. An innocent person died because a girl lied. Some women lie. I know that's difficult for some people to believe but it happens. There's also lots of crazy people out there. Don't discount all the possible scenarios. This is why we have due process. People who think there's no such thing as being falsely accused of rape: what would you do if you were falsely accused?
