Effing AWESOME band. Listened to these guy's since a freshmen in HS (1984). Saw them many times. Blaine was a nutty bastard on stage. Love their stuff still to this day. Influenced my hardcore/crossover band B.H.T / Anxiety.
heh, getting a little bit over-excited (and tired as well other workday...), so made some writing mitstakes in the end of my other Shout - this is how it should have been:
...the moust nearest and dearest to me Still. Just listen those early Accused rec´s And the ones by six bands mentioned on this page as Similar to Acc. and you should see and understand why!!
Specially their stuff until ...Ever told -record is REALLY great, been listening to it more than 20 years now and will never were tired of it, SO good and wönder full!!! Also the gig I saw them playing live 1989 in Toronto (at basement Apocalypse Club) is still among 10 best concerts I have ever seen, even there has been hundreds and hundreds other great ones after that Show. Hard to say were they The best crossover-band of them all (for me), but definitely in Top-3 at least.. Uuh, I like and love so many other kinds of music as well, but that sound of late 1980´s hardcore-metal crossover is the must nearest and dearest to me Still. Just listen those early Accused rec´s And the one by for ex. by six bands mentioned on this band as Similar to Acc. and you should see and understand why!! <3 <3 <3
