My brother introduced me to this band when I was first getting into hardcore and it blew my mind that these guys grew up in San Ramon, California (a 5 minute drive from where we lived). Ever since then they've been one of the most influential bands in my life as well as one of their later projects, The Nerve Agents.
They didn't have the longest run compared to the bands they played with, but check them out anyway.
'Then and Now' 7"
'Holding On Strong' Demo
