Rain On The Parade

"if slogans are required call us rain on the parade,remember us as the ones who boycott the charade" - Half Off



Out of all the late 90's youth crew explosion bands Rain On The Parade always seemed just that little to the left of it all while still being at ground zero and upping the kill count.Always wity and with plenty of right on the money observations such as "guest list" from the Full Speed Ahead 7" .Totally against any form of metal "3 chords" from the Body Bag 7".The guitarist played a Mosrite.Never seen such a cool guitar in any hardcore band ever (besides Al SSD's SG) and like Johnny Ramone said they do have a very unique sound.(Mosrites that is ... I don't think he ever heard ROTP).Not adverse to the 20 second thrashathon track, giving the middle finger to the scene kids.Personal reflection ... eating crow (how identifyable).2 Great 7"s though.Track em down if you can.

Possibly one of the greatest lines in any hardcore song ever:

"SO DRY YOUR EYES .... THERE'S NO CRYING IN HARDCORE"



Ronny Little also put pen to paper in the form of Penalty Box fanzine.A neat little A5 sized number with plenty of ATTITUDE.

Please re-up the Penalty Box d/l. I haven't seen one of those in almost 15 years.
