Interview with Chris Logan from CHOKEHOLD


Ever been so intrigued or moved by something that you couldn’t get it out of your head? That’s pretty much how Canadian Hardcore band Chokehold has been for me since the age of 15. I managed to get in touch with mouthpiece Chris Logan to get a bit of info and a few words on his views of the band some 17 years after their final performance in New Bedford, Ma in 1996. So read away, share away, and stay angry. 


“Think. Question it.” These 3 words are very good advice when approaching difficult and highly subjective social issues that involve rigorous mental processing. To come up with a logical conclusion that fits into one’s personal agenda, a person must weigh many different viewpoints, factual or otherwise, to come up with a stance that makes the most sense for their environment.

Interview with Mike Couls and Karl Buechner from Vehement Serenade; Playing East Coast Tsunami Fest

What do you get when you put members of Earth Crisis, Cro-Mags, Sworn Enemy, Skarhead, Cold As Life, and Sub Zero in a room together? Though it may sound like a college level lecture series on the history of NY Hardcore, it’s actually Vehement Serenade. As far as super-groups go, you’d be hard pressed to find this much talent in one musical outfit, but it’s here, and you should probably wear a helmet when you see them live.
