Good Riddance is a punk rock band hailing from Santa Cruz, California. They formed in 1986 and after over twenty years, eight albums, and countless tours, played their farewell show in 2007. They played fast and explosive punk and hardcore music that was heavily influenced by the early American hardcore scene. The lyrical themes varied from political protests and analysis of the American society, to personal struggles and alienation. On occasion, the band had also been known to write slower, sometimes romantic songs.
One of Germany’s most talented folk- punk outfits, Across the Border, featuring an intense rhythm section, ATB derives most of their melody from accordion and fiddle with electric guitar tastefully complimenting their sound when needed.
SOJA- based out of Washington DC:
The music is rooted in reggae, and the branches are strong with influences of rock, alternative and hip-hop, creating for them a truly unique sound. This is conscious, original, and creative music with a message, most notable for their protest/war songs. Details of Get Wiser (DMV Records)
Co-produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by veteran sound engineer Jim Fox at LION and FOX Studios.
There are at least two bands with the name I Spy: 1: I Spy, originally from Regina, Saskatchewan (and originally called "Clump") made Winnipeg their home in 1994. For the next two years, they made themselves living legends in the hardcore scene until they called it a day in the summer of '96. (Todd the Rod now plays in Propagandhi.) Besides being one of the funnier cast of characters in existence to thrash audiences into the ground with their raw, full throttle recordings and ever rawer, fuller-throttle live shows...
