RYAN BLAND OF NYC'S ACHE SHARES WITH US SOME GREAT STORIES FROM DAYS GONE BY:
"It all turned into a full riot with hundreds of people fighting and breaking things everywhere. That's when someone shot a gun and hundreds of people went running for their lives. Cops moved in and started beating more people. Two cops grabbed me and escorted me out of the park because I still had a mic."

DOWNLOAD "THE UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO RARE & UNHEARD NYHC" PDF NOW!
The Unofficial Guide To Rare & Unheard NYHC is a 16 page PDF file/zine that you can download and check out now from Cooch and CC. These guys really know their shit on old NYHC releases (and rumors) that never happened or were so obscure they practically didn’t exist! Some of the albums and demos that they mention were rumored to have been recorded but never saw the light of day for whatever reason making for even a bigger “urban myth” type of deal. Items mentioned include Token Entry’s “Ready Or Not Here We Come” 7” was supposed to be a 10 song 12” full length LP on Rat Cage Records, A Gorilla Biscuits LP titled “The Pizza” LP, a Warzone LP with Tommy Rat (Trip 6, Rejuvenate) on vocals and Raybeez on drums, an Icemen LP, and an Underdog demo with Carl The Mosher (RIP) singing among a bunch of others. The writers choose their words carefully and are clear when they point out that some of these releases may or may not exist. The idea that some of these recordings may still be buried in someone’s basement or attic and could one day be released makes the urban myth thing even greater.
