The Orange County punk project D.I. formed in 1982 by vocalist Casey Royer while his former band Adolescents was temporarily on hiatus. The group saw some success reach its peak in the mid and late 1980's, and their second album, "Horse Bites, Dog Cries" is now considered a hardcore punk classic. Despite going on hiatus between albums, the band has continued to be active.


Due to the fact that there is not much to do in Laramie, WY, Redbush has spent quite some time dedicated to the almighty riff. With members that have been writing music since the early 2000's, minds have met, inspiration has swelled, vast amounts of booze has been drank, all leading up to the composition of some killer songs. Influenced by rock n' roll legends Nomeansno, The Melvins, FEAR and The Who, Redbush has developed a unique sound reminiscent of a time when music didn't suck. "Aerosmith has sex appeal, Boston has sex appeal, Redbush DOES NOT have sex appeal" - Brad Williamson(professional carpet installer)

Before the ideas of "pop" and "punk" were grafted in unholy union, there were bands that didn't know there was ever a difference. Add the Hacks to that list. Influenced by the gruff, Oi!-tinged punk of Channel 3 or Sham 69 and the almost conceptual sloppiness of Crimpshrine (whose "Fucked Up Kid" is covered here), East Colfax Avenue flies its tattered old-school flag with drunken pride. From the poignant social realism of "Drank the Rent" to the forced-march sing-along of "Skate Song," the Hacks deliver us from the insidious clutches of modern punk -- like we were scared in the first place. -Jason Heller
