Director Drew Stone’s The New York Chronicles Film is an incredible journey thru the community and culture of the iconic New York hardcore scene that is still vibrant, relevant and going strong to this day. Not the typical history of a local music scene but so much more. Shot in an episodic formant the film contains over 60 interviews, never before seen footage, photos and a blazing soundtrack. Buy the ticket and take the ride!
I think they used us for this whole gentrification, we were the first one’s here, we had to deal with the gangs that were here. Nobody ever walked down to Ave’s B, C or D, nobody would ever go that way, but we did.
For me hardcore is in my soul and NYHC lives forever It’s not either or not you are a part of it or living vicariously thru it. The fact is I was there, I’ve seen it and it’s eternal.
I came up with all these words which became the New York crew song, the whole framework of this band that wasn’t going to let people do this to us anymore. We weren’t going to be doormats. Because we’re being cool and nice doesn’t give you the right to walk on us.
Graffiti was my first drug, it was like a high. I went to a place to bomb a train and anyone could attack me. I could get hit with a bat, I could get stabbed up or I could find someone and vick their shit or a cop could lock me up or beat me up then lock me up!
