Crashed Out legen in wenigen Tagen ihren neuesten Output namens Against All Odds über Demons Run Amok Entertainment vor.
Wir sprachen anlässlich des bevorstehenden Releases mit Frontmann Chris Wright über seine Roots und wie er zur Musik und Szene gekommen ist.
AFL: Do you remember the first hardcore / punk show you went to? Is the club still open today?
Chris: Sadly the place got knocked down many years ago, It was called The Cellers it was ayouth club and a local band called ‚Royal Dolls‘ played they were terrible h ha but we all still jumped about to the tunes like lunitics! Great fun that would have been about 1981.
AFL: What is your all-time favorite club or location?
Chris: The Mayfair in Newcastle Upon Tyne, again that was knocked down many years ago I saw bands such as Motorhead, SLF, The Damned, The Buzzcocks etc etc play at that place. But my favorite venue that I have played with Crashed Out is probably Trillians Rock bar in the Heart of Newcastle.
AFL: Do you remember the first hardcore / punk record you got?
Chris: Sex Pistols’ Holidays in the Sun.
