For those with a love of NYHC, the name Leeway is one you already know. Love em or hate em for their unique blend of hardcore, metal, thrash and more, there is no denying that they were one of the NY bands who broke down barriers and appealed to fans of so many different genres. Their front man Eddie was a madman. Flying into the crowd, climbing the rafters and going 100 MPH at all times. I was lucky enough to see them a few times back in the 80’s and it was always a wild show.
Eddie is back with a new project, The Eddie Leeway Show, and we were lucky enough to sit down with him to discuss it, Leeway’s history, his other band Truth and Rights, as well as Eddie’s life then and now. This is a long one so get comfortable and listen to Eddie’s tale.
One of the bands I never thought I’d be interviewing would be Judge.
This is another special interview for me and I was stoked when Mike said he’d be up for doing it.
Thanks to Aga Hairesis and Jeff Lasich for some of the photography.
And Adam Lentz at Rev For some of the flyer scans.
something I never thought would happen in this zine. When checking out Ebay one night I came across someone selling an unused Warzone interview with Raybeez that was done for an old zine that never got published. I knew I had to get my hands on it. Sometimes things unfold in my favor and I won the auction. Done in a more standard style than most interviews I do, I am still honored to present you with what I would assume is the FINAL Warzone interview. Done on March 15, 1996 and sitting waiting for this moment. I present you with this piece of Hardcore history. A huge thanks to Vinnie Value and Tim Daley for providing some great pictures to go along with it.
Liberty Is a new NYHC band comprised of members of Free At Last,Burst Of Rage,Title Fight and more.
I thought they were defiantly going to be a band to watch out for in the future.
So I sent a few questions over to Ned last night to hear more about the band.
I caught up with Chris Daily & Jeff Terranova of Smorgasbord Fanzine/Records and talked to them about some new things in the works and old… but tried not to repeat a lot of the stuff that has already been documented.
You might also be aware that Jeff played bass for legendary NY Straight Edge Hardcore band Up Front.

108, which is definitly one of my all-time favorite bands, will return this year for selected shows in the US. I don’t live in the US, I certainly won’t be there in May 2016 but I definitly can’t wait to see footages or full sets on the Internet. That’s practically what I do since they played Ieper Fest in 2009, back when I was studying sociology at Uni, had no money to travel (or even buy tons of records like today). When they told me they were ok to answer to few questions, I had to choose the more obvious questions within the entire battlefield of interrogations I’ve always had concerning this, in my opinion, legendary band.
Here is a link to an interview The Heat Fanzine did with 108 in 2007, this article is pretty good, the questions were a solid basis to my personal will to ask questions to Robert Fish/Rajasara Dasa: there
Another great record that carries a passed out name. Even though I never met nor knew Skip, but I got to say that TURNING POINT, GODSPEED and the other bands that he sung in are huge influences for me, and for this reason, I want to dedicate this issue to his memory.
It was hard to pick something from their discography, their sound evolved a lot in a short period of time, and each record has something special. I even considered reviewing the discography released on Jade Tree to get through everything this band has brought to me, and obviously, as they helped shaping the 90’s hardcore sound.
But I’m still skeptical about that BULLDOZE review I did, and the point of those reviews are not to speak about how a band was crucial, but which of their records struck me the most, and in a sens of coherence, I finally picked up this LP. One of the first argument is that it was released on New Age Records, no need to extend myself on this point, but it’s already meaningful and one day, maybe you’ll see an article about New Age Records here or somewhere else.
