FPS Are back with a new record North Atlantic on React Records with as much energy, heart and power as ever after the untimley passing of singer and Hardcore legend Peter Amdam. Being a friend of the band and having met the guys in Oslo not long after peter’s passing I couldn’t imagine id ever be writing about a new record. But its here and its incredible, what follows is a watts app conversation me and Espen had over a couple of weeks on and off when we had time away from work, Almost totally unedited.
It’s weird how the only other live report I did was for a gone band. And this one is certainly outdated, but I wasn’t sure if I had to do it or not. But honestly, for all the good reasons I had not to do it, I only needed a better one to finally right it down.
There’s not many shows I kept clear memories of, as I’m going to a lot of them, but all of those I can remember as I just saw it are all Hardcore Punk shows. Among them you got HAVE HEART farewell tour, CATHARSIS reunion at Fluff Fest, BURN in London or JUSTICE & TRUE COLORS in Antwerp (and believe this one will remain as it was a pain in the ass to get there and to comeback.), and some more, but just so you can get how I got a kink for gone bands/farewell shows.
Not going to post a bunch of stuff its all been said already.
But I wanted to say that Peter Amdam and his bands have been a great inspiration for me and I’m sure we would all agree in the Hardcore scene in general.
Looks like we will have to save our planned hang out in the next life dude take it easy on your journey bro.
