It's been quite a while since I've done a Podcast Episode, life has just been way too busy. Fret not. I have almost two weeks of holidays after Xmas, and WGK#3 will be out during that time if not before. In the meantime, enjoy a collection of some fairly hard to come by stuff from Seattle's legendary Undertow. The "Edge Of Quarrel" which is a bootleg CD by Germany's Lost & Found Records, containing their first demo before John switched from bass to vocals, the Resolution split 7", a track from the "Words To Live By" Comp, and a previously unreleased song. Basically, everything else that wasn't included on the Everything CD. Also in this collection are the two bonus songs from the CD version of the Control 7". "Taken" and "Cedar" which were previously also included on the "At Both Ends" LP, but the two versions here, are alternate recordings. There was no insert in the CD, so I can't tell if they were recorded during the Control sessions, or were actually demo's recorded before the EP. Regardless, they are both rad. Next is the 1994 live on the air set for "On The Edge" Radio show out of New Jersey, which was first posted by our friends Justin and Chip at the awesome x Stuck In The Past x Blog. Lastly is a live set from their 2009 reunion show in San Diego, CA, that has some pretty good sound. Enjoy! XXX

Capone - What We've Shared 7" 1995

                                    Capone - What We've Shared 7" Heartfirst Records 1995

  Capone were a Vancouver Hardcore band from the mid/late 1990s. Comprised of Johnny Franco (Vocals) and his cousins John and Joe Franco (Guitar and Drums), Jay David (Bass) and Ryan Howlett (Guitar). They were very influenced by Strain in their sound, and the comparisons were apparent due to both Johnny's vocal style and the fact that John also wrote and played guitar in Strain as well.  I don't remember anyone complaining, and I sure as hell wasn't. Strain were and still are one of my favorite bands, and Capone definitely had the same qualities that Strain did, as well as a few more old school sounding riffs to them as well at times.   Regardless, Capone were great live and on record. Heavy, crushing, fast and dark sounding. Their 7" brings back awesome memories of that time period.  Strain, Sparkmarker, Brand New Unit, Minority, Dissent, Three X Words, Plains Of Abraham... Packed shows at Crosstown Traffic, The Loft, Hastings Community Centre and Elgin Hall in White Rock. That '95 Era is peronally my favorite time in Vancouver Hardcore history, and Capone were most definitely part of the reason.       Download the 7" below.  Hit play. Bedroom Mosh or just sit back and enjoy one of Vancouver Hardcore's heaviest HC bands ever!
