Back in the days: Krutch road stories

Taken from an old interview with Richie Krutch back from 2002:

Any Interesting Road Stories From Any Of The Bands?

HAHA, yea a lot, but here is one of my favorites...The first night we played Germany, our shit was stolen, I am talking CASH, cameras, jackets. So we were like fuck it, we split up, some went up the street, some went down the street, next thing we know, our man Pepi is walking towards up dragging this German skinhead dood, he found the guy with all our stuff. So we torture him, make him take us back to his house, bash in the door, all that. Anyway, after leaving him near death, our drummer Shawn turns on his video cam of the show that night, It turns out the kid that stole the camera taped himself jerking off in the alley near the club... we were laughing like crazy.

Respect the bad guy

Krutch breaking down the science of being tough:


Good question, we became a "Tough Guy" band in 96', before that we where only in a triple A tough guy league....But in 96 we beat up the required amount to turn "PRO Tough Guy band"...I believe the number was 666..We are very very proud of our "TOUGH GUY BAND" Status, originally we where going to be a "Youth Crew" band, but we where not skinny enough..then we decided to try "Emo", but noone in the band wore glasses, plus sweaters make me itch..The whole Vegan thing woulda been great for us, except for the fact that we love to torture animals and stuff, so eventually we tried this "Tough Guy" style out, and it's workin' out O.K.

Classic: As One - We gotta know-Intro

I am a sucker for everything KDS crew related. Actually, I am sucker for everything Stormcore related, but since they were repping their crew so hard I felt it's important to maintain a bigger picture. Anyway, As One was a side project with members of Stromcore and Slamface. This vid is supposedly from band's last gig in 1998. If you like it, check out this video as well for music.

Hardcore gem: 25 ta Life featuring Stephen (Kickback)

This video is pretty insane, if you haven't seen it already check it out above. 25 ta Life start playing Short Fuse and all of a sudden Stephen jumps in and totally kills it. Sick! Paris, filthy Paris, 2004.

Hardcore Gem: Stormcore - 'Last Warning' (Agnostic Front)

Stormcore playing 'Last Warning' with Matt Henderson and Freddy Cricien. Thanks to KDS Legacy for posting this.
