For the first half of the tour, we played with Gorilla Biscuits and then Judge for the second half, and you could tell Porcell was in between things, Youth of Today was playing their last show on this tour. Matt and I were about to start college. Drew was moving to NYC with Ritchie, there was just a sense of closure or transition with things ending and new things happening.

Judge and Youth of Today represented tradition as much as Inside Out, Quicksand, Burn, and the pleasant anomaly, Supertouch loosened the knots and rewired things. Burn specifically brought a unique blend of fire and fusion, pounding the pavement like a demo-era Cro-Mags and locking into bouncy beats and drifts often in the same song.

Recorded in April 1990 at Don Fury’s Demo Demo Studios in New York City and released the same year, Quicksand’s debut 7” immediately made an impression to fans of Gorilla Biscuits, Revelation Records, and beyond. Speaking of beyond, the line up on the EP featured Alan Cage on drums, Tom "TC3" Capone on guitar, Sergio Vega (Absolution and the underrated Collapse) on bass, and Walter Schreifels (The entire NYHC scene) on guitar and vox.
