I’ve never been the most talented musician in the bands I’ve been in. I haven’t even always been the best guitar player when I was the only one playing guitar in bands I started. I’ve always tried to make up for it by being on time, having decent reliable equipment, and doing art for whatever I was doing when the inspiration hit me.
Ed Crooks has been heavily involved in the hardcore scene for 20+ years. He started talking to bands in the early 00’s, with a love for all the old zines like Schisim, Boiling Point, Good and Plenty etc, but he only started putting stuff together after moving to Sweden in 2013.
