Something In The Water.

The title of this blog was inspired by conversations that I've had with people from Memphis and even people from other parts of the world that would describe the sounds of southern punk and hardcore. When ever I listen to a band like Copout, or His Hero Is Gone, that conversation comes up.

This blog is dedicated to all bands from Little Rock and Memphis (although all other bands from the south maybe discussed). In my humble opinion Little Rock and Memphis hardcore/punk bands have rarely been talked about or seen. If you are in one of the bands and have stories or pictures to add let me know. A lot of the music that is posted is out of print, but if you ever find it buy it. I do not make any money off of this, this is to turn people on to stuff that has never really gotten much recognition. If you are in one of the bands and have a problem with your stuff being up here let me know and I will remove it

Raid was Memphis' straight-edge/hardline band. Formed from the ashes of One Way  these guys were at the forefront of the hard line vegan life style. The band recorded a demo in 1989 that came out on Hardline records (Vegan Reich's label). The music as well as their beliefs were uncompromising and they were never afraid to show it. The band like the rest of that scene dissolved after moving away from the hardline stance. The recording of this record was originally released as Above The Law on Hardline Records in 1994. Victory re-released the record as Hands Off The Animals in 1995. Please feel free to share stories or corrections (if there are any).
