Yes, you can see me in the lower left of this video getting aggro with Hatebreed in my old white Blitz shirt. I REALLY loved that shirt, but after this show, it had so many boot and sneaker prints on it that wouldn't wash off. I tried to dye it gray, but then it just looked like a GRAY shirt with shoe prints all over it.
|The author, part of the mayhem|
This set was just a part of what destroyed my beloved Blitz shirt. The true set of the night was the Slugfest reunion. Slugfest were near and dear to my heart my senior year of high school (1991-92) and I saw them many times from 91-93. Hell, there's even a picture of me getting kicked in the face in their 1992 demo.
|Lower Right- OUCH!|
|Slugfest didn't make the flyer for some reason.|
Sadly the show on Monday 8/30/93 was their last. I'm not sure why the band fell apart, though I heard at the time it was due to Tim joining Snapcase, who knows? All I know is by the point, I loved Slugfest and couldn't stand Snapcase, so I was pretty bummed.
But, there was unfinished business. In 1996, Slugfest recorded 4 songs written before their break up and paired them with the 7" for a CD on initial records, who was now home to Scott's then current band, Despair. It stoked the flames, that's for sure and in April 1997, Slugfest did their reunion, we all went and enjoyed, and my poor blitz shirt suffered.
Rest in Peace you incredible shirt and Rest in Peace Slugfest.
