JELLO BIAFRA & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine

Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine played Lee’s Palace to a full house. It was a mix of new songs and quite a few Dead Kennedys’ songs. Jello definitely had a great time, pantomiming along to the songs just like the old days.

Representing Barrie hardcore, Demolitioncame into CIUT 89.5 FM’s Studio 3 to record a heavy live session. They definitely wear their NYC hardcore influences tatooed on their arms.

Etobicoke’s hardcore foursome Direct Approach recorded a live session at Studio 3 for Equilizing X Distort, CIUT 89.5 FM. They take a slightly different approach as two members switch vocal duties and instruments on different songs, but still manage to get a consistent sound.
