Citizens Arrest- Live On WNYU

Here is the great Citizens Arrest show from WNYU. There are eight songs.
Citizens Arrest was a hardcore band from New York City in the last 80's and early 90's. Besides this, there is a demo, 7" and an LP. The band broke up right before the LP was released. The band was speedier than most and combined some angry vocals. I see lots of crust dudes and powerviolence dudes with CXA shirts and patched but Citizens Arrest was never played either of those styles. The speed and fury was there, but they had a NYHC edge, imo, and it all came together into a wonderful band.
Citizens Arrest side note: if you ever see Friday The 13th part 8, there is a scene where Jason walks up to three punk guys hanging out, well the one with the chain is the singer of Citizens Arrest!
