Life's Blood- Live On WNYU

Free Image Hosting

Here is the Life's Blood set from when they played on WNYU.
Life's Blood were a great hardcore band from New York City. They formed in 1987. Their sound was hardcore, but they had smaller melodic elements on some songs and even oi! tinged parts from time to time. Another notable thing about their sound, was the monster guitar sound. The band knew how to write memorable songs and had their own sound. The lyrics were highly critical of things that were going on at the time. "This goes out to Ray Cappo, it's called Never Make A Change", somehow I don't think that went over too well at all.
Besides this set, there is a WFMU set, a 7", comp songs (on the 'Murders Among Us' comp and the 'New York Hardcore: Where The WIld Things Are' comp and the 'New Breed' tape comp) and a demo. It's all great and worth seeking out.
The band had singer problems. If you find live sets you can be treated to Jason (the singer from the 7") or Adam (the guitar player) singing. Also, I had notes that said a guy named Sean sings on the live tracks from the 'New Breed' comp (which I wish I had the whole set of.. those songs sound epic). But then I have seen him left out of other histories of the band. All variations of this band made some great music. I hope you enjoy it!
