District 9- Live On WNYU

Free Image Hosting

Here is the District 9 set from when they played on WNYU in 1995.
Normally, I hate 90's NYHC, but this is an exception. This band is great. Some of the songs have the slow chunky parts that I don't like, but they pull it off because they also have a lot of fast parts that sound like 80's NYHC. The best part of the songs are the 'bust' mosh parts with the super catchy drumming, like on the intro that Supertouch played when they were on WNYU. So energetic and exciting.
There isn't anything particularly funny or noteworthy said between the songs, like on some other WNYU sets, but its slightly amusing how he catches himself every time he is about to swear. The music is what is important here, and these songs kill. The high point here is the song 'Stand Out', with the duel vocals and the Maximum Penalty-esque ending.
District 9 came from the remains of another NYHC band, Close Call, not to be confused with the late 90's Boston Hardcore band of the same name.
Enjoy the music!
