undertow Everything (double LP, £18.95)label: Indecision Records
UNDERTOW can be considered one of the founding fathers of the straight edge scene in Seattle. At a time when grunge was in, these boys made their own noise and laid the tracks that every hardcore band in Washington has followed since. Untainted, unspoiled and uncompromised, the way hardcore was, and still is, supposed to be played. Getting their start in 1990, the band toured the States several times as well as Europe in 1995 right before they decided to call it quits. This collection of tracks covers everything they recorded from 1992 to 1994 while John Pettibone was singing for the band. Members went on to play in HIMSA, PLAYING ENEMY, KISS IT GOODBYE, SHIFT, ENSIGN and TEN YARD FIGHT, to name a few.
