murphy's law The Best of Times (coloured vinyl LP, £16.50)label: I Scream Records
Founded in Astoria, Queens in 1983, Murphy’s Law are huge part of the New York and American hardcore legacy. · Their albums, such as the self titled ‘Murphy’s Law’, and this 1989 follow up ‘Back With A Bong’, helped create the sound of New York hardcore. · In 2008 their legacy even lead to the use of the song ‘A Day In A Life’ (from the band’s debut) in the Liberty City hardcore radio station on the Rockstar video game ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’. · Murphy’s Law never abandoned the hardcore scene or their fans. During their extensive career singer Jimmy Gestapo has stayed true to his scene, earning him and the band a name as one of NYHC’s all time favourites. · CBGB’s Fest honoured Murphy’s Law, amongst others, with a NYHC Pioneers Plaque at A7 in New York City in October 2013.
