CIDER ARE BRITISH FROM CLEVELAND

Cider may dawn the faux British accents but make no mistake about it, they are very Cleveland. The first time I saw Cider was in Youngstown, Ohio, at Play Fast or Die Fest. Their set was way longer than the allotted slot, nobody was into it, and then they got into a confrontation with members of Crowd Deterrent. I still have no clue exactly what went on between those two groups but it all seemed pretty funny and obnoxious.

Cider has been playing on and off since the 90s and shares members with other bands such as Darvocets, Integrity, Midnight, and more. They are Cleveland (British) Royalty. I haven’t really posted much about Cider, but here’s to them. The music is violent and angry, fitting into the Clevo HC lineage perfectly. Some may call them a “joke band” but they are way more pissed off than a lot of “serious” bands.

BOWEL WAS HALF INTEGRITY AND HALF ONE LIFE CREW. HERE IS SOME LIVE FOOTAGE WITH A GREAT TONY ERBA INTRO.

Bowel is a band that was semi-active in the 90s. I don’t know a whole lot about them but it’s some pretty heavy death metal played by a fantastic lineup. Let’s take a look. We have Mean Steve (Confront, One Life Crew), Aaron “a2” Melnick (Integrity), Lenny Melnick (Integrity), and Tony “Chubby Fresh” Pines (Integrity, One Life Crew). This footage is from Konyafest as this was a band loved by Jim Konya. Enjoy the songs and tell a friend.
