Seems like Crucial Response Records gets some coverage lately, not that we were interviewed in Trust fanzine a while ago, a book by Tony Rettman came out recently which features some Crucial Response bands in the european chapter. "Straight Edge: A Clear-Headed Hardcore Punk History" covers as the title says the history of straight edge. Tony Rettman is responible for Why Be Something That You're Not: Detroit Hardcore 1979-1985 and NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990 as well. All books are worth checking out.

There was an Crucial Response interview done by Jan Rölhk for the longrunning Trust fanzine. The interview foccuses mainly on hardcore and some other topics. If you want to get ahold of a copy, check out number 187 by clicking here. Please be aware that the zine is written in german language.

After some delays the second pressing of The Last Pagans by SHIPWRECKED is out now. Actually it came out a while ago. We haven't updated our news section in a while, what a scandal! What can I say, music is music and The Last Pagans is an amazing record. The gold and blue vinyl looks fantastic and the blue lettering is a nice addition on the sleeve and labels. SS Decontrol Get It Away 12" comes to mind. Shipwrecked draws influences from early Boston hardcore and the likes butt are in no way a rip off; the band has a sound on their own with slight oi influences here and there. Do yourself a favor and order a copy today.

Crucial Response Records will be releasing the In A Different Place recordings for the first time on vinyl. ONWARD is the blueprint for the norvegian hardcore. Just talked to Arne a while ago and he agreed it's about time. Ten songs that will be repackaged and will come with liner notes by Arne O. Haabeth. More infos coming soon.

I am truly sorry to hear of the loss of Martin Funderud. My deepest condolences to family & friends. You will be not forgotten brother! Rest in Power.
