The show was at CC’s in PA…it was 108, FP….anywho during our set a couple of knuckle heads were causing some trouble pushing around the mcyc kids..well after we got done playing and 108 went on the real shit went down, first Zev pops this thug dude in the face (nice shot splits his eye open with one shot) then I drop some other guy (kick to the stomach) Hornacker who was in 108 at the time jumps off stage and starts to kick the shit out of the guy Zev hit, this guy goes down only to get stomped and I mean stomped by the nj crew! Zusi is hitting him in the face with a roll of nickels, this guy gets up runs into the back of the club and gets a pool que, breaks the que over Rob Fish’s arm…then all hell breaks out Vic 108 is on stage putting a pool ball in his sock, Scott Davis is trying to steal some girls distro of bad cd’s (hahahaha) Hornacker, Zusi, Porter and I think a few other guys hit this guy with chairs…heavy oak ones! this guy got beat from the stage back into the back room…from what I recall he said he was ready to Die ( and I believe him!) both sides of his face were blooded up, side note I give this guy MAD PROPS! he took a hell of a beating and was still ready to go! where were the mcyc kids? exit stage left they ran out! Along with the guy who was getting beat enÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crew, cops came and from what I hear he was taking shots at the cops…. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know why but I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stop thinking about this fight this morning….

Some Nazi’s showed up to the Cocadrie, if I remember correctly, the bill was Floorpunch, Gyromite (Azy and Jesse would later go on to do Panic, AN, etc), and I think two other local Nor Cal bands…anyway Porter grabs some dude around the neck with the mic cord and my friend busts this Nazi right in the face with like a pipe from his van. That show was insane. Those Nazis were pretty big dudes too, they got swarmed by just about everyone in the building…if you check out Lost Cauze Fanzine #8 (or #9?) there was pics from the show. Insanity.
