One thing that was always interesting in the 90s was how often various tours always collided in cities across America. This often resulted in shows with 8 - 12 bands on one bill, but they were never intended to be all day fests. This show on 8/9/98 at the Fireside Bowl in Chicago is one of those situations. Ten bands played that day, but the video I have only contains fives of them: Extinction, Shai Hulud, Trial, Harvest and Ten Yard Fight.

Here's a full set of Undertow at Nappy Dugout in Vanvouver, BC back on 12/13/92. Once again, filmed by Ron Guardipee with his hi8 camera.

After converting the video, I remembered seeing some pictures from this very show on DCXX a couple of years ago, and they had sourced these from Tom Holcomb.
Edit: I was also just informed that the cover photo for the Stalemate 7" was also taken at this show, and some outtakes can be found on the website of Dave Larson's great podcast, Nobody's Nose.

Just converted a nice, early set of Strain from 12/11/92 in Vancouver, BC at South Wall, which was above the Mickey MacDougall Arena. This was a year after their demo, but still almost two years before their s/t EP on Overkill.

In case you've been living under a rock for the last year, you might not have noticed that Good Fight has been busy signing up some of the best current bands in hardcore. They also recently put out a digital sampler with tracks from their new artists, friends of the label and even a remastered Disembodied track from an upcoming discography box set.
Stream the sampler below, and then look up these bands on their own pages.

With the King Of The Monsters fest just a mere week away, it seemed like a great time to rip and post this Groundwork set from the On The Edge radio show on WPSC 88.7 FM from the summer of 1993.  It's heavy on tracks from the split with Unbroken and the Living In Fear 7" with a couple from the (at the time) yet to be released full length as well.

With the upcoming string of Chokehold shows looming just over the horizon, it seemed like a good time to gather the live Chokehold recordings that we've posted in the past.  Maybe these can tide you over until they start playing, and A389 gets the discography out.
