District 9 stood apart from the crowd as their incredibly real and powerful lyrics, Catchy yet punishing songs, smoking guitars, street smart rhythyms and their "Straight Out The Bronx" attitude captivated the Underground scene. Being from the Birthplace of Hip Hop Music, and representing an eccletic mix of cultures, District 9 infused AUTHENTIC and Organic hip hop influences into their music years before countless bands attempted to "Rap Metal" their way to the top without a fraction of the style or songwriting ability. Playing shows alongside labelmates No Redeeming Social Value, Vision Of Disorder, 25 Ta Life, Fahrenheit 451, Six And Violence, and others District 9 made an indelible mark on the global hardcore scene with their intense live performances, and their incredibly dynamic recordings. The band dissolved in 1998 and Myke joined and toured with Skarhead. District 9 Returned to the stage in 2006 after an 8 year abscense performing an intense set at the SUPERBOWL OF HARDCORE in NYC. A few months later, they sold out CBGB's (and then some) for a brutal headlining performance, with their old pals No Redeeming Social Value joining them for a show that nearly destroyed CBGB's a few months ahead of schedule. Looking ahead, the band has shows booked in Long Island and New Jersey with H20 in January 2007, and will be re-issuing the long out of print Schoolahardknox 7" on Compact Disc for the first time in North America with a complete "LIVE IN NYC" performance from 1995 and other rare gems's being made available for the first time ever.
"Schoolahardknox Revisited" will be released in January 2007 through Dignified Bastard Media. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
