Fit Of Anger
Fit Of Anger
In 1989 Chris Benetos left the band and was replaced by the band's long time friend, John Boles. 1989-1991 lineup: Nick (Grampa) - vocals John Boles - bass Al Koos - guitar Nick Benetos - guitar Todd Lung - drums The WFMU set was recorded in January of 1989. The set here is unfortunately missing one track (the mp3 i had was cut off mid-song), an unreleased song called Changing Our Time. Also, the set in this collection is strictly the music, no banter. It was nearly impossible to find the actual songs under the wall of static and hiss i had to work with, never mind any dialogue.
I'm happy with the way it came out though. It's raw and rough and heavy as shit. Some amazing bass playing on these recordings. The band recorded another demo in 1991 which i've never heard. From what i've read it's more metallic and less heavy than the '88 demo, and sure as hell hard to find.
After the second demo, Todd left and was replaced by drummer after drummer, none of which seemed to fit the band. Then Al split and the band was pretty much over by 1992. In 1996, bass player John Boles passed away. Nick, Grampa and Chris got back together along with Vinnie (NRSV/Warzone) on drums to play a benefit show for his family. In 1998 another friend from the NY scene passed away and once again Fit of Anger got back together to play a benefit.
After the show Greg from New Found Hope records who had been a longtime fan asked the band to record a full-length. Nick, Grampa and Chris hooked up with drummer Dimroc (COT, Skarhead, Stillsuit, Cold Front, Yuppicide). Each member picked their favorite tracks and went into the studio to record an album for New Found Hope Records in the US and on KingFisher in Europe. The CD, released in 2000, contained 8 newly recorded tracks of songs from both demos. 1996 lineup: Nick (Grampa) - vocals Chris Benetos - bass Nick Benetos - guitar Vinnie Verga - drums 1998 lineup: Nick (Grampa) - vocals Chris Benetos - bass Nick Benetos - guitar Dimroc - drums *words taken from Blogged and Quartered blog ( http://bloggedquartered.blogspot.com/2010/03/fit-of-anger-1988-2000.html ) Side note: Chris Benetos went to form EVERYBODY GETS HURT NIck Benetos also played in SHOW OF FORCE and later COLD FRONT Read more on Last.fm.
