Pillsbury Hardcore


Pillsbury Hardcore formed in the summer of 1984 out the ashes of Disinfection & DDT. The band was named by a friend, Pat Kwee, after another friend (Dean Riley Stokes, who on the first gig was their guitar player) who resembled the Pillsbury Doughboy and was feverishly into hardcore, hence Pillsbury Hardcore. Their first show was a party where everybody was getting drunk, in retaliation to what they were experiencing, they borrowed instruments and called themselves “The Straight Edge Fascists/Pillsbury Hardcore”.

Pillsbury Hardcore formed in the summer of 1984 out the ashes of Disinfection & DDT. The band was named by a friend, Pat Kwee, after another friend (Dean Riley Stokes, who on the first gig was their guitar player) who resembled the Pillsbury Doughboy and was feverishly into hardcore, hence Pillsbury Hardcore. Their first show was a party where everybody was getting drunk, in retaliation to what they were experiencing, they borrowed instruments and called themselves “The Straight Edge Fascists/Pillsbury Hardcore”. The set consisted of a improv jams with lyrics made up on the spot and basically annoyed all the party goers (this was basically the band’s mantra until the end).

This would continue for a few more parties and into their first bonafide show, which featured Scab on vox, Bob Durkee on guitar, Jon Roa on bass, and Joel Connell on drums. This lineup lasted one show and Shawn Connell was brought in on bass duties which also lasted one show when Shawn was moved to guitar and Eric Wood on bass. This lineup lasted for nearly two years and produced a demo (Poppin Fresh), a live tape (Live In 85), a appearance on Flipside Video, two 7″ records (In A Straight Edge Limbo & Horror Snores), and two compilation appearances (End the War Zone & Empty Skulls 2). Sadly the group disbanded in the summer of 1986.

After a brief break, the band minus Scab, reformed. Which produced a failed attempt at an album (which Scab contributed vocals to). The album material was not up to snuff so plans to release the L.P. were subsequently scrapped. The band continued for another year which produced some of the tightest material the band ever produced and was the groundwork for the oncoming “Power Violence” movement.

After a short U.S. tour the band called it a day. Other members went on to form Pissed Happy Children, Shoeface, Process, End to End, & of course Man is the Bastard. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
