Face To Face

In the courtyard stood the early nineties, when the 3 boy from Southern California Trever Keith, Matt Riddle and Rob Kurth thought: & # 171; But why do not we put to exciting punk revival movement, and not zabatsat cool punk band? & # 187; Trevor, as the founder of the group, boldly assumed the role of lead singer, and concurrently also pobrenkival guitar. Matt tortured bass and Rob drum kit. Moreover, both still and vociferous singing Trever. In the beginning the gang was called Zero Tolerance, but quickly found out that it is too standard name (even toy have such a computer), and the group took to the French phrase vis a vis, which essentially means, and Face To Face. Californians decided to make his debut under the tutelage of Dr. Strange Records, which released the now classic & # 171; Don & # 146; t Turn Away & # 187 ;, as well as lit up on the dream of any collector & # 151; & # 171; A Strange Compilation & # 187; (limited edition, respectively). The success of the group grew, all of California literally learned them from the first chords, and one savvy guy & # 151; Fat Mike (yes the one from NOFX!) Thought that the band has not sickly potential and pulled it on your tiny record label Fat Wreck Chords, which was successfully re-released & # 171; Don & # 146; t Turn Away & # 187 ;. Then he sent a group of & # 133; European tour with Lagwagon. The latter, apparently, somehow affected the Face To Face, because the group agreed that complete harmony with the music world it lacks the fourth member, that is not something that someone was unhappy with the amount of their reproductive organs, and & # 133; in general, meet and love Chad Yaro!

Once the arrival of Chad, Face To Face over on Victory Music (which, incidentally, in 1995 bankrotirovali, but I think this group is not involved). On the & # 171; & # 187 victory; label released EP & # 171; Over It & # 187; and & # 133; Guess what else? & # 150; Well, of course & # 171; Don & # 146; t Turn Away & # 187; the third time! The next full-length album, which Chris Conley of Saves The Day dubbed soundtrack of his life, was named & # 171; Big Choice & # 187 ;. To promote the album, with its aggressive and melodic songs, the band went on tour with bands such as The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and The Offspring. & # 171; Then in ’95 I was wrong & # 151; I thought that the world can be changed with the right song & # 187 ;, & # 151; I sang Trever Keith. But he was not mistaken, the world really changed from the songs Face To Face. Young group inspired by their example, song ideas penetrated into the minds of today’s punk.

Once the bankrupt Victory Music Group was quite difficult to continue their existence on this label, and therefore become the new home of A & amp; M Records. & # 171; A time of change, as time changes & # 187 ;, & # 151; We thought, Face To Face, Matt Riddle and instead took to the responsible post of bassist Scott Shiflett. It is worth noting that the talent Matt was not in vain, since the bass roles in No Use For A Name is not executed without his participation (and Matt, and talent, respectively). Subsequent years are filled with solid travels, collections of songs for a live album. Small clubs, intimate atmosphere & # 150; it is not surprising that the group outlined a personal relationship with indie lebylom Vagrant Records. Relations were so personal that Vagrant even allowed in their own depths to create a quartet of small record company Lady Luck Records. With that and, of course, not without the help of Vagrant Records was released that same concert album. Bringing the joy of the audience, at the same time it took from the group Rob Kurth, a place which was not slow to take Pete Parada, who promised to bang on the fourth full-length album for two. And it is great drumming! No wonder Aversion webzine called Ignorance is Bliss & # 171; truly the best experience in the songwriting group that takes the team to the new latitude & # 187 ;. 1999 also marked the release of & # 171; Standards and Practices & # 187 ;, that is, the group dispersed in earnest.

Face To Face did not want to keep up with the time and support for digital music, the Internet, and just out of respect for his fans have placed 16 songs on www.mp3.com and asked people to vote for the best song of the group. Nearly 2 million votes resulted in the top 12 songs and a new album under the name & # 171; Reactionary & # 187 ;. And for such loyalty to mp3 format Napster in the fall of that year, another sponsored the tour.

A peaceful and friendly parting with Chad Yaro Quartet and instantly turns into a trio. Parting with one another it has been tempered by the return to another & # 150; 2002, Vagrant Records (& # 171; at last we are on the label, who knows how to sell our record & # 187;) and split with Dropkick Murphy & # 146; s. You lead by album the band? If yes, then go ahead and rolling your finger once on the sixth album & # 171; How to Ruin Everything & # 187 ;, released in the same year. And in the next, 2003, year of Face To Face made their fans handle (& # 171; we said what had to say & # 187;) and disintegrated. However, the group is still a little early to say goodbye & # 151; Keith has created a new LEBL Sound on Sound, which will come out DVD and parting disks. 13 years of musical activity, 6 albums, concerts with the legends of punk rock, the recognition of fellow musical niche & # 150; All this is definitely a group allocates a separate chapter in the history of rock and a place of honor in the hearts of the audience.
