Out Crowd – Demo 2011


I know next to nothing about them, other than the facts: The band is called OUT CROWD. They are from Atlanta, Georgia and have a demo out now on a record label called Ghetto Josh Records and I was sent said demo by Steven from the band.

What’s the verdict?

I’m here to testify – I was pleasantly surprised. My first reaction is it sounded somewhat like vintage Ray Cappo snarl fronting a more oi!-leaning YOT. The intro comes on like Blitz, while opener “Blue Bloods” navigates vintage NYHC territory, as does the 51 second “What Are Friends For.”  The last cut rumbles on with a more pointed oi!-ish purpose and its message “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired” morphs into the closing statement “just stay positive, it’s the best way.”

The entirety of the thing is under 4:00 minutes, so I don’t have much to go on, as well as no lyrics, but I likes what I likes and this is definitely hanging out in my rest stop (the bathhouses of the 90s.)

I am duly impressed. Out Crowd could very soon be a band people are talking about.
