Rats Get Fat
The New York hardcore scene has seen many changes since it's inception into the punk rock genre over 20 years ago. And throughout these changes, the music and people within the New York hardcore community continued to honor it's past by adopting the same punk rock belief system that makes this style of music one of the most unique and loyal underground scenes known to music. By the start of the new millennium this very same belief system appeared to be on it's death bed when eyeliner and bleeding hearts replaced black eyes and raised fists as the hardcore scene began to witness the slow death of NYHC as we once knew it. These tragic transformations left many hardcore fans bewildered and consistently asking themselves, is hardcore as we once knew it gone forever? THIS JUST IN: In 2007 New York hardcore will once again rise from it's ashes and Queens, N.Y.'s Caught in a Trap is responsible for it's resurrection. Their debut CD 'Rats Get Fat' is saturated with 14 black-n-blue-collared anthems that make it impossible to use hardcore and make-up in the same sentence ever again. 'Rats Get Fat' was produced by the legendary Don Fury (Madball, Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front).
