Stream the rare 1985 Tough Justice cassette in its entirety, and read our chat with guitarist Johnny Fisher about the band, the release, and the first wave of Newfoundland hardcore.
After a month of digging through the Distortion archives, we inevitably had to share a personal favourite as a part of our collaborative series. Check out the full set from Truro, Nova Scotia punks Genetic Angry during their visit to St. John’s in 2008.
For this weeks collaborative flashback, we turned our attention to the diverse slew of touring acts that have stopped by Distortion over the last decade. Relive Montréal’s nomadic one-man rockabilly act Bloodshot BIll during his visit for Lawnya Vawnya 2013.
In part 2 of our #TBT collaboration, we dip into the Distortion archive once again for some unreleased tracks from the final 2012 recording session of St. John’s trio The Drunks Rule This Place.
As Distortion in St. John’s prepares the launch of their new web platform, we decided to team up up on a #TBT series to feature some exclusive selections from a decade long archive of live Distortion recordings.
