: what with all the negative ParkHORSE talk? I wasn’t around in their day, and I hear a lot of bad things about them as people (being fake, egotistical, image conscious and the like). What was the deall with all of this? Did they do some shitty things?
It was probably because more that they were one of the first bands, post-NOU, that dressed like hipsters, played 10 minute sets without saying a word to the audience, went totally apeshit and had lyrics that most would deem esoteric at best. Compare that to the Struggle/Born Against/etc scene of the early 90s and there’s quite a contrast. Everything has it’s time and place and I always dug parkHORSE, but I guess not everyone was ready for them…
