The return of
Supertouch started in 1985 out of the ashes of the New York hardcore band Death Before Dishonor. They had released a demo and some WNYU tapes but no actual records. When their drummer, Mike of Judge/Youth of Today fame, left the band to pursue other musical interests the rest of them forged ahead. The band got a new drummer and took the name Supertouch after a Bad Brains song. They started out with a song on Revelation Records NYC HC: The Way It Is followed up by a 7″, an LP and one last song on the Anti-Matter comp. They also recorded a song for the movie “Sam” and were the subject of an unofficial documentary. Definitely ahead of their time, Supertouch is thought by many to be one of the most influential bands to develop from the hardcore scene.

And check this interview and live video that aired on The CT on WTXX (local T.V.):
Today’s Colin McEnroe Show (on 90.5 FM WNPR) was on the subject of Record Stores.
The show’s in-studio guests were Malcolm Tent (Trash American Style, Ultrabunny, WNHU Radio), Brendan Toller (Documentarian, I Need That Record), and Doug & Mary (Replay Records). Dan (Mystic Discs) called in and so did Josh (Redscroll!) and so did a few fans of vinyl.
If you didn’t get a chance to hear it live, do not fret, it is available here:
Malcolm Tent (http://www.malcolmtent.net/) will also be performing live here at the shop on Record Store Day (Saturday) at 6PM. He’ll be bringing his sparkly blue acoustic guitar and reveling listeners in song. It’s actually his second stop of the day – his first will be at 3PM in Brookfield at Gerosa Records.
And on Sunday, at 4PM on the campus of Wesleyan University Josh, Malcolm, myself (Rick) and others will join in a viewing and discussion of the film I Need That Record.
