Here’s a rare one for you Pittsburgh. Remember Quicksand, well maybe you don’t. They had a quick stint in the early 90’s in New York’s hardcore scene and toured with major 90’s bands ultimately gaining quick recognition.
The group disbanded in 1995 and ultimately reunited in 1998. The 4 piece of Walter Schreifels
Tom Capone, Alan Cage and Sergio Vega put out two albums, one in 93 called Slip and 95 called Manic Compression. Now 22 years later their 3rd album called Interiors is due out November 10 on Epitaph Records.
If you were looking forward to seeing the full band it will not happen this time. Just a few weeks ago guitarist Tom Capone was arrested by the Phoenix, AZ police department for shoplifting at a CVS store. “Capone was reportedly seen on security cameras by employees stuffing a total of 43 items in both his backpack and pockets before leaving the store without paying,” said the Phoenix News Times.
