Thanksgiving Contest



There are thousands and thousands of different hardcore records out there. Maybe even a million, who knows. There are a quite a few classics that distinguish themselves from the legions of mediocre and poorly executed records that make up most of the rest.

And then there are the collosal failures. You know what I'm talking about. The records that came after Wig Out and Scream for Change, to name a couple. The Hardcore "turkeys."

Since the Thanksgiving holiday is nearly upon us, I thought it might be fun to fire up a few of those Hardcore turkeys to celebrate the day. If you'd like to participate in the contest, please e-mail me your suggestion for Hardcore Music's All-Time Turkey at bareboneshc@hotmail.com.

I don't need an essay, and I don't need a list of all of the records you think fit the bill. I am looking for emails from BBHC readers nominating their Hardcore Music's All-Time Turkey, along with thoughts about the bands that realease them, the damage the bands did to themselves with the record, as well as the damage done to your fragile mental state and sense of hearing after giving the record a whirl or two.

The reader who makes the most compelling and amusing case for Hardcore Music's All-Time Turkey will be awarded one of the finest collections of fanzines ever assembled: Hardware Fanzine -- The Complete Collection, now available on CD format.

Please send all entries to me no later than Wednesday, November 23rd at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced at noon on Thanksgiving Day (US).
