Host Jason Schreurs is joined by Bill Wilson of Blackout! Records, an influential creative force in the New York hardcore scene. Bill struggled with physical and mental health issues throughout his life and found a support system in loud, heavy, aggressive bands like Sheer Terror and Breakdown. Bill would be the first to admit that the hardcore scene got him through his toughest times.
Featured song clips:
Sheer Terror – “Time Don’t Heal a Thing” from Thanks fer Nuthin’ (Blackout! Records, 1992)

Outburst – “The Hard Way” from Where the Wild Things Are compilation (Blackout Records, 1989)
