Currently Rejecting Caring Hearts

I've been frigging around for too long trying to rip a record that has skips in different places on both of my copies, while trying to splice two sound files together to make one file that sounds decent, and I finally gave up and said screw it-- I'll just post some hardcore. So here you go, here's C.R.

I wasn't listening to an awful lot of hardcore at the time this record came out in '96, but I went ahead and bought this from Milhouse when they played a show in Waterbury because I knew enough from reading Monkeybite, Number Two, Greedy Bastard, and Change Zine back then that C.R. were pretty much the shit. I think I saw somewhere that this 7" was reissued recently (there's a C.R. discography CD out there that has this on it, too), but I'll be damned if I can find any information about that now. Heck, even my "original" copy is still just a second pressing. Waahh, I'm not special!!

Ultrafast HC in the tradition of Siege/Infest/Dropdead, with some Gravity influence. Lots of power, and it's quite diverse, too, not just 1000mph machine gun fire. Great stuff. - FLEX Discography

The mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files-- NOT THAT ANY OF YOU DOWNLOADED THEM ANYWAY!! What's wrong with you people? C.R.'s the shit!

Hey! I downloaded this! You're right, it is the shit! I guess it's been a while since I've been around, but thanks for this! Is C.R. the same band as Christopher Robin? I've never heard Christopher Robin, but I've heard that they were a fast hardcore band from NY in the 90's, so I'm guessing it's probably the same band. Any chance of a re-up with all of the tracks? Thanks again anyway!

Never heard of Christopher Robin either, but C.R. supposedly meant "Compassionate Revolution" so I doubt they're the same band.

The tracks I had put up here were the only ones I ripped, so if you were able to get those then you have all of them... there's a C.R. discography CD anyway, which I think is fairly easily found.

If you still need any of these particular tracks, send me an e-mail and I can pass them along.
