Here's a split between two Oi!/street punk bands, one from Connecticut (Chelloveck 4) and one from Brooklyn but with ties back to Connecticut (The Deacons). You'd think this would be a pretty decent collectible, being that it's ten years old and on (sab) grey vinyl and everything, but I did a check on the internet and you can still find new copies all over the place, so I guess it's not that big of a deal.
I saw Chelloveck 4 only once, in '99 with the Spoilers and the Ducky Boys at a biker bar that was across from a cemetery in Meriden (Chas' Place, maybe?). Chelloveck 4 were pretty good that night, and the Spoilers ruled like they always did of course; meanwhile the Ducky Boys are probably the worst band that I've ever had to see twice (I saw them again at The Tune Inn about a year later-- apparently some things are unavoidable).
As for The Deacons, Rich Stremme is literally the first kid from the Ct. HC scene that I ever knew, back when he was living in Southbury. We both started our HC 'zines at around the same time in 1985 (Rich's zine was called Socially Unaccepted), and then Rich went on to be in some other bands like Brutally Familiar and so forth. Al Pist also played bass in The Deacons for a while, too.
A-hup, two, three, four...
