"Blowback is politically charged and firmly rooted sonically in the harDCore legacy." -- Punk Planet
"This is the type of hardcore I like - great pace, not needlessly aggressive and lots to say. This is what the hardcore kids should be listening to - never mind all the macho, trendy bullshit - you will actually learn something from this. Something valuable. Fantastic cover, great layout, great quotes - great release." -- No Front Teeth.co.uk
"...so bad, it transcends any description I could offer. " -- Sound Waves Magazine
Blowback /blo-bak/ n. the unintended consequence of intelligence operations.
Formed in early 2001 from the Charleston SC-based Colombian Neckties (Franklin Stein- vocals, John Son - drums) and Washington DC's Rugburn (Bob III - bass, SeÃ±or - Guitar, and Franklin), Blowback has played for unsuspecting crowds of 10,000 and more at numerous DC protests over the past years, including setting up shop in front of the DOJ & FBI buildings as well as a generator-powered performance in Farragut Square during a city-wide shutdown. More than music, Blowback has organized and delivered a number of petition drives to Capitol Hill, including actions to bring Pinochet to justice and repeal the Patriot Act.
Track III, the first album from Blowback, was recorded during the attacks of September 11, 2001 at Candy Ear Studios in New York City. A routine demo session quickly grew into a 15 song set in the span of four hectic days, spurred on by the events unfolding at the time.
