Thirteen Minutes of Darkness

New York City's Citizen's Arrest were a bit late to the party but this tardiness did win them the honor of being one of the greatest hardcore bands of the '90s. A Light in the Darkness was the band's blistering debut, and fucking hell, these baboons came out swinging.

Awesome. Thanks. I'm gonna go see them on the 31st too. They just put out new songs on Dave from Unsane's (and, full disclosure,our drummer, Jim's too) new online label. www.coextinction.com if anyone is interested.

I always thought that CXA were th best of the ABC No Rio crowd, just really captured the spirit of the times of post "Youth Crew" NYC. It's weird to think that Indie poster boy Ted Leo was in this band for a minute....
