Sick Of It All
Started by brothers Lou and Pete Koller (vocals and guitar respectively), along with Eddie (bass) and E.K. (drums), Sick Of It All would soon become an important addition to the N.Y. Hardcore scene, coming across as a stronger form of Rancid and Beastie Boys, with their early releases of Blood Sweat And No Tears (1989) and Just Look Around (1991). We Stand Alone (1992) was their last with E.K. and Eddie who left and were replaced with Craig Setari (bass) and Armin Majidi (drums). East-West' would jump on the Hardcore & Punk revivalist movement of the early 1990s when they signed the act to release Scratch The Surface (1994). It wouldn't be until 1997 when their Built To Last release emerged followed soon after by Call To Arms (1999). Sick Of It All also took the time for some socialist endeavors when they assisted their Roadie Toby Morse get his act H2O off the ground.
