Once again I find myself responding to a sweet post over at the Something I Learned Today mp3 blog. The Insane Industries Half Skull Comp featured Decry + 3 other bands and Decry's first 7" also appeared on this label. Although the band's single was reissued on a Cleopatra retrospective (OOP??) with most of their other recordings the compilation left off Symptoms Of Hate and Fight To Survive from the 7". Most will agree that the Falling LP represents their punk rock best but I've always liked all of their stuff including the often maligned Japanese LP. When Decry toured with Peace Corpse and played my hometown they were supposed to play a "youth dance" as the promoter booked it at a VFW hall. When people started showing up in the parking lot the owner, not particularly pleased with the look of the youth, locked the door and wouldn't let anyone in. Hours later they managed to redirect the show to another venue and it when on as planned.
