The Hardcore Experience

The mighty Raw Deal at CBGB's, NYC, Photo: Boiling Point

As Double Cross has progressed over these past seven months, one thing has become increasingly apparent to me. As much as we've focused on a certain style and and era, what Double Cross is really about is documenting the hardcore experience. It doesn't matter if it was 1982, 1992 or 2002, if someone has stepped to the plate with quality stories and quality content, we welcome it with open arms. Whether it was a show you went to, a show you played, a record or fanzine you bought, a pool party that had Gus SXE practicing his stage dives into your pool, or running into Barry Hensler from the Necros at a pizza shop, it's all about the experience and how it's told. Because of this approach that we've taken, I really believe that we've opened doors and shed light on information that maybe wouldn't have been put out there.

With that being said, if you're reading this and you have stories, memories or any sort of content that you'd like to share with us and the readers, please feel free to contribute. A good story accompanied by good photos is priceless. So if you've got an idea, feel free to pitch it to us and we'll see if we can get it up here. Thanks for reading DCXX and we hope you continue to stick around follow the page. -Tim DCXX
