Verbal Assault - More Than Music

It's more than music

More than a new dance

More than fashion

More than a posed stance

It's more than music

It's something to live life with

Beyond cheap slogans

An act of love, an attempt to give

We have seen a lot of kids drift away

And now they're gone

But new blood and old ideals

Help keep our vision strong

It's more than music

It's our life

Verbal Assault was a great band.I got to interview them for my radio station/zine in the summer of 88 right before they headed off to college. This is when Tiny Giants came out. Exit and On were two great "almost" post hardcore EP's. I hope the nostalgia bug bites them.I would see them in a heart beat.

When I called Chris Jones for an Interview the Answering machine referenced seeing or getting abducted by aliens. This was his parents message,but when X-Files came on TV at first I always thought of Verbal Assault.

Definitely an all time fave. Saw them opening for Agnostic Front (I believe) in Atlanta as well as headlining w/The Stench (from Utah?) opening. The Metroplex & Trinity Ave. if memory serves. Chris Jones is an awsome guy.

I saw them everytime they played in DC. They were one of the best bands of all time. I was lucky to see them play with Soulside and Fugazi, 1988 at the wilson center in DC. That night, when the song "Trial" kick in, the place went ape sh*t. "ON" is still in my car today. I love that record.

As hard as it can be to accept criticism, it can also be a challenge to muster the courage to provide criticism, and this can cause some people to procrastinate in giving it.

It’s high time that we realize that the issue of managed care carries the essence of almost all the challenges we face in modern society.
