CRUMBSUCKERS Frontman: 'I Want To Do More Shows'

Legendary New York hardcore/metal act CRUMBSUCKERS reunited for a special show last night (Thursday, August 3) at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic "Life of Dreams" release. Original members Meskil, Chris Notaro (vocals), Chuck Lenihan (guitar GENITORTURERS), and Dan Richardson (drums LIFE OF AGONY, PRO-PAIN, STEREOMUD) were accompanied by PRO-PAIN's Tom Klimchuck during the concert, which featured support from SUBZERO, IRONBOUND NYC (featuring members of SICK OF IT ALL, KILLING TIME, MAXIMUM PENALTY, STRAIGHT AHEAD and NAUSEA) and CAR BOMB. Check out pictures at this location.

Commented Notaro: "Man, I just read some of the emails and comments from you guys... (and girls!). I want you all to know that, I'm just totally blown away and honored to call and consider you guys my friends. Last night was a big night for me, being that I haven't been on stage for, uhhh, like 15 years. Sure, I could have done better, but heck, I'm glad the way things turned out! You guys went nuts, definitely reminded me of the old days....people flyin' everywhere!

"Thanks to everyone who came out from [Long] Island, as well as everywhere else... including out of state and from overseas. Again, you people are amazing.

"I'll speak for myself here.... I want to do more shows...maybe a little East Coast deal to start off with. Judging by last night's show, and your enthusiasm, I'd bet the rest of the guys will wanna jam it out a bit more!

"A big thanks to all the younger people there last night... The SUCKERS welcome you, and a big thanks to all the loyal fans who have been there since the beginning.... you'll never know how this guy appreciates you."

CRUMBSUCKERS released two full-length albums through the Combat label — 1986's "Life of Dreams" and 1988's "Beast On My Back" — before finally calling it a day in the early Nineties. Several members embarked on a melodic metal venture called HEAVY RAIN, but that band was short-lived. The rhythm section of Meskil and Richardson went on to PRO-PAIN, while Chuck Lenihan ended up with GENITORTURERS.
