No Justice - Still Fighting 7inch



Hailing from Virginia/D.C., No Justice existed for an all too short time in the late 90's, recording a demo (if anyone has it, post in the comments) & a 7inch (i believe the memories of tomorrow comp track is the same as the version on the 7inch ???).

The 7inch came out on the Chicago label Underestimated around 1999 & featured the singer of Bladecrasher. Piled full of immense energy and what seemed an unending desire to destroy self & stage alike, the band tore apart everything- bolted down or not. Many No Justice stories have been told- like singer Timmy running about screaming into a megaphone, ripping instruments out of band members hands, and just general mayhem. Their shows are something of legends- taking the self-destructive live show of the early 80's bands into a pissed off youth crew type sound (dont rule it out if you don't like that sound, they break from that mold, a lot).

Here's a live show review I found on-line from 1999:

NO JUSTICE opened up first and their set was probably the craziest one I have seen in a while. Their music was decent youth crew sounding hardcore, but their onstage antics and quite possibly having the best jumping, energetic vocalist is what makes this band what they are. And let me tell ya, this was the first time that I have ever seen the opening band draw the largest crowd. Huge pile ons, stage dives in droves, and by the end, lots of blood too. I found myself laughing more than listening though because their singer was truely intent on either breaking his neck by jumping into spots where there weren't any people, or was more interested in destorying equipment such as the drummer's mic stand and a cymbal and stand which he threw into the crowd causing a wave of people getting the fuck out of the way. All I can say is that I'm glad that I'm a wuss and was standing in the back of the room.

Memories of tomorrow track is same as 7". The demo was just songs from the 7" that were on tape before the 7" was released. Video footage can be found:

Woah, thanks for ripping this.

Previous comment is correct, there is no "demo" per say, the tape is just a different format of the same recordings.

100 came on red, 200 on clear, and I think 1700 on black.

2nd pressing is 1000 on gold vinyl.
