Quicksand - "Dine Alone" 7inch

This is the second Quicksand 7inch I've posted here, but this is actually the first one they did (for a major label | first lp). These are actually demo versions of the songs that would later appear on their first lp "Slip".

If you're not in the know- Quicksand was a post-hardcore band in the mid/late 90's (and yet another band featuring a who's who of New York Hardcore bands) who release an EP and two Lp's as well as a variety of singles and an unreleased/unfinished third lp before splitting up for good. Growing through years of playing in genre defining and changing bands such as Gorilla Biscuits, Beyond, Burn, and Bold (to name a few) the members of Quicksand took the hammering and pounding sounds of hardcore and meshed them well with jangling guitars and loud bass driven songs. Start|stop guitars, clean vocals, but still the ability to crush and precision playing among the best.

Quicksand was and continues to be one of the most influential bands in the genre of Post-Hardcore as well as heavy rock.
