I toured through the Southeast in 2002 with ARTIMUS PYLE, and met am enthusiastic kid in North Carolina. His demeanor was more like that of a Southern California hardcore throwback, but his accent was notable and he was smart as a whip, especially when it came to hardcore. He told me that he was moving to Virginia to play drums for MUNICIPAL WASTE and gave me a demo of his project DIRECT CONTROL. 14 years after we met, Brandon left this earth with a mind numbing musical legacy in his wake. Also worth noting that the opening bars of "Hardcore For Heroin" is one of the the most brilliant(ly blatant) ripoffs in modern hardcore, that kid clearly wasn't fucking around.
