Side By Side

Side By Side were a five-piece New York hardcore band that were only around between 1987 and 1988. They're often associated with bands like Youth Of Today and Gorilla Biscuits, since they share members. Along with the aforementioned, Side By Side were integral in developing the NYHC sound and Youth Crew movement. However, their recorded output was minimal relative to the others. In their time as a band, they only released one 7" and made two compilation appearances. The 7", You're Only Young Once... was released in 1988, and was one of the first albums put out by Revelation Records. It's an absolute classic, and a definite must-listen for fans of second-wave NYHC. It was reissued in 1997, which also included their compilation tracks, demo, and some live material. That's the version I have here, with the first seven tracks being the original EP. Enjoy.
