Agression was very well known for its fast-paced, aggressive songs such as "Slammin' at the Club", "Money Machine", "Intense Energy", "Never Alone", "Go to War", and "Locals Only.”

Oh, i love this fucking good band, the nardcore is a great scene and has great exponents within the hardcore punk and the skate punk.
Ill Repute, RKL, Stalag, Scared Straight (Ten Foot Pole), and my favourite: Dr Know xp, among other, are nice examples.
Cheers amigo!

sweet jebus did these guys suck...and no, the errant spelling wasn't 'ironic'....they were really that dumb.

I grew up in Oxnard (tragically), and that 'scene' was nothing but utterly derivative South Bay HC with some atavistic metal elements because everybody was too stoned to change the radio dial from the Mighty Met (KMET).

Dr. Know had all the wit that existed in the 'Nardcore scene, mostly because Kyle was smarter than the rest of those bands added together (we were in school together & I can attest that, while a smartass of the highest caliber, he was/is a really intelligent guy).

Glad this does something for you, but having been there at the time, I can't imagine why. Ah Oxnard, where the sewer meets the sea....
