Every Friday the punk rock geniuses here at Dying Scene are going to unleash a little bit of punk scene trivia all over your asses. Today’s “fun factoid” is about a little know connection between New York hardcore act Sick Of It All and Santa Cruz melodic skate punk group Good Riddance.
In honor of my recent Sick of it All interview, I figured I’d share with you a fun fact about another Sick Of It All related band. Most of you know Craig Setari as the bassist for Sick of it All. If you’re a hardcore guru you may also know him as the former bassist for Agnostic Front, Straight Ahead and Rest in Pieces. You may not know however one of his former hardcore bands had former Good Riddance frontman and current Only Crime vocalist Russ Rankin in it. It was a short lived band called Creep Division and in it the two musicians musical roles were reversed. Craig was on lead vocals and Russ was on bass. They put out a self-titled full-length and a split with I Want Out before ending the side project. You can check out a few of their songs on MySpace.
