Fun Factoid Friday: Life before Strike Anywhere

inquisition-revolution-i-think-its-called-inspirationEvery 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 Richmond band that went by the name Inquisition.

Long before Strike Anywhere, the Virginia melodic hardcore band’s lead singer Thomas Barnett sang for a band by the name of Inquisition with Ann Beretta guitarist/vocalist (then bassist) Rob Huddleston and drummer Russ Jones, as well as River City High guitarist Mark Avery. Together they released 2 full-lengths, Broken Songs and Revolution, I Think It’s Called Inspiration, the latter of which has been reissued by A-F Records, and several 7″s before parting ways in 1996.  In May 2007 the band reunited to play two shows in their hometown, which were recorded and compiled for a CD/DVD to be released by No Idea Records in 2008. Part of the band lives on to this very day, as the band name Strike Anywhere came from the title of an Inquisition track.
