Barnaby Jones, Censors Live In Long Island (8/19/17)

So quick note before I start the post: the guitarist of Censors and Barnaby Jones (Justin) is a pretty big Twitch user and live-streamed the show, which was a going away party for him as he is moving.  Censors starts at around 2:05, and Barnaby Jones starts around 2:55.

On FCTC, Kill Your Idols play incredibly aggressive hardcore, and on this album they are EXTREMELY […]
