Limp Wrist is a hardcore punk band featuring members of Los Crudos, Hail Mary, and Kill the Man Who Questions.
Referring to their style of hardcore punk music, the band declared in Frontiers Newsmagazine, “We put the ‘core’ back in homocore”. Their first recording was the self-released demo Don’t Knock It Till You Try It. This was followed by a single called “What’s Up With The Kids” and then the self-titled LP Limp Wrist. However, since band members lived in different states maintaining the group became difficult. After an interlude they resumed touring in 2004 and released a new LP, Complete Discography the same year. The song “Ode” from this recording pays tribute to pioneering gay hardcore musicians Gary Floyd of The Dicks, Randy “Biscuit” Turner of Big Boys and Joshua Plague of Mukilteo Fairies and Behead The Prophet, No Lord Shall Live, providing a historical context for Limp Wrist.
The band’s best known song is “I Love Hardcore Boys, I Love Boys Hardcore”, which received much attention from fans and press alike. Lead singer Martin Sorrondeguy appears in “Queercore: A Punk-u-mentary” by Scott Treleaven and addresses the issue implicit in these song titles, what some might view as the apparent struggles of being both queer and being involved in the punk scene.

Conceived in Iraq, the back of a van hurtling across the desert, Mississippi, and the leaf shrouded seclusion of a Mount Pleasant basement, GIVE has existed in one form or another for close to five years. We played our first show in November of ’08, since then we have played many shows in many places. We’ve had three recording sessions, all with Don Zientara at Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, VA.

S.H.I.T. Demo Tape 2012
”Demo tape from this new Toronto band featuring a whole bunch of familiar faces. This little bastard is a SCORCHER, perfectly-executed weird, uncomfortable hardcore. I can’t really think of anything to compare it to off the top of my head, which is always a good thing. It’s fast and simple, but more in a Rudimentary Peni way than an Agnostic Front kind of way, and the vocals are creepy and tortured, and it’s especially cool when they’re double tracked, which gives them a really unique and haunting sound. I could see people into stuff like Omegas being into this as well as people into GISM and Rudi Peni… great fucking demo, highly recommended!”
