New York waved sayonara to one of the greatest grind bands in the city on Saturday night (12/17) when Defeatist played their final show with a handpicked lineup of Triac, Psychic Limb, D.O.C., and Backslider. There is no malice between the three Defeat-ers, and in fact, Saturday night at Death By Audio was more of a celebration of the collective and the band was undoubtedly at their tightest. The dizzyingly impressive grind trio will be sorely missed.
Meanwhile, look out for material from Radiation Blackbody (Josh & Joel of Defeatist) and Praetura (with Joel of Defeatist) as well as some live shows by those bands.
If you missed D.O.C., make sure and check them out in the new year when they team with Coke Bust, Tenement & Rational Animals at Acheron on 1/4. Coke Bust, D.O.C., Sick Fix and Magrudergrind all feature drummer Chris Moore.
Check out some pictures from their final date below (though none of Backslider, who I missed), below...
