Sheer Terror

NYHC vets Sheer Terror put out Standing Up For Falling Down, their first album in 18 years, earlier this year, and not along ago played a hometown show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Since we last spoke, they've been added as an opener to another local show, the one UK vets Subhumans are headlining on July 27 at Le Poisson Rouge with White Collar Crime and Mischief Brew. Tickets for that show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair.

Contest details, with a full set video of Sheer Terror at BK Bazaar, below...

Change the name, Paul. It's not "Sheer Terror" without Alan Blake who wrote ALL the music for the first lp or Mark Neuman who wrote ALL the music for the second lp.

This new Sheer Terror lp like all Sheer Terror lps after the first lp sucks dick.

D, you go suck a dick. Stop living in the past.

Paul has always been down.

Nah you go suck a dick 4:42pm. I'm not living in the past but since you agree with me that one shouldn't pass along this to Sheer Terror - call it a challenge if you will:

Don't play ANYTHING off the first lp or pre-first lp demo songs for two years from the date of this show.

I DEFY them to do that. They never would cuz then they'd have to stand on their four shitty albums after it and draw less than 100 paid people every show.

Posted by D | July 16, 2014 4:50 PM

4:34 would never have the balls to say that to Paul.

Keyboard warrior that guy.

Has D ever said one comment ever on this site that wasn't negative or hostile? Seriously, I'm asking.

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2014 4:51 PM

I bet if they played 15 songs at Subhumans at least ten of them would be from Just Can't Hate Enough and Thanks Fer Nuthin' released in 1989 (25 years ago) and 1992 (22 years ago), respectively, their first two full-lengths, so who's "living in the past" between us, huh?

Their 15 song set at Subhumans should be at least 10 from their last three lps including the new lp. Why not when that's a bigger and more current body of work than what they did in the late '80s-early '90s?

Posted by D | July 16, 2014 4:54 PM

So why don't you go to that show and hand Paul a setlist you wrote out and see how that works out for ya?

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2014 4:58 PM

4:54 is a fucking coward.

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2014 5:01 PM

Anonymous telling me I'm a coward hahaha.

Hey fuckstick I am the ONLY BV commenter who ever posted his email address for ANYONE to write me and only ONE person wrote me: XTAINTX and he was cool with me (and vice versa) so the "you're a coward" shit doesn't fly esp. when you post as Anonymous.

I'm not afraid of Paul and I doubt he'd be so worked up over what I wrote to want to take a swing at me and miss.

No need to hand Paul a setlist, just don't play anything off Just Can't Hate Enough for two years and we'll see how that works out for Sheer Terror.

Posted by D | July 16, 2014 5:54 PM

Anyone gonna point out that their 'hometown' is closer to where Siris was shot than where The Warriors lived?

Posted by I might be xTAINTx | July 16, 2014 7:13 PM

5:54 go back to mowing lawns for a living, it's pretty much all you'll amount to. Oh, and being famous on a anonymous board.

Winning in life buddy, killing it!

Not surprised that 4:51's question was almost subtly avoided.

Go back to whining about me like a hurt bitch 7:48pm - oh wait...


Posted by D | July 16, 2014 11:43 PM

If I'm not "winning in life" what does that say about you writing to me? That goes for all of you save XTAINTX and not just hurt bitch at 7:48pm.

I get a kick out of all of you who run your mouths about how I'm posting anonymously when you're posting as "Anonymous".

Posted by D | July 16, 2014 11:47 PM

Don't fuck with D, or you get the D in the B... Knameen?

11:47 is so confused he makes no sense.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 9:45 AM

It's pretty weird how a grown man on a anonymous website is seeking validation by people throwing insults his way and in turn views this as a sign of popularity and self worth.

I'm a psychiatrist by trade and you really should see someone some day.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 9:48 AM

D you are such an idiot. Any band that has been around for a long time has to play their "hits" because that's what people want to hear. If you go to a Rolling Stone show do they only play shit off last three records? Such a stupid argument. Get a fucking life.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 10:17 AM

9:48/10:17 are smart adults and live in the real world. Both, in the span of two comments summed up how sad/lonely and stupid this guy is.

Wow, that was awesome.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 10:36 AM

10:36 - LOL, that was indeed pretty awesome.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 12:57 PM

Oh look, 10:36 posting four times (9:48/10:17/10:36/12:57pm.) Get a job and a life you quack.

If I'm sad, lonely, stupid etc. you are people replying to me making you even sadder, lonelier, stupider etc.

Friends laugh at you. I laugh at you. Even funnier is Paul Bearer from Sheer Terror has yet to come on here to go off on me which I would LOVE to happen. Anyone who knows him PLEASE direct him to these comments and spare me "he's above it" because he has gone off on people in Sheer Terror Facebook comments.

Oh I'm sorry "Rev." Paul Bearer even though he isn't a real reverend.

Posted by D | July 17, 2014 1:21 PM

Hey 10:17pm

Bad Religion play a 20-25 song set. I've been told they play maybe four songs tops off How Could Hell Be Any Worse?, Suffer, and No Control (their first, fourth, and fifth albums as they've never played anything off their second and third ones cuz they dismiss them.)

Sheer Terror's first two lps came out in 1989 and 1992 and they put out three more lps including this new slab of shit after that. It's 2014. 95% of their live set is their first two albums and 90% of that is the first lp. That's milking it.

Also Paul loves to run his mouth about how he's about the now, ok, then why is ST's live set 95% the first two lps?


Posted by D | July 17, 2014 1:28 PM

Thankgod this retard only knows HC and appears when these bands are on BV. Imagine this stupid fuck showed up in EVERY thread. What a fucking nightmare.

1:28/D is it true Toby, Paul, Freddy and Ezak beat your ass? It's a pretty funny story, why don't you tell it?

D is a 40+ year old man :(

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2014 2:41 PM

2:41: No, he's a 40+ man who works in the landscaping business out in Queens.

2:36 do tell!

2:36pm No, no, no, and no, fuck all four of them, they're not as badass as you think.

You, 2:41pm, are a sad sack replying to a 40 year old man (no +.)

I don't work in the landscaping business but if I did I'd be making a helluvalot more than your jobless broke ass.

4:11pm = 2:36pm = 4:22pm

Posted by D | July 18, 2014 2:44 AM

12:24 is all sorts of confused.

Heard from a pretty reliable source that knows who this "D" is, that he was in fact, beat up by a few people mentioned.

I'll leave it at that.

I believe you are incorrect.

Suffer is their 3rd album, No Control is their 4th, and Against the Grain is their 5th. All three are well liked.

The 2nd album, the kinda weird prog-rock one, is Into the Unknown. That's the one I think you are talking about.

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2014 10:12 AM

I stand corrected - Suffer is the third BR album, No Control the fourth, as Back To The Known released between Into The Unknown and Suffer is an EP which is oddly not included in Bad Religion's discography. I momentarily thought BTTK was an LP hence why I said Suffer and No Control were their fourth and fifth albums, respectively.

My point was/is Bad Religion have a bigger and better body of work than Sheer Terror through 1990 alone (all records through Against The Grain) and it's not the bulk/majority of their set like 25-year old Just Can't Hate Enough and 22-year old Thanks Fer Nuthin' are the bulk/majority of Sheer Terror's set cuz ST's output after the second one sucks. Their new album is crap compared to JCHE.

BTW Bad Religion at The Ritz in the old Studio 54 space on W.54th St. NYC on this day 22 years ago was GREAT. 'Miss that place!

Posted by D | July 18, 2014 9:10 PM

*oddly not included in Bad Religion's discography on their Wikipedia page.

Posted by D | July 18, 2014 9:11 PM

Dearest "D",

My dick must taste really fucking good,'cause you can't seem to keep my name off of your tongue.

This was time wasted. Have fun,kids.

And, that is a fucking wrap.

Get over yourself Paul, and you're not a "Reverend" either.

For a guy who doesn't give a fuck what anyone thinks about him (you), you sure don't show it here. Truth hurts, huh, sweetums?

The challenge is now officially on since you decided to come on here:

After the show where your "band" is playing second banana to Subhumans, I challenge Sheer Terror to go the rest of this year AND next without playing a song off "Just Can't Hate Enough" a record you put out a quarter of a century ago written by a guy who left or quit the band 24 years ago (since it most certainly wasn't you who wrote the music - kinda hard to do that when you can't play an instrument.)

Are you up for it? Hey, you put out four full-length albums after JCHE including this newest turd you crapped out (after the last three), more than enough material to draw from for a live set. Go to it. Could you? Or more like would you?

Posted by D | July 21, 2014 4:13 AM

BTW Paul that's quite a homosexual fantasy you got going to say. Sorry to disappoint you but I put my mouth on pussy and tits, not dick.

The bottom line is you're full of shit cuz it took $$$$$ for you to bring back Sheer Terror after you ran your mouth for YEARS about how you'd never, ever, never do the band again so don't even botha askin'. And you still have this Ray Liotta "fuck you pay me" I can't quite understand after you barely did any work for your band close to Sick Of It All.

It's all good. You played Seattle and Portland - what's next? Korea? Zimbabwe? 1980s NYHC bands don't end, they just play wherever the money is and where they haven't played before to milk it for all it's worth.

Posted by D | July 21, 2014 4:21 AM

To the asshole who says he "heard from a reliable source" that I got my ass beat by DMS:

I didn't but let's say I did. Yeah, two or more of them did it, cuz DMS never fights one on one e.g. the Harley Flanagan incident at Webster Hall where he punked out two of them.

I love how when one speaks his mind in hardcore it stems from him being beaten by a pack of thugs, as if it's shameful to be ganged up on when it's not. That's EXACTLY the kind of mentality which is the reason why bands like Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front, and Murphy's Law are gonna play into their sixties. They have to for all the money they lost 1990-94 thanks to the local meathead hardcore union with NYC as the district council for it.

Posted by D | July 21, 2014 4:39 AM

This guy has waaay too much time on his hands. Thank god he only knows NYHC, imagine this baboon commented on every post? Painful.

Actually 5pm the only stupid one is you. What I say about people who rail against me makes perfect sense. If I'm the fool you think I am what does that make you for replying to and talking about me? The fools who follow the fool thus bigger fools. It's pretty easy to comprehend save for dumbfucks like you.

You're too cowardly to address me directly instead of reply to someone else but really to yourself you fucking obsessed cumquat.

You can do better than that 5:21pm.

What I find hilarious about the whole "Fake D" thing is you actually think someone is impersonatng me despite them never posting as "D". I love how people out there are afraid to post as me and with good reason: they'll be the ones outed as "Fake D" as I am such a unique poster who could possibly mimic me?

Posted by D | July 22, 2014 1:33 AM

Hey Paul my challlenge still stands:

Sheer Terror goes 7/28/14-12/31/15 without playing anything off Just Can't Hate Enough. No pre-JCHE demo songs either.

But you won't cuz you'd say to yourself "We can't do that, that's our bread and butter."

Posted by D | July 22, 2014 1:35 AM

1:35/1:33 - he won't because he has a life.

And, are you really that stupid with your whole: "You just as dumb for responding and following me, that makes you even more dumb than if I responded to the dumb answer of your dumb question because it's not that dumb" comebacks??...

Did you have a formal education? Graduate HS at least? Or, GED it? You really sound quite stupid.
