my first one of these in 2 months. mostly cause I wrote this out and then lost it.

why does it seem like a ton of the bands I feature here came from that one damn show in taunton mass?

ah... the chariots of fire fest in tauton mass.. what would it have been like if I went both days? who would know. anyhow, I got to see a band called in dire need that really impressed me. The only band I know they come from is vengeance in blood (the other membered moved to ascendancy)

the range of the singer's voice, the brutal guitars, and break downs that made kids flip out. it all came together so nicely. The best part was the live show, guitars/bass swinging around, the singer rolling around on the floor.

they even came up and played a free show at UNH. this was the 6th aniversary of the return to the pit radio show show. Definitely a lot of people came out to this show to see them.

one thing that was awesome was the fact that you could sometimes catch them with all 3 guitar players. when they did, the sound was just immense.

though, some venues would loose everything that was going on if they were too echoy (case in point, the living room see above)
with some line-up changes, they continued on until their "last show" on august 8th 2003.

last show

the "last show" august is now infamous for the TAFC break up of that little event where fans in the crowd tossed a whole lot of fish and various satanic animal bits all over the PAL. They just finally finished mastering their demo tracks just before this show. the CD was available for $3, but the band had moved way passed those 3 songs by that time anyhow.

their reunion show with a new face, but only 2 guitar players. just over 2 months later and they are back (though their rossrosscity levels were near empty)

I think they also had samples too. this new idn kept on the stage for basically the whole set.

another thing is they came in on the christmas RTTP radio show. dressing in the yule time gear too.

listen to the mp3s:

a minor note, they played the sick-as-sin fest

that's their last new guitar player.

at the end of the IDN story is a band that for 5 months played to get as tight as possibly. for those of you that got to see them transform, it was pretty cool. at the end, they sonded sickly tight and were getting on many larger shows at fat cat's and in providence. definitely a maturing from the "hit people with bass" idn from years ago.
their last show just might have been with vital remains. showing just how far they came.

I'm sure the end of IDN will bring about what ends always bring about, a new beginning. this time, all new bands.

if you want more information from feb 2002, you can check out their web site:
I hear they are playing with hamartia...

Thats weird. I Know two people from the band, yet I have never heard them, or knew they were in it.

great people, great band, amazing live show. im pretty sure at thier 'last show' the demos went for 6 or 4$.

I saw more IDN shows than some kids who were in In dire Need.

their first and best show was at the Dalton club, not chariots of fire.

TAFC owned the last IDN show, and anyone who had a problem with it was a pussy.

Be on the lookout for a new band featuring myself and some members of IDN.
