In early February 2010, Chicago long two vital and longtime contributors to their music sceneEngineer [[Iain Burgess]] is often created with crediting the "Chicago Sound" and recorded just about every Chicago band you can think of in the 1980s.  [[Rick Ponce]] had been playing guitar and attending punk/metal shows consistently from the 1980s until his death.  Both men died of issues related to cancer, R.I.P. Rick and Iain</td>

Although it was recorded in [[1982]], [[Trial By Fire]]'s record was never released at the timeAfter thirty five years [[Alona's Dream Records]] finally gave it a formal release.

Thanks to everyone who helped punkdatabase reach 600 unique pages (for page #500 was the [[Insane War Tomatoes]]).  Pretty damn remarkable when I think about it.  There's still a lot of work to be done, especially with regards to venues and some of the more obscure bands.  Please keep on contributing and lets see if we can hit a cool 1000!  -Gantry

[[John Pierson]] (aka Jughead from [[Screeching Weasel]]) and [[Russ Forster]] did a fantastic podcast on [[Big Black]]'s ''Atomizer'' record.  It has interviews with [[Santiago Durango]], [[Steve Albini]], [[Camilo Gonzalez]] and [[Jeff Pezzati]] on the beginnings of Big Black and how that record came to be.  The ''Jugheads Basement'' podcast previously focused on such groundbreaking 80s Chicago records as [[Naked Raygun]]'s [[Throb Throb]] and Screeching Weasel's ''[[My Brain Hurts]]''.

Trial By Fire record released after 35 years

TBF-1982.jpg

Although it was recorded in 1982, Trial By Fire's record was never released at the time. After thirty five years Alona's Dream Records finally gave it a formal release. The sounds holds up today and could very well have been the first hardcore record from a Chicago band. You'll notice many songs that have been done by other bands, including the famous opener to Naked Raygun's Vanilla Blue. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy from Alona's Dream, you won't regret it.

Podcast on Big Black's Atomizer

BigBlack-Atomizer.jpg

John Pierson (aka Jughead from Screeching Weasel) and Russ Forster did a fantastic podcast on Big Black's Atomizer record. It has interviews with Santiago Durango, Steve Albini, Camilo Gonzalez and Jeff Pezzati on the beginnings of Big Black and how that record came to be. The Jugheads Basement podcast previously focused on such groundbreaking 80s Chicago records as Naked Raygun's Throb Throb and Screeching Weasel's My Brain Hurts.
