RIYL: JFA, U.S. Bombs, Gang Green, Adolescents, Poison Idea, OFF! & Slapshot
Loud Ones formed in 1983 on the flat bottom of Freddie‘s vert ramp in Dighton, MA. Skate rats playing skate rock. Played lots of parties, shows and recorded a demo tape that was bootlegged to death and ended up in boom boxes on the decks of ramps all over the country. Our reputation proceeded us.
Pro models, bad habits & a bunch of years, the Loud Ones are back. Pure skate rock. Pad up, drop in…
