Battalion of Saints

For those of you into punk/hardcore history this is a decent clip I found of BATS playing somewhere.

A few years ago I had a job washing dishes at this 5 star restaurant in downtown SD called Cafe Cherise. My buddy Jason owned the place and one of the chefs was this guy named George.

George used to crack jokes and fuck around a bit and I thought he seemed a bit different for an older guy that had a pretty posh job. It turns out that George the Chef was the lead singer of the Battalion of Saints. The group is widely recognized as one of the better bands from the hardcore era and all the original memebers are dead except for George.

Needless to say I was stunned. It's a small world out there.
