One thing about having such a close knit community of musicians who experience a widespread spectrum of genres, is that over the years, members from several successful local acts will start to jam out of mutual respect and create something that sounds huge. Bands like The Locusts Have No King, Vultures!, James OL & The Villains, The Magic Hall of Mirrors and Orphan Choir are (or were) all bands comprised of members who were previously (or still are) in other solid local acts.

You can add the new hardcore punk band Repetitions to that list.

Roughly a year in the making, the band was built around some home jamming between legendary punk drummer Sean Boone (The Posers, The Hard Liquors, PFOD) and guitarist Stef Paulton. At the beginning of the year, the rhythm section was completed when Ash Richtig (The Heat Seeking Moisture Missiles, NeanderTHRALL) on bass. After a lengthy search for a female vocalist, the band unexpectedly found a voice from Jay Buston, a vocalist best known as the throat behind PFOD and Clusterfuxx and a member ofย The Posers.

They’ve been using social networking to create a buzz, as punk veterans salivated at the thought of two formers members of The Posers and PFOD would be bringing back the legendary 90’s Windsor hardcore vibe to a new audience, with other musicians who bring experience in newer scenes. They released demos of songs without vocals (prior to Buston joining) and then demos with full vocals once Jay laid some down.

They recently U-Streamed one of their rehearsals, enticing fans to watch their creative process and to see the magical wonder of watching an early session in a band’s career when all the members are still full of the virginal spark of anticipation.

They make their long awaited debut this Saturday April 2ย  at the legendary Coach & Horses (156 Chatham St. West, basement level) opening for local heavyweights Hammerdown and The Heat Seeking Moisture Missiles.
