Gorilla Biscuits (Connection X #3)

Connection X was a straight-edge, “socialist” fanzine edited by 2 members of ‘Feeding The Fire’ – Roger ‘NBH’ (‘Nothing But Human’; bass) and Rob Franssen (vocals). They were from Kerkrade, The Netherlands. I believe they did 4 issues in total…

Didn’t get to see #1 (featured ‘Chain Of Strength’, ‘Unit Pride’, ‘Our Gang’ & ‘Time For Change’), #2 or #4 as far as I can remember. I just found this 3rd issue containing interviews with ‘Man Lifting Banner’, ‘Gorilla Biscuits’ & ‘Last Straw’ (Nor). It also had some columns (on sXe, death-sentence, idolatry, bio-industry), other info-bits (permaculture, food-additives), a German scene-report, reviews (demos/zines) and a few pics.

The editors of Connection X and Crossblock (Marc Herbertz) also did a compilation-tape: Coming Back To Haunt You (came with a 20-page booklet).

‘Gorilla Biscuits’ was a straight-edge band from New York City with Walter ‘Wally’ Schreifels (guitar; also bass in ‘Youth Of Today’ & ‘Project X’), Alex Brown (guitar; Schism fanzine; R.I.P.), Luke Abbey (drums), Arthur Smilios (bass) & Anthony Civorelli (vocals). This interview with Walter was done by Michiel Bakker (‘Man Lifting Banner’ vocalist) after the band had ended their European tour (1989).
