Recorded in 2002 on our first tour. The band riotgun couldn't make it and gave us their spot. So we went out on the road with San Diego's Mother Russia.

Burnt Ramen was an all-ages venue in Richmond, CA. It was the center of the East Bay punk scene in that era. But the neighborhood was beyond bad. It felt like you could be killed by the train tracks and no one would ever find you.

The set is from a Saturday afternoon show. Beer was drunk, insults and encouragement were yelled as we tore through a very short set.

Special thanks to the guys who ran Burnt Ramen and recorded this for us. It's a little sloppy, but we like it that way.

Scaredycat Los Angeles, California

Speed-of-light spazz-core from Los Angeles, CA.

We started in 2001 releasing our debut album and frightening audiences up and down the state of California until 2003. We reformed in 2010 after a 7-year break and are currently killing it.

"Scaredycat are a genius of a band, with fast, pacemaker-blowing hardcore parts, stop and start time changes. Total buffoonery! Must be heard to be believed!"

Track Name: (Where's The Nearest) Wal-Mart?
(You) Don’t participate
We should segregate
(You) Don’t participate
Gotta separate

You always pick up on it last
You can’t begin to think fast
Track Name: Whataguy
Spit you out, your life's in doubt
Come on step up, I want to cut you down

Get away, you really can't stay
You're such a man, I will see this through

Now's your chance to chase hot pants
Come stake your claim, you're such a fucking waste

It's Friday night, let's start the fight
You're bigger than me, but I will see this through

Gotta little dog maybe trapped in a fog
But I'm tougher than you
I'm skinny and I'm weak, maybe past my peak
But I'm tougher than you
Hide under my bed, sometimes wish I was dead
But I'm tougher than you
Track Name: You're Your Biggest Fan
You're standing and looking
Looking at someone
No one feels a thing

Your biggest decision
Isn't what I'm thinking
'Cause you're so busy
Standing and looking

You're your biggest fan
Always in demand
You're your biggest fan

You're your biggest fan
Head stuck in the sand
You're your biggest fan

You're biggest decision
Isn't what I'm thinking
Track Name: Rambis
I remember drinking to stay straight
We kept it moving always one step ahead of fate
What does it feel like looking down on me?
It must be funny watching me try to keep the beat

No time for sad songs or complacency
I’ll keep on pushin’ you know HB made me see
I’m the one with the voice that brings the sound
From the crowd of stoics knocking all you motherfuckers down

How’s it feel to play the role?
You like it, but we’ll expose your game
You’ll never win, you’ve lost your way
So fuck it, we never were the same

You can’t get in me take your chance to walk away
Track Name: Relaxin' At The Mayfair
The Mayfair will rock you

Got my speed, my pin, my tinfoil
I'm relaxin' at The Mayfair

Day two
Don't try this at home
Track Name: Existentialist Stomp
You spend your time
Wasting mine
That's it for you
Track Name: How Many Times?
You try to quit,
The problems in your life won't go away

Than at first offer
You say fuck it
Maybe I'll just do this

One more time
Two more times
One more line

Running around in circles all night
Forget it, I don't want to do this anymore
Track Name: Kip Kinkel
Line up
Fall out
Clean your sheet
C'mon boy!

Don't want to go
There's nothing there
For me to fucking see

Always the same
Mice that are blind
Looking for their cheese

I know what I'll find
No ones impressed
Still you play your little game

Sounds like Kip Kinkel
But wait what's that?
My fist your face

Kip Kinkel
Track Name: Your Kingdom Willl Crumble
Why do you think you always know the truth?
One day you'll slip and I will be there watching
And smiling to myself when you fall

You get what you give and choose
And it's nice to see you lose

You make no difference
But I do
Take your best shot
Track Name: One Minute Cleaning
This bullshit clouds what's in my mind
It's dark we'll leave it all behind
This feeling's cold noise is the blanket
I refuse so freeze while we wreck it

We won't keep the peace
Rise from underneath
Keep it short and sweet

Kill the apathy
It's for life, you see
Feel the need for speed


Trash your mental state
Wreck it while you wait
Accept your hardcore fate
