Indifference - s/t 7"

Indifference from Staten Island seems mostly known for being 'that other band' from a split 7" they did with Indecision in 1997. But before that split 7" they did a demo (which I do not have) and a self-titled 7". That 7" was released on Struggle Records & Gus Records in 1996, both also from Staten Island. Soundwise Indifference is not too far removed from Indecision, typical chunky 90s hardcore with shouted vocals. Excellent stuff, definitely give it a chance.

Needless to say, on the Struggle Records flyer that came with my copy, it mentions they only do t-shirts in XL... And then people chuckle when they see pics of 90s shows with kids wearing oversized shirts... That's all there was!

Guitarist Sam Peralta was also the guy behind City Lights Records, who co-released their split 7" with Indecision. In any case, he also played in bands like Big Wheel, Circle K and Murdock. Right now he's an independent filmmaker and with some friends was working on a Staten Island hardcore docu. I don't know if that's still happening tho, but here's the trailer:
