RIP Reid English

A kind fella just let us know via email the sad news that Reid English of the legendary Toronto hardcore band Sudden Impact shuffled off this mortal coil recently. They were another highly influential band for us back when we were starting out. I remember the day me and Jordy-Boy took the Greyhound into Winnipeg in 1985 and picked up their "No Rest From the Wicked" LP along with a little LP called "Torment in Fire" by a then-brand-new band called Sacrifice. It's was one of the few records from the era that truly stood the test of time. Gonna crank it tonight and Get Bent. RIP Reid.
