Crumbsuckers: Life of Dreams (LP - 1986)

Long Island's CRUMBSUCKERS spearheaded the mid eighties amalgamation of Thrash and Punk / Hardcore principles to define the Crossover genre. The band formed as a quartet in 1983 playing New York's A7 club and cutting a demo that June entitled 'The Crumbsucker Cave'. Vocalist Chris Notaro was ex-KRACKDOWN. CRUMBSUCKERS made an immediate scene impact with the 1986 debut 'Life Of Dreams', produced by Norman Dunn and engineered by Mike Marciano being released by Combat in the USA and Music For Nations subsidiary Rough Justice in the UK. Guitarist Robbie Koebler departed after recording 1988's 'Beast On My Back' and was replaced by CARNIVORE's Mark Piovanelli. The group also replaced original vocalist Chris Notaro with Joe Haggerty from ZERO HOUR for European touring during 1988 but eventually settled on the unknown Craig Allen.
Despite having forged a commendable reputation for themselves in late 1989 CRUMBSUCKERS became HEAVY RAIN in an attempt to pursue a more Hard Rock style. Lenihan went on to forge shock S&M Metal merchants the GENITORTURERS and vampire rockers VASARIA. Haggerty joined Arizona's KNUCKLEHEAD. The band's rhythm section of bassist Gary Meskil and drummer Dan Richardson joined heavyweights PRO-PAIN as other members founded HEAVY RAIN. Richardson later joined LIFE OF AGONY for their 1997 album 'Soul Searching Sun' and subsequently recorded two albums with STEREOMUD, a band unit in league with the STUCK MOJO credited bass player Corey Lowery and ex-LIFE OF AGONY guitarist Joey Z. Gary Meskil honoured his former act on the August 2003 PRO-PAIN album 'Run For Cover' with a re-worked version of 'Just Sit There'.
Ex-CRUMBSUCKERS guitarist Chuck Lenihan bounced back in the Spring of 2005 with a Tampa, Florida based outfit entitled GLITTER GUNS.CRUMBSUCKERS, singer Chris Notaro, guitarist Chuck Lenihan, bassist Gary Meskil and drummer Dan Richardson, joined by PRO-PAIN's Tom Klimchuck on second guitar, returned for a reunion show on August 3rd 2006 at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City to mark the 20th anniversary of their 'Life Of Dreams' album. CRUMBSUCKERS, utilising PRO-PAIN drummer J.C. Dwyer, announced February 2007 European tour dates partnered with THE ACCUSED, EXTREME NOISE TERROR and DRILLER KILLER.
