CRACKERBASH: 1993 - Tin Toy (Empty Recs.)

Crackerbash was three piece power pop punk mayhem out of Portland Oregon. They started in 1988 with Doug Naish on drums, who was replaced by Ted in 1989. They toured extensively through the USA with the likes of fIREHOSE, and also toured Europe with the likes of Girl Trouble. Unfortunately, soon after coming back from a European tour, they decided to call it a day. Sean later formed Junior High and played solo, while Ted and Scott kept on with Satan's Pilgrims, which they had formed in 1992.
Crackerbash released singles on Imp, eMpty, Sub Pop, C/Z, and Simple Machines among others. They had one full lp (self-titled, 1992), and one ep (Tin Toy, 1993). The band and their fans always felt like the recordings never captured the excitement of their frenetic live show. In September of 2005, Crackerbash reunited in their hometown of Portland, OR to play live for the first time in almost 13 years. There were over 2,000 in attendance to see the band along with other early 90s Portland bands-Hazel, Pond, and Sprinkler.
