Post-BURN 90s funky post hardcore act ORANGE 9MM (Revelation Records) feat. Chaka Malik, Chris Traynor, and Davide Gentile and Larry Gorman has launched their new Instagram profile and it’s an obvious teaser of their return, reissues or possible live shows. Here’s what they’ve posted so far. Read up and scroll down to see some cool official and live clips in the good old VHS quality.
Here’s the insert photo for our first ep on @revelationrecords I remember telling @pizzatyrant that I had a new band after Burn broke up in 1994. He asked us to record anything we could to see if we’d be good for Rev. We did 3 songs all instrumental and joined the label after sending Jordan the instrumentals and getting his blessing. This ep is one of my (Chaka) favorites because it was such a tough time and I needed to get some thoughts/emotions out. Much respect and love to you who reads this. 💎🌹💎 #orange9mm #revelationrecords
@ct3guitar and I – @ghost_decibels were both just dealing with band breakups and wanted to do something tied to nyhc but that also included some non punk influences. Our favorite communal bands at that time were Tribe, Screaming Trees, and Smashing Pumpkins. I’d go to Chris’s house or vice versa and we’d talk about and listen to music before peeping ideas that Chris or I had for songs. The rhino cover #image is another by my dad who’s also responsible for the image on the back of the first @burnnyhc seven inch. This ep came together rather quickly in many ways. Lyrics were written the day of recording in most cases. Shout out to Don Fury who did our ep as well as many crucial records by bands like @agnosticfrontnyc @youthcrew88 @burnnyhc @civ_gb @sickofitallnyc @madballnyc @qsnyc etc 🙌🏾🔥💎
Orange 9mm, New York’s hardcore rhythm outfit is a freshly formed blend of past and future that is raw, fierce, confident, eloquent, relevant, beautiful…
Rising from the charred ruins of Burn – also on Revelation – Chaka Malik brings to Orange 9mm a unique stage persona, vocal style and smart lyrics. Guitarist Chris Traynor and drummer Larry Gorman, both former members of New York’s Fountainhead, and bassist Davide Gentile complete the sound self-described as a result of being “happy and pissed off at the same time and playing at that moment.“
