"Bio Quote"

"When people talk about ska music, they probably think of band geeks and trombones. The Hardcore Crayons would like to wipe that thought from your feeble mind. This Minneapolis band replaces the horn section with psychedelic guitar riffs, tripped out bass lines and borderline pop vocal hooks... " -MN Ska

Hardcore Crayons has a large array of influential artists, both old and new, of whom include Primus, Dub Trio, Bad Brains, Fugazi, King Tubby and Soul Coughing, to name a few. Elements of these artists seem to seep their way out at times during the writing process. What is eventually created by this Minneapolis trio is truly a unique, energetic, and inspiring experience. Hardcore Crayons can and will change from eerie, dub grooves, with dubbed out snare, delayed, psychedelic guitar riffs, thumpin, deep bass, to harsh, bob-your-head-cause-you-just-can't-help-it metal. The songs these three write aren't constrained to a particular style. Hardcore Crayons writes what they want... and what they want, is awesome.
