The Crusties

The Crusties LP

THE CRUSTIES are a legendary, extremely tight, early/mid 80’s, Milwaukee WI based band known for playing fast aggressive hardcore.

Every time they played, it was obvious these guys were having a blast, but they took their craft very seriously. Practicing several times a week was not uncommon for these guys. Neither was their singers propensity for blowing giant balls of fire out of his mouth at shows!

From 1984 until 1987 THE CRUSTIES played numerous local shows , as well as many neighboring states. They even got a few tours under their belts, traveling the Midwest and Southern United States. They opened for legendary bands like THE CIRCLE JERKS, MEAT PUPPETS, HUSKER DU, SAMHAIN, MDC, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, along with MOTORHEAD and THE BODEANS. After THE CRUSTIES opened up for THE DEAD KENNEDY’S, Jello Biafra remarked how THE CRUSTIES were a breath of fresh air, when compared to what they had seen on the road that year. In 1987, with their singer moving to Austin TX, THE CRUSTIES went on hiatus. They managed to get together at least once a year, to play shows when their singer would come back to visit. So they never really broke up.

Now, Beer City is proud to bring you THE CRUSTIES on their first and only full length album: THE CRUSTIES – Crustunes.
