Rich Gaccione deserves a fucking medal. Just a week ago or so, the fellow music head sent me a message via Instagram, offering up use of his many photos from his time in the Long Island hardcore scene of the '90s. I was lucky enough to play alongside many of the bands from said scene during my time in Black Army Jacket since two of our original members (Chris Russo and Dan Crowell) were both from there, and we always had a great time.
Below are some selects from Rich's treasure trove of '90s LIHC greatness. Also, if you have a collection of old shots from your scene, hit me up!
