Sure, in these complex post-whatever times we sometimes take all the mashing-up and genre-bending of music for granted. But back in 1987, punks were punks and metalheads were metalheads, often with a kind of ferocity that might seem odd now, given our catholic modern tastes and — let’s face it — how hard it can be to tell post-thrash from metalcore these days. So when Dirty Rotten Imbeciles released their influential Crossover album way back when, combining hardcore punk and heavy metal (symbolized on the cover by a newly chromed-over version of their moshing stick-man logo) it was a pretty bold move. Maybe not as bold as going back on tour after having a foot of your colon removed, as guitarist Spike Cassidy has, but bold nonetheless.
