VOORHEES/KILL YOUR IDOLS SPLIT, CLEAR PURPLE



Voorhees/Kill Your Idols split brought together two bands that shared their love of all things Negative Approach. I have a real soft spot for both of these bands for different reasons, Voorhees were a stable part of the non metallic hardcore scene from the early to late 90s and basically kept it real for a lot of folk that were sick of the former, they are also friends and a great band to. KYI on the other hand will always remind me of my first trip to the USA and my first gig there. Me and a friend had flown 7 1/2 hours and hadn't slept in god knows how many, when on arriving at Newark airport we were picked up by our host Chris Zusi (Floorpunch, Release etc) who then proceeded to take us straight to a gig in New Jersey at the melody Inn, New Bruswick. On the bill were Breakdown, One Sided War and KYI. They were the first band we got to see on arrival in the US and left a mark on both of us for being excellent. I think at that particular time they had only released a demo. Anyway back to this record, Indecison Records have excelled with this release, an all round great looking item. The cover is a fold apart that has one side of the Voorhees mask and the other the KYI face and splits down the middle. The vinyl is a light clear purple and the dust sleeve has been decorated with halloweenesque stamps. Another notable bit of info is that both bands cover a couple of each others songs.

Damn one of the best split 7" Indecision released at the time.

I also love the KYI-Nerve Agents split on Mankind Records

totally agree, I love the covers that each band do of the others songs. Yeah that NA and KYI split is a good one to.

I wonder if this was a special halloween event version?

It wasn't done for Halloween, we just stamped the 50 copies that we got from Indecision to make ones you bought from Voorhees different to the rest. Most have one of each different stamp on them but a few copies (probably about five) have multiple stamps of just the skeleton or bat or ghost etc. due to Dave Wynne fucking about and being a retard.
