No Cause for Concern? Issue #6 | December 1982 | Page 5 | Frigidair III
This review is going way back and is really out of date but once again we decided to put it in anyway. In case you missed it, Frigidaire III was a benefit held at the Roxy on September 17th and 18th to kick off the CKCU funding drive. Two Toronto bands, ZEROPTION and BREEDING GROUND, played both nights and on Friday there was BUGS HARVEY OSWALD and U.X.B. and on Saturday SOMETHING RED and CIVIL TERROR played. I only made it to Saturday's show and that night all bands were good but I found Breeding Ground, the last band on, a little too artsy and their set seemed to drag on forever. The first band, SOMETHING RED, had really improved since I last saw them, those guys definitely have potential. CIVIL TERROR played lots of fast fast hardcore to the delight of some but to the chagrin of all those new wave fans (special mention should be given to Vig for playing guitar for them, new line up has Tim Mech on guitar and Russell Joyce on bass).
ZEROPTION were excellent even though they only have three band members which made for a visually unexciting performance but their driving music more than made up for it.
Overall, the show was a success -- packed the place both nights -- and brought in about $1,000 for the station. At the time of writing this, CKCU has finished their funding drive and came up well over their goal. Now let's hope everyone comes through with their pledges.
