In most instances, when an amazing band calls it quits, it is unlikely for the disbanded members to go on and create something equal or even close to what made them great the first time around. That being said, there are a few that have moved on and brought some of the most influential music of my generation. Although they may not have had the commercial success that should go along with such a feat, Quicksand is definitely one of those bands. Hailing from two of the most notable New York Hardcore bands of the late 80s (Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits), Walter Schreifels went on to front a group that had a heavy hand in creating a Post-Hardcore moment that many bands to this day still try to emulate. You can add these guys to the “Before Their Time” file.
