Uphold – Constant Use (early 2000s hardcore release from the prairies) — free mp3 download

Former Moline High School teacher Curtis Butterfield fronted this hardcore band from the Illinois/Iowa region throughout the late 90s and early 00s. As his student, I learned to vote with my dollars and my actions. I’ll always be indebted to his service.

This free download is available via SoundCloud. Thanks go to my close friend and super good drummer Steve Maule for giving me his copy. They are very hard to find. Curtis died in 2011 and will never be forgotten.
