Tony Foresta (Iron Reagan)
SPB: What is your favorite 1990s artist?
Foresta: I was going to say Avail but it turns out that they actually started in ‘87. Did not know that! Haha. So I'm going to have to go with Spazz. They opened so many doors for me musically with all the splits they did as well their smart yet funny lyrics. It really changed my perspective toward fast and brutal music back then and encouraged me to get into more heavy and crazier stuff as opposed to the more straight forward punk I was listening to at the time. A year and some change after discovering them and listening to them religiously we found out that Spazz was doing a full U.S. tour. It was like the fucking Beatles were coming to me and my friends. We were so excited. My first band was lucky enough to play the Virginia Beach show (also on the bill was His Hero is Gone and Suppression!) and afterwards we ended up following them up the East Coast like they were the fucking Greatful Dead. So many good memories from that time.
