The Skinny: For our last installment of the SOTU ’07 viderviews we have a nice lil one lined up with This Is Hell guitarist Rick Jimenez. In a noisy cafeteria just next to the Kool Haus venue in Toronto, Canada, we caught up with the band and subsequently spoke to the hardcore axe-man in brief. Rick was a super-nice dude and gave us some great insight into the band’s hardcore roots, their split 7 inch with Toronto’s own Cancer Bats, and how stoked he was to be hitting up Europe soon after the band’s SOTU dates ended.
Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
