Out of the ashes of nothing in particular, not really
a revival of anything, and not claiming allegiance to any stodgy
point of view, The Third Degree is rather quite an original band
in a rather rehashed market. They're punk, and aside from a rather
healthy affinity towards skateboarding, their style of music is
not geared toward some predefined mold, but is rather the logical
result of three active participants in the Orange County, CA punk/hardcore
scene whose rich history is known worldwide.
How active ask these participants you ask? How's this for a resume
for these three. Current and past members of : Outspoken, Speak
714, Triceratops, Lost Generation, The Bastard Squad, Blackspot,
Caste, The Suppression Swing, Collateral Damage, Chorus of Disapproval,
The Piccolo Petes, and Mike V.& The Rats. Just to name a few.
After their debut EP they went on to record a full length entitled
"Concrete Warriors" which was released by Livewire Records
in 2000. They disbanded sometime in 2002 right around the same time
that guitarist, Jason Hampton, formed "The Rats" with
professional skateboarder Mike Vallely.
