Born in 1981 in Detroit, MI, Negative Approach was the undisputed champ of Midwestern hardcore in the early to mid-'80s. Led by John Brannon's hoarse wail, with O.P. Moore on drums, and brothers Rob and Graham McCulloch playing guitar and bass respectively, the band concocted an extreme sound devoid of frills. Their classic LP, "Tied Down," is still considered paramount by most hardcore fans new and old. LP includes a coupon for a free download of the entire album in MP3 format.
