1992 Framework interview (Tension building zine)
Framework was young militant vegan straight edge band who debuted on the scene with a three song 7-inch(Conquer the World records) before hardcore legends Earth Crisis put the movement on the map. Framework shared more than beliefs with Earth Crisis it was almost the same band as the all out war 7-inch.
Scott Crouse and Ian Edwards who still play in Earth Crisis, Ben Reed (EXC, God is I) and Mike Riccardi (ExC, Path, Another Victim) were the musical core for this band. In the beginning Ben played guitar and sang. They picked up their vocalist Shane Durgee after his band Oversight(who had a lost 7-inch also on Conquer the World records) called it quits.
On shameless plug note Shane Durgee recently did the cover art for my short story collection Screams from a Dying World.
