Groundwork were a sXe hardcore band that formed in 1991 and broke up in 1994. They hailed from Tucson, AZ and left a pretty big impression on the scene in the 3 years that they were around. At the time that I started listening to them I was too was nailed to the X and even though I held no specific bias towards this band or that band based on them being a sXe band, I always could appreciate the fact that there too were people playing music in the scene who chose not to include alcohol and drugs in their daily lives. They were extremely emotional and heavy. With only 22 songs released in total compiled from various 7"s, a split with Unbroken and an LP, their final release was a discography CD on Bloodlink Records. When Groundwork finally called it quits their members didn't stop carrying the torch. Two bands sprung from the ashes and were just as pivotal in helping define the scene. Those bands were Absinthe and Four Hundred Years. Bands who I will be blogging about in the near future. For now, enjoy two songs from their LP "today we will not be invisible nor silent."
