Band biography Upload photo
The Crumbsuckers was a New York based punk / thrash metal band that formed in 1982 on Long Island by bass player Gary Meskil in their home town of Baldwin. In the early days they were a party band and played covers from bands such as Minor Threat, Bad Brains and Kraut. They also had several different vocalists who probably took turns singing when it came to shows. In June 1983 the band recorded a demo called "The Crumbsucker Cave" at their rehearsal space with five songs, including a cover of Chubby Checker's "The Twist". The others songs were called "A-OK", "Emil Mauer (You Dick!)", "Kids In My School" and "Don't Like It". During 1983-1984 the songs for their debut album were written. In 1984 they also added Chuck Lenihan as a second guitarist for a more metal sound. The songs of "Life Of Dreams" were written by Gary Meskil and Dave Wynn.
