Whatever became of Felix from Life's Halt? Right here....

When I first moved to LA in 1997 Felix Reyes was one of the first people I befriended. I believe Life's Halt were pretty much starting out at that point. I do remember going to some of their practices when Nate played drums, and one time we rode our bicycles up and down Venice Beach putting up LH stickers on any inanimate object we could.
Life's Halt eventually blew up and put out a few records, did a couple tours, or more. They split up in 2001 I think. Noel went on to play in Annihilation Time, Jon and Charlie have been in a number of bands, and Felix played in a couple as well. Then he moved away, started a family.
But, as time went on he got the itch to play again, and has a new band called Big Crux. Sounds more San Pedro than Seattle. But I think this was where he was bound to end up, since he talked a lot about the Minutemen way back when.

Alright, working on the print version at the moment. Should be interesting, and it's definitely diverse in its coverage. Interviews include Total Abuse, Glass Candy, Secret Society of the Sonic Six, Gary Panter, Timebombs, and more. Check back at least by the end of this month for an update.

Went to the Timebombs / Dry Rot / Nomos / The Men show at the Unity Church in Long Beach last weekend. Awesome night the whole way through. Best hardcore show I've been to in some time. The whole line up was solid.

Cülo, and the School Jerks are coming through California in February. I hope to attend a couple of their shows. I hear the Fullerton show should be amazing. More details will be posted as I get them.

Within the next week I'll post my top records of the past year. Nothing to lose sleep over, but you know...
