On January 19, 1991, nearly 3000 purveyors of New York Hardcore would cram into the venue formerly known as Studio 54 in NYC to thrash away to a line-up of bands collectively billed as the Superbowl of Hardcore IV. Atop the bill was NYHC’s forever crucial Agnostic Front, directly supported by next wave phenoms Sick of it All and Gorilla Biscuits.

The performances were captured by director George Seminara for what would turn out to be one of the most celebrated Hardcore documents of the time, Live in NYC ’91. More recently referred to simply as the “In-Effect video,” the long out of print VHS tape and highly bootlegged Live in NYC ’91 showcases three of NYC’s most intense and ferocious bands in their prime while telling the story of a complex, and ever-changing scene via exclusive interview footage with members of AF, SOIA and GB, plus representatives of Cro-Mags, Murphy’s Law and Nuclear Assault, in addition to numerous NYHC scene stalwarts.
