Personality Crisis!

Finally got myself an account at the Punk HC Tracker torrent site and found Personality Crisis’ Creatures For Awhile, one of the greatest Canadian hardcore punk records ever!!!! It was hard to find in Montreal when it came out in 1983, but I found it and listened to it practically every day for months before it wound up getting warped in the backseat of my Dad’s car back in ’85. I never found it again after that, and none of my friends had taped it so I’m listening to it for the first time in maybe 20 years and just completely blown away by what a great record is. It’s aged beautifully.

If you’ve never heard this before, check out Mrs. Palmer or Twilight’s Last Gleaming for a taste of how great this band were.

      Glad you liked those two. You should really try to get an account at Punk HC Tracker. I think you’ll really like it. It’s maxed out right now, but everyday accounts are deleted so you can eventually get on. There’s tons of stuff available….but none of it major label. Strictly non-RIAA.

      This is a great you link you’ve provided me with! I’ve been to that site a few times, but hadn’t checked it since downloading this album. Good article.

        hey, johnny…

        here’s a site that’s dedicated to documenting the mtl hc/punk scene of the 80s. actually you should contribute to the site with all your anecdotes, pictures and stuff. you wouldn’t believe how young kids are into the nils, genetic control, scum, fair warning, zykome b etc.

    Over at we also have quite a few pictures & posters from Personality Crisis – and many other Canadian bands – but if you want to contribute at Punk History Canada too – we’d love it!
