Mid Youth Crisis from Melbourne, Australia formed in late 1993 initially under the name Downfall, before changing their name to One Inch Punch in October 94. The initial line-up was Steve (vocals), Dave (bass), Heath (guitar), Adrian (guitar), and Jay (drums).
Steve had previously been in Steadfast, and Jay had previously been in Providence. Under the name Downfall, they released two demo tapes containing four songs. The second being recorded in April 1994.
In December 1996, guitarist Heath left the band due to personal reasons and was eventually replaced by Trent in March 1997, who had moved to Adelaide to play drums for Price of Silence. While in Adelaide, he also drummed in Buelah's Fix and Unit 1174. Trent had previously played drums in Steadfast with Steve. Having picked up guitar and becoming quite good at it, he returned to Melbourne and commenced playing guitar in M.Y.C.
At the same time the band found out about another One Inch Punch from Europe, who were on the Romeo And Juliet film soundtrack, so they decided to change their name again to Mid Youth Crisis to avoid legal action, as there was plans to tour overseas. The name is also the title track to the album of the same name.
There was another line up change when Trent left the band, and was replaced by Beltsy from hardcore outfit Mindsnare. After two albums, several EPs and singles, and an overseas tour, the band called it a day in 1998. Members went onto new projects, with Adrian joining Blueline Medic, and Jay and Dave on to Identity Theft.
In 2002 the band reformed for two shows in Melbourne at its old stomping ground of the Arthouse, with the one shows being released as a live CD the following year. Two years later, 2004 in February and March, the band reformed once again, this time for shows in Sydney, Melbourne in Adelaide.
The group returned again in 2006 to take part in the Hardcore 2006 Festival at Sydney's Manning Bar Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
