Offering as lead singer for the vintage NY hardcore clothing the Cro-Mags and roadie for the legendary Poor Brains, Both Worlds vocalist John Joseph offers quite an extraordinary resumé to his credit. Prior to the 1998 launch of the debut full-length, the music group (which also contains guitarist A.J. Novello, bassist Eddie Coen, and drummer Pokey) released an EP in 1996 entitled Beyond No Gravity (around the Another World label). Opening slot machines on cross-country trips for famous brands the Misfits, Helmet, and Existence of Agony quickly followed, assisting the group to develop tighter musically and enhance their stage display. After being authorized to Roadrunner, Both Worlds installed with respected maker Michael Barbiero (Soundgarden, CIV, etc.), who dealt with the studio tasks for his or her debut, Memory space Rendered Visible. Supporters planning on a Cro-Mags Component Two sound could be disappointed, since BW combines their hardcore root base with melodicism and much more conventional singing.
