WTF? Onno passed away?


Just saw on the internets that I Scream/Strength Records owner Onno Cromag passed away. So bummed. He was such a great guy to talk to about hardcore and punk. He loved and supported all great music.





Good punk/HC/oi shows coming up. Check out http://myspace.com/refuseresistband

TJ Welch called me this afternoon to relay the sad news. Onno was an awesome guy and was the first person to give my band a chance, provided us with opportunities and support from the beginning. I consider myself fortunate to have called him friend. He will be missed.

Ahhhh, I didn't know this was you. I always thought it was your drummer.

He was very nice to RR and would give me feedback on the new stuff. A true lover of music.

Hey Shawn! Hope all is well.

Yeah, it's funny, Onno helped a LOT of bands in Boston........ from 4,000 miles away.

I can say, without hyperbole, that my life was richer having known him.

I remember chatting with Jay from Pittbull on Soulseek about old timers and he was talking about Onno. Probably the only time I actually had a chat about the guy, other than that just reading things & seeing his name everywhere. Lost a good dude who put out a lot for a long time.

RIP




A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.

Im amazed by how many people knew Onno. I knew he helped tons of bands, but didnt know how well known he was. I met him a few times and he was always so nice! Great guy... RIP!

I wonder if Roger Miret is still going to keep going with the label he and Onno recently started.
