Sketched from life. Rainy Wainwright, from the legendary Stoke on Trent, UK hardcore group Discharge, plays the piano in the backstage area of Fryfogle's bar in London, Ontario, Canada in 1983. Discharge's angry cold-war protest songs influentially solidified the "hardcore" sound, merging punk rock with heavy metal at a time when there was almost fanatical animosity between each. What does the Discharge bass player, famous for his driving and distorted basslines, play when he sits down to tickle the ivories? English Country Garden.
