About Me:

Make The Effort was a short-lived Youth Crew Hardcore band from Glasgow, UK who played a bunch of local shows, mostly at a practice studio, recorded one semi-shoddy demo and released a live set bootleg. They probably could have been a lot better if they had tried a bit harder.

Fletch plays in The Sinking Feeling
Dean plays in Bear Arms
Steven plays in Slowlight and runs Struggletown Records
Liam makes/eats pizza

Upped my PB for hang power cleans x2 by 12.5kg today. Was it because I was wearing my new Make The Effort t-shirt? Probably. Definitely. #liamhasaposse

Shit yeah. GAINS

I am waaaaaaaay more stoked than I look to be wearing my own band’s merch there’s 20 shirts available and if they sell I’ll be so happy. Selling them at the show for £7 and then £9 posted for any leftovers.

Our last show is on July 3rd with Hounds of Hate, Violent Reaction, No Island & Gunfinger at 13th Note. Fletch is in The Sinking Feeling, Dread, Trial & Error & Injustice, Dean is in Bear Arms, Steven is in Primitive Guilt & Liam is in danger of a heart attack if he doesn’t stop eating pizza every day.

If you can come along to the last show that would be awesome. We’ll have shirts for sale.

This isn’t just a cool/cheesy one line catchphrase to me, it meant a lot to be able to express this through the band even if it was Liam singing it. People will take their own meaning, or none at all - but summing up a hard few years of my life in two words was pretty powerful for me. I guess hardcore can do that, if you let it. It wasn’t really for anyone else, which is pretty much why it needs to end soon.

Never thought SDF would validate my songwriting reasoning, but they did!

When you feel so constantly irritated at your peers, you suspect you may have developed nerve damage as a result. “

As a reason/time to write an album.
