Retribution, Inc.

A Chapbook by

Retribution, Inc. is a hardcore band struggling on the club circuit.Shortly after their guitar player leaves for Florida to attendrecording school, they get a call from Brackard's Point's mostprestigious venue, The Electra Complex, to open for Your Kid's OnFire--a national act currently touring to support their newmajor-label release.

The race to find a stand-in guitar player becomes desperate, andthey must choose between Joey Donnatello, a virtuoso with a massiveego, and Ernie Shiel, whose skills eclipse even Joey's, but hisimage is wrong for the part--and he has a secret: his hands bleedevery time he plays.

Chuck, the bass player and singer, doesn't want Joey.

Mark, the drummer, doesn't want Ernie.

Apathy becomes anger, and anger turns to violence, with deception,betrayal, and manipulation running rampant through every action,every word. Chuck and Mark see their band tearing itself apart infront of their eyes, as each does what he believes is for the goodof the band.

Someone must give in, if they are to do the show--which is drawingever closer. A decision must be made, but is there one that isright--that could preserve their humanity without destroying thatwhich they have built, or are they doomed to become like all thosebands they despise, run by greed and ambition rather than words andmusic?

There is blood on their hands, and not all of it is Ernie's...
