Still Breathing

Collapsing Lungs regroup to spread holiday cheer

But the glory days, when Collapsing Lungs prowled a Broward circuit arguably more active than today, remain a cherished memory. Scene veterans remember the band's blazing shows at Squeeze and the Edge in Fort Lauderdale and the Plus Five in Davie.

Nicholas can even look back fondly on the days when the band cozied up to MTV's Headbanger's Balland toured with Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, Ice Cube, Biohazard, House of Pain, and "a very, very young Limp Bizkit," he says.

"Fred Durst was awesome," Nicholas recalls. "He was really into us. We gave him one of our T-shirts, and he wore it on-stage. I kept in touch with Fred for a while. He would call me and say, 'When we make it, we're gonna help you guys.' And we were like, 'Cool. Sounds good. If anything happens with us, we'll help you too.'

"But the band just kind of fell apart," he sighs. "And they're, like, the hugest thing."
