AGGRAVATED ASSAULT NYC: B4 Core: The Punk Years: CD-R

Before the nasty hatemongering band Aggravated Assault, there was this unrelated Aggravated Assault, a NYHC outfit with Doug Beans from Murphy’s Law on drums. This release is primarily of lost demos from way back in the day, including a Don Fury Studio session from 1985. There are also tracks from 1986 and from the present day. This raw demo captures pure NYHC when that form was in its infancy. The tracks pack quite a punch, showcasing a group whose present-day return is a much-welcomed surprise. –Art Ettinger (Self-released, aggravated.assault.nyc@gmail.com)
