CAUSE FOR ALARM: Nothing Ever Dies (1982 99): CD

Back in the day, these guys were one of New York’s best. They released a smoking debut EP, then faded into obscurity until they reformed a few years ago. As this “greatest hits” package so painfully illustrates, they shoulda left well enough alone because, aside from the few tracks from that debut, this stuff sucks in ways that would make the Cro‑Mags envious.
