DAG NASTY: Dag with Shawn: LP

Mar 03, 2011

These nine songs were recorded before Dag Nasty’s 1986 record Can I Say? with the band’s original singer Shawn Brown at the helm. After the band went through a lineup change, these tracks were shelved and have appeared only as a bootleg. Although all nine songs appear on Can I Say, these versions are rougher with more defined back ups. Brown’s vocals bring gruffness to the band’s signature melodic sound that is unprecedented in their discography. I’m a fan of the band’s first two albums, but I don’t go too far with melodic hardcore, and I wasn’t sure this was going to be essential, but I’m glad I took the plunge.
