FINAL WARNING: Demonstration 1983: 7”

Mar 29, 2016

Lightning fast hardcore from 1983 (duh), out of Portland, Ore., released on vinyl for the first time in 2015. Final Warning has an obvious Discharge influence, but with a decidedly American bent. If there was an early ‘80s comp called This Is Portland Not L.A., Final Warning would have been on it. A once long-lost hardcore punk demo, it’s now received a proper and deserved vinyl release, just thirty-two years later.
