GOVERNMENT ISSUE: The Punk Remains the Same: CDEP

Five tunes, recorded live in their prime circa 1982-83. Seems a measly amount of tuneage for a CD, but, apparently, it is also on 7”, so it makes more sense. If you dig ‘em, you’ll definitely dig this, but if you don’t know who they are, you seriously gotta go back and catch up with this venerable hardcore band’s back catalog. I suggest you start with the Legless Bull EP, collected on Dischord’s Year in Seven Inches compilation, or the Complete History Vol. 1 collection on Dr. Strange and progress forward. Oh, and yes, a version of “Sheer Terror” is on here.
