LACKEY DIE: Self-titled: 7” EP

Sep 07, 2010

According to the liner notes, Lackey Die was Charlottesville, Virginia’s first hardcore band, forming circa 1982 and managing to survive until 1986. Collected here are two demos, the first recorded in Richmond in 1984 and the second recorded in 1986 at Don Zientara’s legendary Inner Ear Studios. The music’s fast, tight, and very much of its time. The recordings are quite good considering the most recent one is twenty-four years old. Nice bit of history here.
