FAITH: Live at CBGB’s: LP

Intense, flailing, and in-your-face. Two sets from a 1981 show opening for Bad Brains. The band was still putting their sound together but the anger was already cemented. “Trapped” and “Confusion” are scorching. Hammered Hulls and Fake Names are the next chapters, but see where it all began. J. Mascis is down with this so you should be too. –Sean Koepenick (Outer Battery, outerbatteryrecords.com)
