MORAL DECAY: Rebels Without a Cause: LP

Not to be confused with more recent bands using the name, this Moral Decay was a Westside/Eastside Los Angeles hardcore unit that burned bright in the early 1980s and included, at varying times, members of Smog Marines, Angry Samoans, Black Jax, Thee Undertakers, Crankshaft, and others. Collected here are eighteen tunes from their 1982 and 1983 demos, plus their tracks from Smoke 7 Records’ Sudden Death compilation (which was their only official output prior to this release), all delivered up nice ‘n’ raw, with liner notes and a couple of full-sized flyer reproductions. So, so fuggin’ stoked this is out in the world. –Jimmy Alvarado (Puke N Vomit, pukenvomitrecords.com)
