A crucial collection of ALL known recordings from Syracuse’s legendary 80s hardcore punk pioneers: The Catatonics! Blistering, intense, raging American Hardcore Power! Includes the holy grail “Hunted Down” 7” (originally released in 1984), compilation tracks, early demos, live recordings all remastered by Brad Boatright from the original tapes + a comprehensive 12 page booklet with liner notes, photos, and more. The Catatonics were Syracuse and Central New York’s first hardcore punk band. Besides pioneering the original 1981/1982 Syracuse Hardcore scene, their classic Hunted Down 7" EP is considered one of the first hardcore thrash/metal crossover releases, right up there with COC or DRI, and remains a sought-after (and pricey) collector's item 30+ years after its release. Often compared to Jerry's Kids, SSD, Negative Approach and even Slayer, The Catatonics weren't followers or imitators, more like period contemporaries. **This cult reissue was originally released on Record Store Day 2022 and sold out immediately. This Neon Green vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies.
