REAL ENEMY "Life with the Enemy" LP
Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA Real Enemy staked their claim as the pioneers of Hardcore in the Three Rivers. After seeing The Necros, Faith and The Meatmen in Washington DC on March 6th 1983, and realizing that Hardcore had to come to their hometown Real Enemy formed and played their first show just 53 days later. Sharing stages with a veritable who's who of 80's American Punk bands Ð J.F.A., Husker Du, Youth Brigade, Toxic Reasons, Channel 3, The Necros among others Ð Real Enemy burned strong and fast, breaking up after barely 6 months as a band. Before half of the band reformed as Pittsburgh's best known export of 80s Hardcore Ð Half Life Ð they left behind a legacy of one cassette, released on a newly minted label: Mind Cure Records. 30 years later Mind Cure (the label) is back with this restored and remastered version of "Life With the enemy" expanded to include live material recorded at CBGBs. Featuring original cover art and a poster sized fold-out insert packed with photos, flyers and extensive liner notes from Real Enemy and Half Life founding member and Gearhead Magazine and Records head honcho Mike LaVella.
