Going Underground Records
WASTED TALENT "Ready to Riot" LP
Essential hardcore punk band from State College, Pennsylvania. Previously heard on The Master Tape Vol.2 and Chainsaw Fanzines: OHMIGOD HARDCORE demo tape. The music is ripping fast, snotty & raw. Very well put together hardcore that exceeds my expectations for a top notch album, especially being that the music and lyrics are equally as good. You will find yourself chanting these tunes after a few listens. Music was Re Mastered from the Original 1/4" Reels and cassette tapes. Featuring the 'Self Rule' demo tape from 1982, 4-track demo from 1982, Live Sept. 15 1982 @ Walnut Building, Live May 5 1983 @ The Hubb, October 21st 1983 basement rehearsal tape, and December 4th 1983 basement Rehearsal tape, all put on vinyl for the first time!! The Band's early influences were Ramones and the Sex pistols and all 1977 wave of British punk, with time the American Hardcore scene soon began to impact their sound playing with bands like Minor Threat, Scream, Deadline, White Cross, Heart Attack, Crucifix, Fang, Necros, No Trend and many more. Members went on to form bands such as Heart Of Darkness, Oblivion, Positive Hate, Unseen Force, 2000 Maniacs, The Big Thing, and many others!! A must for any fans of early 80's Raw hardcore punk! Black Vinyl Limited to 400 copies, Includes a large double sided poster, lyric insert and sticker!
