for this reissued edition of 'subject to change' dischord have expanded the release from its original ep format into a full-length with the addition of 11-tracks from the band's first demo recorded in 1981 at inner ear studios. most of these songs were later re-recorded and included on the band's 1982 split lp with void. the fall of 1981 found the washington, dc punk scene in one of the first of many fallow periods when a number of active bands broke up at the same time. soa, minor threat, red c and the untouchables had all split up, and this resulted in a number of the musicians reorganizing. mike and ivor from soa formed a new band with alec of the untouchables singing and another wilson high school kid, chris bald, on bass. they called themselves 'the faith' and played their first show at hb woodlawn high school in november '81.
at the end of 1982, eddie (also a former member of the untouchables) joined faith as a second guitarist and six months later they recorded the 'subject to change' 12" ep. though clocking in at less than 14 minutes, this record was hugely important to the people here in dc and to others around the country and the world that were interested in the music here.
