finally released after many, many years of waiting.....a highly significant release in dc hardcore punk history. these six songs capture rites of spring in its earliest stages. once the band started playing out, the songs gained velocity and intensity (see the 7-minute plus version of 'end on end' that closes their lp), but many of the elements that defined their music - frenzied energy, sharp melodies, and introspective lyrics - were already very much in place. the release has been mastered from the original tapes and is presented exactly as it was on those cassettes in 1984 complete with the tape collages and assorted audio-graffiti. recorded april 1984 at inner ear studios by don zientara and produced by ian mackaye.
