Classic early hardcore from Connecticut. The Hendex 1982 demo (my favorite stuff by this band) sounds like 2 different recording sessions, and 5 of the songs are repeated. All of it is excellent, and the sound quality is great. Then of course we have the legendary God, Guts, Guns 7", which is considered by many to be the best punk record to ever come out of Connecticut. No argument from me. This is a quality sounding rip, taken from the Lost & Found CD. Next up is the s/t LP (recorded with a different line-up) which seems to constantly get a bad rap. I like it. Also included are the tracks from the Big City: Nice & Loud and Connecticut Fun compilations. I'm pretty sure this is most of the band's output from 1982-1985. They also had a version of the song Violence on the Empty Skulls tape from 1984, but since there are 3 different versions of that song already here, i decided not to include it. Enjoy.
Mike Hammond "Bones" - vocals
Kenny Peterson - guitar
E.J. Marquardt - bass
Bill Knapp - drums
Chip Moody replaced Bill Knap on drums in 1983, and played with the band until '86.
Kenny Peterson and Mike Hammond went on to form 76% Uncertain, and both Bill Knap and Chip Moody played drums in the band during different periods.
Bill Knapp also played for Reflex From Pain.
I have no info on the C.I.A. lineup after 1983. So if anyone can contribute any info, please leave a comment.
