The 4-drummered RADWASTE presents its debut LP, recorded in 1988 but never before issued. It's a compelling document from the Los Angeles post-punk scene that delivered into the world Jane's Addiction, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Thelonious Monster. Formed from the ashes of URINALS / 100 FLOWERS and the Savage Republic spinoff 17 PYGMIES, Radwaste employs a "drum corps" (KEVIN BARRETT, JAY JACKSON, ROB MALONE, DEBBIE SPINELLI) inspired by the infectious beat and huge sound of the marching band phenomenon of South Los Angeles high schools. Interlocking drum patterns, along with the aggressive and direct songwriting of guitarist/vocalist MICHAEL KORY and bassist/vocalist JOHN TALLEY-JONES results in an appealing and unique mix of pop, punk, funk and soul. Produced by VITUS MATARE (Minutemen, Urinals, Slovenly, The Last, Trotsky's Icepick) with preproduction assistance from KEITH LEVINE (Public Image Ltd.). Packaged in gatefold jackets. Edition of 300 copies.
