Rising from the ashes of early-’80s East Bay punk bands Treason and Teenage Warning, Christ On Parade took the sound in new directions, combining to-the-point political lyrics and an unwavering DIY spirit with a driving hardcore assault. With the support of Maximum Rocknroll’s Tim Yohannan and others in the Bay Area punk scene, the band quickly gained a strong local following. Their debut LP,1985’s Sounds of Nature, was originally released on legendary punk artist Pushead’s Pusmort label (Poison Idea, Septic Death). The liner notes state: “You can’t change anything by waiting for the “revolution” - you have to start living it today, creating a real community amongst the sterility of our modernworld, and eventually the system will wither away.” Christ On Parade can also claim the honor of headlining the first ever show at Berkeley’s long-running 924 Gilman venue.This 19-track CD reissue collects the Sounds Of Nature LP, both the band’s tracks from the Thrasher Skate Rock vol. 3 compilation, the Isn’t Life a Dream EP from 1986 - all long out-of-print - and a previously unreleased Avengers cover. It comes beautifully packaged with the original cover art. Vinyl version to be released by Prank Records.
