CRUMBSUCKERS “Turn back time: the early years 1983-1985” Double LP + CD out now on FOAD Records!!

The bomb has been finally dropped, CRUMBSUCKERSTurn back time: the early years 1983-1985” 2LP+CD ships now, all preorders have been mailed already! Forget the die-hard splattered vinyl version, it was sold out in less than 1 day, that together with few other FOAD releases (remember Nerorgasmo?) makes it a real record time in our releases’ history. And the black vinyl version is going really fast too, so don’t miss the chance, as it looks equally killer with that side D stylishly silkscreened…

And listening to the final result as it came out on LP all what we can add is that this is one of our favourite FOAD releases to date in our label’s lengthy discography.. if you’re looking for crucial, full on energy 80’s New York Hardcore, then look no further!! This is the most exhaustive, high quality retrospective of the pre-”Life of dreams” recordings, 69 songs including all their Demos (the legendary “Crumbsucker cave” demo 1983, “Charge of the light brigade” Demo 1985 and two unreleased tapes 1983-1984) + a bonus CD with 3 great sounding live sets 1984-85 at CBGB‘s… one opening for the Cro-Mags!  This collection shows the band’s natural evolution from basic, no frills early ’80s Hardcore to the mad thrashing assault that made “Life of dreams” and “B.O.M.B.” two unforgettable lessons of true NYHC crossovered with technical and well delivered Metal. All the stuff included here features their former singer David Brady, and displays embryonic versions of all those anthems that were later re-recorded on their debut masterpiece + a bunch of unreleased tracks!  As usual all the stuff here has been mastered from 1st generation tapes with extreme care and passion by the Hand of Doom @ Toxic Basement Studio, a real guarantee of quality and passion!

Three sided double LP (one side silk-screened featuring the original Taggart’s crumb sucker art) housed in a thick gatefold jacket including rare photos, flyers and liner notes + exclusive artwork by Lucas Kalina.. bonus Live at CBGB CD sealed inside of the gatefold in a 5″ cardboard sleeve. For those who are still not familiar with this mandatory band (shame!) make sure to read this great writeup about their classic debut album “Life of dreams“, it’s the best way to get introduced to their awesome power… quote: “this was like the best of Bad Brains and Exodus rolled into one”!!! And IT’S SO TRUE!
