Rest in pieces-s/t 7"

I know I don't post on here much these days so it's always sweeter that whenever I do that it's a big item that's been on my wants list forever. This is one I've let slide over the years and it's increased in value. If I had bit the bullet years ago it would have been cheaper but I'm not grumbling especially since this copy is mint. Quite something for a record that came out in 1985 on Icarus records. This is classic raw and in your face NYHC long before the likes of Biohazard and 25 ta life came along and made it a dirty term. This was the first release from the band that featured Armand from Sick of it all and would go on to do two albums (the classic'my rage' and the awesome but more metallic 'under my skin') Bloody awful cover art though...but that still doesn't stop me being stoked to finally add this to my collection. It reminds me how much I still love 80's NYHC.
