BEDLAM (Buy CDs by this artist)
(Total) Bedlam (Buy Our) 1984
Lost in Space EP (Buy Our) 1986

Hot'n'snotty Black Flagish hardcore with a regional outlook. In addition to a vituperative (and not inarticulate) assault on MTV, the East Coast band turns its sights on local issues, giving the full buzzsaw treatment to "New Jersey: Chemical Dump State" and "Dioxin"; elsewhere, they mug the Flintstones (twice) and set a torch to Elvis the Elder's "Burning Love."
