HVY DRT ep (1985)


I really can't praise this release highly enough, it just reeks of the OC sound. A band comprising members of the Adolescents and D.I. can't really go wrong. Released by the mighty Savage Beat label in 1985 it only had 6 tracks, but it's quality that counts not quantity.

Frank Agnew on guitar and future D.I. members Steve Garcia and Hedge as the rhythm section, along with Micky on vocals and Alfred Cruz on guitar. I can't remember how this record came into my collection, but since I got it I never stopped playing it. If you're into melodic OC HC then grab this, sit back and enjoy.

If anyone can decipher the lyrics to Chocolate Rat I'll buy you a pint as a reward.

  3. Don't think Alfie featured on the record Kenny, my failing memory tells me not. I sold this a few years ago on e-bay and remember the back cover....but searching for the thing produced nowt.

  5. It was Alfie's older brother Frank who was on this record. Alfie was in D.I. at the time.
