SEGMENT 2: DC HARDCORE

          

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington,_D.C._hardcore

 

The majority of the DC hardcore bands were made up of middle/upper class private school educated children of diplomats and other members of the Washington establishment at the time. Many grew up in the Georgetown and Northwest areas of DC, where they developed a sense of social justice by witnessing its injustices first hand - they were rich kids living in a privileged world, a social elite.

 

Some of the many legendary DC bands:

 

Minor Threat, Teen Idols, S.O.A., FUGAZI, Bad Brains, Dag Nasty, Swiz, Iron Cross, VOID, The Faith, Youth Brigade, Government Issue, Scream, Marginal Man, Gray matter, EMBRACE, Soul Side, rites Of Spring, Ignition, Worlds Collide, Damnation A.D., Battery, Ashes, Gauge,



SEGMENT 3:    

 

Essential DC Hardcore Records from Our collections:

          

DAG NASTY - Can I Say

Original release 1986 Dischord Records

Re-Released in 2002 on CD - CD contains bonus material

 

Dag Nasty was a Washington D.C. melodic hardcore band formed in 1985 by guitarist Brian Baker of Minor Threat. Their style of less aggressive, melodic

hardcore was influential to emocore, as well as post-hardcore. Check them out here: http://www.daghouse.com/

 

BAD BRAINS - Rock For Light

            Original Release 1983 on PVC Records

            Reissued 1987 Caroline Records

            ReMixed and Released 1991 Caroline Records.

 

Bad Brains is an American hardcore punk band formed in Washington DC in 1977. They are widely regarded as among the pioneers of hardcore punk. Bad Brains developed a fast and intense punk rock sound which came to be labeled "hardcore", and was often played faster and more emphatically than the music of many of  their peers. The unique factor of the band's music was the fact that they played more complex rhythms than other hardcore punk bands, also adapting non-punk style guitar riffs and solos into their songs.        

 

The second full-length album by hardcore punk pioneers  Bad Brains, released in 1983.  

A previous album, Bad Brains, was released in 1982 but only on cassette, therefore

making Rock for Light Bad Brains' first proper album.

MINOR THREAT - Out of Step

Original Release - 1983 Dischord Records

 

Out of Step is the sole studio album by American hardcore punk band Minor Threat. It was released on 45 RPM vinyl in April 1983 through Dischord Records. After a temporary break-up in 1982, Minor Threat entered Inner Ear Studios in January 1983 to record Out of Step. Recording duties were handled by Don Zientara. While the lyrics on their early EPs were an outlet for MacKaye's message, the lyrics on Out of Step deal mainly with friendships and problems associated with them.
