United Mutation

(cover of first ep, Fugitive Family (1983) and second ep, Rainbow Person (1984), respectively)

Here we have one of my favorite bands from the early 80s hardcore era, as well as one of the most criminally overlooked. Probably one of the first hardcore bands to use that manic gutteral scream you would see later in bands like Septic Death. This "discography" compiles their first 7", demo tracks, a large handful of compilation tracks, and some live ones. On the downside, this compilation completely neglects the studio version of their excellent second EP Rainbow Person (the live version of it is included, though) and the tracks from the first 7" are all out of order. Luckily for you, I'm also including the second EP. A cumulative 35 songs for your earholes. ESSENTIAL.
