This LP brings back some great memories for me. My friend Zoran from S.F. and I were pretty much inseparable during those days. We'd go to almost every show, bomb hills on our skateboards, and get fucked up on anything that could get us a buzz together. Zoran knew everyone. Every time Dark Angel would plow into the bay area we would be there, on the guest list and hanging out with the undergrounds fastest and tightest drummer, Gene H. The guy was huge (prolly like 300 pounds), but never slowed down or missed a beat. One evening in particular I can recall hanging out in the Safeway parking lot drinking beer, and eating pirogies with Gene. This record reminds me of those times. Great thrashing speed metal from L.A.

  3. That is NOT Gene Hoglan on drums on We Have Arrived. It is Jack Schwartz.
