Agression were a Southern California Skate/surf punk party band from the early 80's (one of the og Nardcore bands dude). When I think of them I'd usually thought of Mystic records, or Doug Moody. This version of the LP came out on BYO, and featured 14 catchy punk anthems. The back cover reads like a punk historical guide for the time, as the front cover was done by Glen Friedman, the drawings and art were done by Jaime Hernandez(love and rockets comics). The singer Mark Hickey, and guitarist Henry Knowles died in recent years (2000 & 2002).
I was lucky to have seen these guys a couple times with my buddy Zoran in the mid 80's in S.F. (once at the farm). I recall them throwing the live LP out to the audience at one of the shows, almost started a riot.
Enjoy this, I ripped it straight from the wax today, sorry for the snaps and pops.

  1. Great post by a great band. When I was still in SoCal I had the pleasure of hanging out with Big Bob (the bass player) on several occasions. The two remaining members have done a bunch of gigs up in the bay not too long ago. Thanx again for the post.

  7. This albums a keeper for sure, but wat about the best of on mystic sessions, or the original album. Henry Knowles was one of the nicest guys when i used to go see them. On one particular night (my birthday) He asked the crowd for somethin to smoke, i threw up a cheech and chonger sized j. He snatched it up and asked if id smoke it with him...later that evening he gave me a OLD flyer from 83' w/ HATED, JFA, and others. Rg

    Dude, this is AWESOME!! I having been looking for years and years for this album on the internet. I LOVED Agression back in the day and I listened to this album all the time. But all I had was a cassette that my friend recorded from his vinyl, and the cassette eventually got lost over the years. I downloaded the zip file with no problem, and now I can once again enjoy this incredible album. Thank you thank you thank you!!
