AGRESSION-don't be mistaken LP (1983)

13.stop the clock
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.
