SAND IN THE FACE - Music Made To Riot: New Jersey Hardcore 1982-1983 LP

This LP compiles the very earliest recordings of Montville, NJ's Sand In The Face. The demos, largely recorded at Boonton, NJ's Mix-O-Lydian Studios, features the band's pre-LP lineup, containing a young, pre-Chrome Crank Peter "Aaron" Wegele on bass, who also contributes extensive liner notes for the record. Note that Mix-O-Lydian is the studio that gave us the Misfits' "Walk Among Us" not much earlier. Sand In The Face was one of the first wave of New Jersey's hardcore bands, and were contemporaries with the likes of Adrenalin OD and Bedlam. Mike Judge of the late-'80s New York hardcore band Judge attended the same high school as members of Sand In The Face and credits them with inspiring him to start his own band. Musically, it's disaffected, suburban, teenage thrash of the best variety. If you're familiar with the likes of Buy Our Records or Mutha Records, you know the pedigree. Limited edition of 600 copies.
