SOCIAL UNREST (MAKING ROOM FOR YOUTH)

All time great hardcore record!! The album rat in a maze is also a must . These guy's appear to still be around . Go check out their myspace , the link is at the bottom of the post. On the borderline of 1978/1979 spawned Social UnRest. The original line-up formed as Doug Logic (guitar), John Vollick (bass), Danny "Radio Shack" Norwood (guitar), Mark "Manslaughter" Monti(drums) and Creetin K-oS (a.k.a. Jason) on vocals. By early 1980, we were playing S.F. shows, as well as out of town. They recorded their debut 7" produced by Dead Kennedys guitarist East Bay Ray, and pressed up 500 copies of "Making Room For Youth" in the autumn 1981, backed up by "Join The People Who Joined The Army" and "Rush Hour" on the flip. This debut showcased a sharp unit with great promise, and an intense approach for it's time with catchy and memorable songs. Creetin's faux-Anglicised snarl and the fuzzy chopping guitars where influenced by the bands of the day. It's a real feeling of satisfaction to know that original $2.00 price of this 7" has accrued value beyond it¹s four minute length over the years. All in all SU has realeased 7 records and been featured on various compilations.
