MAXIMUM PENALTY
DEMO 89 &EAST SIDE STORY
I SCREAM

NYC hardcore pioneers Maximum Penalty’s early days are documented on this 14-track re-release, some of which haven’t seen the light of day in over 15 years. From DEMO 89 & EAST SIDE STORY, the strains of no frills, pure late ‘80s-early ‘90s hardcore a la Agnostic Front, Bad Brains, and Cro-Mags are pumped through your speakers as these veterans dig through their archives and give the kids a glimpse of where the stuff they dig today comes from on tracks like “Brutality” and “I’ll Save You”. With a reunion in the works, Maximum Penalty’s reissue is a fine way to get reacquainted to one of the scene’s founding members.
