JERK WARD- Too Young To Thrash LP ~REISSUE!
JERK WARD- Too Young To Thrash LP. A teenage adrenalin overdose of blazing hardcore thrash with guest appearances by the NEOS! Contains full “Flesh & Bones” ‘84 demo except one song replaced by an early version from “BYO – Medium Raw” comp tape ‘82, and one unreleased track. “warp-speed early-’80s hardcore…JERK WARD were friends of the NEOS, and you can hear their influence in the music….this LP sounds great considering it’s comprised of demo recordings…the fast stuff gives DRI, YOUTH KORPS, and STARK RAVING MAD a run for their money in the speed department, but far from being monochrome thrash, JERK WARD varies the tempos and also throws in weird guitar work to keep you on your toes. Lovingly compiled and well worth tracking down.” (MRR – Oct. 2009)…”spastic & angry, yet soaked with humor…this is truly a gem of a bygone era that is well worth picking up from both a historical standpoint as well as an unbelievably rockin’ one.” (Razorcake webzine). 17 songs, professionally 24-bit remastered. Packed with all original artwork + photos circa ‘82-84, plus a booklet with interview + art. Deluxe 140 gram 12” virgin vinyl, cut at 45 rpm for extra volume and power. Hand numbered pressing of 300!
