D.R.I. - Violent Pacification 7" - Dirty Rotten/R-Radical Records 1984














I decided to give this one a spin today after 20+ years of sitting in my record box. I really love early DRI, and can even deal with their more thrashy crossover stuff as well. I think the last DRI record I can still enjoy is probably Crossover or maybe Four of A Kind. Anyway just figured I'd record this one and share it today since it was spinning on the turntable anyway.

This one is back in print...Purchase

Hey Ben, Yeah me and Tracy go way back. I used to roadie for Dahlia Seed and my brother was their drummer. Me and Tracy are actually doing a label together right now called Little Black Cloud. We aren't releasing anything that fits this blog though. We just released her Ringfinger album on a limted cd and we did this band Cinemasophia who of course broke up a week after we released their cd haha. Next up is the Dynamic Truths discograpghy which is Bob Schick from Honor Role and Coral fame.
