Classic early 80’s hardcore; most of the material has been unavailable for over a decade!
Articles of Faith was one of the premier American hardcore bands of the early ’80s. Combining thrash, reggae, and noise, the group was notable for its political lyrics, three-guitar attack, and sponsorship of the Chicago scene. AOF released two Eps and two LPs, and toured North America many times from 1983-1985. The group disbanded in 1985, but reunited with all original members for a brief European tour in 1991. They have not played together since.
Contains AOF material from 1981- 1984 : All tracks from the compilation LP, The Mastertape (1982); the first EP, What We Want Is Free (1982); the first Bob Mould-produced LP, Give Thanks (1984); 3 Bonus Tracks and 1 unreleased live track. (CD contains 20 tracks; LP has 17 songs.)
