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.
These two AOF releases compile all the vinyl releases of AOF, and have never been released on CD in the United States.
Contains AOF material from 1983- 1985 : All tracks from the second EP Wait, the second Bob Mould-produced LP, In This Life (1985); 3 Bonus Tracks and 1 unreleased live track. (CD contains 18 tracks; LP has 16 songs.)
