REALLY RED was the backbone of Houston’s underground from the early punk era clear through 80’s hardcore. Like The Dicks in Austin, they directly challenged an insanely violent policed department at no small risk to their own lives. Their sound itself had more art and post-punk elements then most, with a musical and lyrical depth on par with bands like Mission of Burma, Wire, or Dead Kennedys. This collection presents the sound better then it has ever been, so hear them again for the first time – or the first time EVER.
For CD buyers, Virus 457 “Teaching You The Fear: The Complete Collection 1978-1985” has it all here in one double-disc set. The classic “Teaching You The Fear” LP, the long-lost second album, “Rest In Pain”, and plus all their sought-after 7″s, and some unreleased gems to boot.
Comes with full history and liner notes via vocalist /leader Ronnie Bond’s (U-Ron Bondage) extensive interview with David Ensminger (Left Of The Dial).
All restored from the original tapes, then lovingly re-mastered by Jello Biafra, for the best all-around sound REALLY RED has ever had!
