Toxin III -Iraq. Iran. (Again.) CD
(Hyped to Death Archives #202) Crowley, Louisiana 1979-1981. Punk bashing
of the first order (and our all-time favorite punk logo: note that these guys
hailed from several miles deeper into the woods than David Duke's old
stomping-grounds, where taking such liberties with th'beloved stars-and-bars
was not without its risks to life and limb...). "I Rock I Ran" remains
an all-time classic, and remixed/remastered versions of Duke Is Dead/Poor Sid
and others should be taking their places in the punk parthenon shortly. Here's
all of the EP, a couple studio sessions and a live radio broadcast. Originally
planned as a co--release with Rave-Up Records, who are temporarily even more
backed up than we are... FYI, Toxin III is a strain of anthrax that was rumored
to be in circulation during the Iran-Iraq war, then used against Saddam's own
citizens ten years later...and then of course getting mailed around the U.S.
by disgruntled domestic terrorists around the time that T3 leader Chris Cart
and I started getting together on this project... Timely.
