Social Unrest “Rat in a Maze” Limited Edition, White, Colored Vinyl, Reissue, 2018
Special limited white vinyl LP pressing of the classic 1982 EP from Bay Area hardcore/thrash legends, Social Unrest! Rat In A Maze was produced by Dead Kennedy’s East Bay Ray. Formed in 1980. Social Unrest released their first 7″ record in 1981 and were quite influential in the development of the Bay Area hardcore scene throughout the 1980s. The seven songs on this EP are mostly fast except for “I love you”, a PIL-like tune. “Red, White & Blue” – with it’s numerous speed changes – remains a highlight.
