S.W.A.T. - The Soundtrack to the New Police State 7"
All-star band featuring Thee Hippy Slayer, Boyd Rice, Jim Goad and Adam Parfrey. I am Posting this on the anniversary of the Rodney King trial verdict and the Los Angeles Riots the proceeded it.
Not exactly a high point in American race relations. The "Theme from S.W.A.T." uses actual police radio broadcast from the riots. I'm kind of a nut when it comes to listening to police scanners so, I found this fascinating.
This was released on Amphetamine Records in 1994
I was too lazy to scan this myself so I used the scans from Discogs.com.
