Iron Cross - s/t LP
Okay, it's been a while since I've posted any OI so I thought I'd post this Iron Cross LP. Now I'm not sure that this is a bootleg or a legit release. It does list New Breed Records of Washington, DC as the label, but I'm still not convinced. I also could not find an actual release date on this LP either, so who knows and really does it matter?
There are three separate releases on this album. Side A: Tracks 1-4 are the "Skinhead Glory EP" tracks 5-8 are a Demo from 1980 and side B tracks 9-15 are a live recording "Love at the Wilson Center, Washington, DC 9/17/82.
This would have been a much better release without the live tracks. The live tracks sound like it was recorded on a boom box. The vocals are so muddy at times I'm not even sure that the track listing is correct. I almost didn't even include this side in the rip as it was so disappointing, but being a completist I had to include it to let you decide for yourself.
Side one is classic, and I don't think that the Demo as been released before, but I could be wrong. And "Skinhead Glory", is just a classic EP.
