Civil Disobedience-Political prisoners (tape,1992)

Civil Disobedience formed in Michigan in 1992 and "Political prisoners" was their demo tape recorded in the same year. It was distributed by Profane Existence mail order and sold several hundred copies,it was followed by the milestone "In a few hours of madness" ep on Havoc Records.
"Political prisoners" consists 13 tracks and about 28 minutes of frenzy hardcore, the sound quality is ok for a demo tape of early '90's, there's some great work on bass, shouting vocals and lyrics dealing with the usual political topics.
Civil Disobedience later put a full length lp on Profane Existence with a slightly different line up
Tracks:
01:Proletariot
02:Selective services
03:Puppets of democracy
04:Criminal control
05:Fuck the will of the gods
06:Autonomy
07:Resist refuse
08:Morrisey
09:TV screen
10:Pressure
11:Civil disobedience
12:Political prisoners
13:Race rits

hey all. what are the odds... this is actually a rip i made like 6 or 7 years ago. the sound quality is actually better than what you're hearing. i was new to computers & ripping at the time. i was using some editing program at the time (i don't remember which one) & there was some setting that was preset to add some kinda noise/manipulation. it's slight, but it's still there. it sucks, cuz i ripped all kinds of goodies & later found the setting. so all the initial tapes & records i ripped (HHIG demo, a ton of Suppression stuff, the Vomitus demo, etc) all have that weird ting. it's mainly audible in the drums.

anyway, i got this from the band when they played my house in philly in like... 96? i would re-rip it, but sadly i lost the tape during hurricane katrina.

anyway, glad to see people are enjoying it!
