Why Work For Death?/We The Fooled

Bad Idea Music 4

Released on December 3, 2012

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

From the depths of Long Beach, CA, Bad Idea Music brings you the return of DISSENSION. In the simplest terms and the most convenient definition some may call them, “80’s Long Beach hardcore”, but they’re much more than that... Meeting as teenagers at the Black Flag practice spot, Kelly, Matt and Randy started writing songs in jamming in a bed- room. They completed the line up with Franco and then Mike (Target of Demand). DISSENSION came up from the ghettos of Long Beach along side bands like Final Conflict, Bitter End, Body Count, Terminal Choice, Visual Discrimination, etc... and would go on to sharing the stage with the likes of Social Distortion, T.S.O.L., D.I., UK Subs, Bad Religion, China White, English Dogs, NOFX, Fear, R.K.L., Dr. Know, D.R.I., the Mentors, BL’AST, Uniform Choice, etc..., Dissen- sion rose through the ranks and were soon headlining their own shows. Metalstorm Records signed the band and released their first release, “Why Work For Death?” in 1986 and their second record, “We The Fooled” in 1988. Both records were recorded by Chaz Ramirez (best known for his work as a pro- ducer on several Social Distortion records) at Casbah Studio in Fullerton, CA. The recordings were re-mastered in August 2012, by Jack Control of Enormous Door Studios in Austin, TX for this release of both recordings on this CD. Dissension toured the U.S. with NOFX in 1989, disbanded in 1990 and some members went on to play in Sublime, All Day, Cadillac Tramps and Slightly Stoopid.
