Strange Wine: Live At CBGB's

Dr. Strange 92

Released on May 20, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Okay freaks... You've waited long enough! The Doc has seen fit to re-release a classic from Washington D.C.'s finest: GOVERNMENT ISSUE. For those of you with your head in the ground, GOVERNMENT ISSUE played right along side the other early 80's straight edge and hardcore greats such as: MINOR THREAT, SOA, ARTIFICIAL PEACE, BAD BRAINS, TEEN IDLES, DAG NASTY and just about every other band on Dischord Records. This version of Strange Wine, unlike the original release from '87, features the ENTIRE show plus three bonus studio tracks! Many unreleased songs on this one. And to top that off this was re-mastered by Mr. Tom Lyle himself! No kidding, it sounds amazing!!! Great new artwork, liner notes and photos as always.

Government Issue were one of the best (and sadly overlooked) harDCore bands from the 80s. This CD records a show played in 1987 at the CBGBs in New York, plus three studio songs (the title-track and two old ones re-recorded). The sound quality is excellent and the track-listing is perfect. GI's played melodic hardcore, with tons of hooks and energy to spare. If you don't know them you're missing big time. Some funny stage-banter by Stabb, as usual.
