Last May SMOGTOWN ceased to exist. The legendary Southern California punk-hardcore band is no more. CHAVEZ, GUITARDO, CHIP and TIM only recorded two full albums, Führers of the New Wave in 2000 and Domesticviolenceland in 2001, both of them on DISASTER, and released a handful of vinyl releases; they rarely toured outside California but managed to build a loyal cult following all around the world. The originality of their sound combined with their clever, subversive songwriting, made them unique. In order to close this musical chapter, SMOGTOWN and DISASTER have decided to release the original, previously unheard early demos, recorded by the band in 1995 and 1996. These 19 tracks showcase SMOGTOWN at its early stage: fresh, intense, already in control of its sound. All the material on Tales of Gross Pollution is UNRELEASED and this CD includes photos, flyers as well as liner notes by Chavez.
