RADIO-003: THE ABUSEDLoud and Clear LP
In 1983, a foursome of self-released seven inch ep’s came out of the Lower East Side of Manhattan that heralded a new breed of hardcore punk for New York. Agnostic Front’s ‘United Blood’, Antidote’s ‘Thou Shall Not Kill’, Cause For Alarm’s self-titled release and The Abused’s ‘Loud and Clear’ all defined the sound and aesthetic of New York Hardcore for years to come with their sonic brutality and fervent lyrics. Since then, all of these records have been re-issued barring the latterly mentioned ‘Loud and Clear’. That is, until now.

Radio Raheem proudly presents the first fully authorized re-issue of the ‘Loud and Clear’ ep. Pressed in the LP format, this 21-track collection is rounded out by the band’s 1982 demo and never before heard live material. Also included is a 24-page, full color booklet containing photos, lyrics and the band’s infamous show flyers drawn by their vocalist Kevin Crowley, as well as a sticker sheet of original Abused sticker designs. Finally, the most arcane and collectible piece of the early 80’s NYHC puzzle is available for both the tight pursed nerd and curious onlooker alike.

    Actually, the oft maligned German label: Lost and Found records released an Abused lp featuring the 7″ and demo tracks back in the early 90’s… The recording quality was surprisingly good. I believe they also released a version on picture disk (yuck!).

    DOPE!

  3. Chris Says:

    Tommy, the L&F record only has the demo plus two of the tracks from the 7″ (they left off the repeated songs) and sounds like crap
