Since the super sweet 7 Inch Punk did a post recently on Ugly Americans I figured I'd do the same in case some folks haven't heard their pre rock/metal years. The Dream Turns Sour was released in 1984 on their own Discipline Records and I was first exposed to it on the tiny local college radio station (whose range basically ended at my house) that I've mentioned before. At the time I thought Dance Of Death was the absolute shit. In retrospect I may have overreacted, but this LP is still worth a listen and as far as I know its never been reissued-
Dance Of Death
Night On Redneck Mountain
The Bad, The Worse, And The Ugly Americans
Keep On Shooting
A nice summary of the early North Carolina scene, including info about Simon Bob and Ugly Americans can be found here.
