Salad Days by MINOR THREAT takes us back to the year 1983 when these songs have first been transferred to that weird medium kids under 20 don't even know the existence about, tape. 1983 is also
the year that MINOR THREAT disappeared form the scene. Only a couple years after their formation in 1981, arisen from the ashes of former project TEEN IDLES. But in those couple of years the band released
a full length and a handful of EP's that would shake the hardcore world upside down and lead to the birth of
an entire scene named after one song by this influential band. Straight Edge.

Salad Days, Stumped and ( sometimes) Good Guys ( don't wear white). No explanation needed with these
tracks. If you haven't heard them before then it's time to do so. Cause the influence this band has had on hardcore in the early '80's is beyond comprehension.

|Lyle Preslar jamming along|
The insert holds some old pictures from those 'salad days', Ian interacting with the crowd, Brian and Lyle playing their axes and creative mastermind Jeff pasting the album art of Out Of Step like back in kindergarten.
DIY rules supreme in their book for sure.
