Violent Society - Newtown Sucks

Punk rock from 1993 from Violent Society. I had a request for this one so here it is...

Violent Society is a punk rock band that formed in 1990. The band is based out of Philadelphia, PA. The band was formed in high school by two friends, Mike (Mick), Pat (Pat Society) and drummer Andy Petrov. Bill (Dirty Rotten Bill) and Pat Kelly filled out the lineup in 1990/91. Dave (Huevos) replaced Bill shortly before recording the album. "Not Enjoyin' It" In 1996 "The Rise of Punk" album was released. The year 1997 saw the release of "Times of Distraught" and in 1999, "Separation is Killing Us," the final album before breaking up. Violent Society has toured the United States and Europe numerous times. The band primarily stopped playing together in 2003, occasionally performing "reunion" shows from. However, the band has since regrouped in 2008 with the current lineup. 2010 saw a return to touring with a West Coast tour in June along with the release of "We Don't Believe" on Creep Records. The band recently recorded new material for a soon-to-be-released Kill Your Idols tribute album and an upcoming Christmas compilation. The band reached back to olden days to capture Showcase Showdown's "Merry Christmas, I Fucked Your Snowman". They are now concentrating on new material for release in 2011.

The above is lifted from Wiki and it says they formed in 1990 but i have a tape from 1988 from a Violent Society with a NJ address so maybe it's a different band? Also this release is not on any of their discography's that i see. Rare? maybe....? Good? Yeah, pretty good... Enjoy!
