CHEIFS "Holly-West" Crisis

LP
SOLD OUT
















CHEIFS
"HOLLY-WEST" CRISIS

Primo re-issue of overlooked but underrated early '80s California hardcore band.  The Cheifs kicked around the decline scene with Black Flag, X and Circle Jerks...and kicked it hard.  Their songs have a slight touch of pop and polish, without losing any of the primitive drive, urgency and youthful energy that you'd expect from an old school SoCal crew.

This record collects the entire studio output of their seminal, though short-lived career (their lone 7", a couple comp tracks and previously unreleased material).  "Knocked Out" alone is worth the price of admission and the new track "Liberty" is a great archeological find.
