Bad Brains’s I Against I gets 30th anniversary re-release




SST classic gets repress.

Formed in 1977, Bad Brains were lumped in with the rest of the Washington DC hardcore scene exploding at the turn of the 1980s, but the fact that they were all adept musicians in a technical sense set them apart from many of the three-chord amateurs that made their name at the time.

I Against I marked the band’s first release on SST and saw the band incorporating metal into their already tangled musical vibe of funk, soul, reggae and punk. Many consider the album to be the pinnacle of the band’s output.

30 years on from its original release, Bad Brains is re-pressing the acclaimed album on vinyl. Place orders here.
