Caustic defiance/Negetive element split CD $10ppd to the world.
In the early 80’s era of punk rock, while the “big” punk bands of Chicago like Naked Raygun, Articles of Faith,The Effigies, and Big Black were leaving their mark and getting noticed, there was also a slew of really good bands from the Chicago suburbs who were a part of the same scene and playing the same shows. Negative Element was among the first of the Du Page County punk bands.Caustic defience was the inhelitance after the defunct of N.E.They play fast and furious hardcore ,in an opposition to the scene at that time.When the DC scene was turning into post hardcore,the revolution summer era,and Boston scene was turning into rock/metal.
The CD has 27 songs in 30 minutes, the way hardcore should be - fast, short and loud! Lot's of
unreleased stuff for collectors including the original mix of Negative Element's "Yes, We Have No
Bananas EP." The CD includes a 20 page booklet with tons of photos, flyers and other crap.
This is pure early 80s hardcore punk!

a teenager whos too smart too play the game" Steve Albini ( BIG BLACK,RAPEMAN,SHELLAC)
