Psychotic Reaction + Kill the Facists! (Studio + Live at Anti Club)
Earth Dies Burning was formed in 1981 in the San Fernando Valley by a group of friends ranging in age from 10 to 14: the Karlsen brothers (Jeff and Matt), Brad Laner, and the Nachmann brothers (Guy and Ron). Their success in landing gigs at the time can be traced to Brad's precociousness (he had sat in with Vox Pop, Nervous Gender and others), Matt's natural talent for promotion, and the extraordinary openness of the Los Angeles punk/post-punk underground scene at that time. It seems that only now has the time ripened, dear listener; let the sweet smell of singed terrestrial morbidity flow from the valley of the bored teenager to your ears. Remastered and on vinyl for the first time.
