Violent Apathy "11/29/81"


Along with The Fix, Necros, Negative Approach, and The Meatmen, Kalamazoo, MI's Violent Apathy was one of the pioneering bands for the Michigan hardcore punk scene of the early 1980s. With a head full of frantic earnesty, the crazed caterwauling of Violent Apathy contained on "11/29/81" is more akin to "Land Speed Record"-era Husker Du than the menacing, boot-stomping sounds any of their peers from the mitten state were kicking out at the time. After lingering in the dark recesses of the internet and crusty tape collections for years, No Idols and Radio Raheem are proud as punch to team up and present this obscure and unheralded piece of Michigan hardcore history to the underground.
