The Hated – “Best Piece Of Shit Vol. 4” Double LP

The first of five planned collections by the this much sough-after Washington DC band who were active between 1984 to 1989. Because The Hated did not record for Dischord it immediately puts them in that high-interest, but kind of obscure, domain that was shared with Moss Icon, Fury (DC), and Rain. Their deal was to take a Dischord/hardcore spirit and energy, and to then inject heavy doses of Husker Du emulation, mainly in their approach to the vocals. But played fast, very fast. Resulting in something close to the earliest Lemonheads recordings, injected with extra Revolution Summer. Remastered from the original analog tapes, this compiles their D.I.Y. debut cassette (The Best Piece Of Shit Vol. 3 from 1985), the No More We Cry 7″ EP (Vermin Scum Records 1985), and 14 bonus tracks from the vaults, spread across two LPs. Includes lengthy essays on the band and scene, illustrated by dozens of photographs from the band’s archive.
