Rites Of Spring – “End On End” LP
Original recorded February 1985 at Inner Ear Studios. With its emotional turbulance and concentrated self reflection this album single-handedly brought to an end the macho posturing that had become so prevalent within the hardcore punk scene at that point, not just in Washington D.C., but before long, the whole world. A groundbreaking band, they were also essential players within the swell of energy, referred to as “Revolution Summer”, that swept over the D.C. scene in 1985. Pre One Last Wish, Happy Go Licky, and Fugazi!
