Sons Of Ishmael – “Hayseed Hardcore, The Whole Story” LP

A punk band from the backwoods of Toronto who were active from 1985 to 1992. Some will remember their LP, Pariah Martyr Demands A Sacrifice, released by the excellent Bristol label Manic Ears, back in 1987; other may remember the Sons Of Ishmael UK tour from sometime in the early 1990s. They were a fast hardcore/thrash band – somewhere between MDC, Adrennalin OD and 76% Uncertain – with socio poilitical lyrics that were contrasted with a more light-hearted sarcastic humour (often the case with Canadian punk bands: both smart and funny). Seventeen songs were recorded in 1985, some of which ended-up on their self-released debut EP, Hayseed Hardcore. This 12″, released in 2010, compiles that recording session in its entirity and includes amusing liner notes and an insert.

These copies are the original 2010 press, and the sleeves are showing their age – very minor corner wear, borderline classifiable as ‘mint’ – I like you to know what you’re getting. I would add close up photographs, but to be honest, it’s so slight, you wouldn’t be able to see anything…
