VINYL FORMAT. Back in 1981, NEGATIVE APPROACH (along with The MEATMEN and the NECROS) were one of the dominant forces in the Detroit underground. The ravages of the Motor City made it a perfect breeding ground for this cacophony, later termed "hardcore." Hordes of punks packed the legendary Freezer Theatre to John Brannon's jagged, gruff vocals, the McCulloch brothers' (Rob and Graham) guitar/bass gnash, and OP Moore's pounding fury. Long out of print, NEGATIVE APPROACH originally released this 10-Song 7" EP in 1982 to a limited pressing of 3,000 on Touch and Go Records. The band's minimalist (read: thirty second songs) and aggressive brand of punk has inspired countless hardcore bands around the globe. Their influence continues today with the 2010 publications of Tesco Vee's Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '77-'83 and of Tony Rettman's Why Be Something You're Not: Detroit Hardcore 1979-1985 - which both feature NEGATIVE APPROACH's John Brannon on their covers. Now re-mastered by John Golden, the legendary 10-Song 7" EP is once again available for past, present, and future hardcore fans.
