Gov's Issue - Complete History, Vol. 2
 

One of the first hardcore bands to come out of DC, Government Issue was also one of the longest lasting, playing shows for over 8 years. Most of their contemporaries fell by the wayside as the years passed, but the GIs endured. Members came and went, but the band was slowly evolving into a very tight and powerful musical force. The 51 songs on this compilation are a huge departure from their early hardcore sound; still based heavily in punk, but with hints of metal, slower tempos, and lots of pop hooks. Mostly old EPs, live tracks, and rare tracks, this 2 CD set is an excellent purchase for 80's punk fans.
