LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Bad Brains Format: Vinyl. Now added to my growing collection of Bad Brains vinyl collection. Has their earlier years of Clash sounding punk/reggae.
Now that the Bad Brains' earliest demos, circa 1979, have been dutifully documented on the Black Dots collection, this EP bridges that rougher, rawer, still-developing period with the furious, ungodly might, thrust, attack, and onslaught of their 1980-1983 period, the hottest hardcore ever. What's found here is the pioneering band's first excursion into a proper 24-track studio. A must-have album later reissued on CD, ROIR still boggles the brain in terms of speed, intensity, masterful playing, and tight precision. Get it. No. At only five songs, Omega Sessions is far too short to replace ROIR Sessions as the essential dynamite, and furthermore, ROIR is harder, tighter, meaner, and way more explosive. Compare the Omega and ROIR versions of "Attitude" and it's clear that as hot as the band was in 1980, one year later they were a total knockout.
Bad Brains are an American rock band formed in Washington, . They are widely regarded as among the pioneers of hardcore punk, though the band's members have objected to this term to describe their music. They are also an adept reggae band, while later recordings featured elements of other genres like funk, heavy metal, hip hop and soul. Bad Brains are followers of the Rastafari movement.
