The Effigies "Haunted Town" EP (1981)



Five tracks of mid tempo punk/hardcore from one of Chicago's earliest hardcore band. Tight well written songs with lots of crunchy guitar sound and lead solos. Great lyrics sung with a great voice. Sort of a British skinhead feel. Originally released on Autumn Records and later repressed on Ruthless/Enigma. These tracks are also captured on their collection CD "Remains Nonviewable".

  1. Good choice putting the files on Mediafire - nice speeds and no input code/wait. I've been looking for an ep I used to have - Impulse manslaughter: Burn One Naked and Nuke It. Weird, frenzied thrash with sloppy drumming. Also never heard the 2nd Mob ep - Step Forward.

  2. I will post that 2nd Mob ep soon... it's alright but not as good as the first.

    I'll get Impulse Manslaughter up for you tonight! :)
