End Result‘s 1982 masterpiece The Seven Year Locust Returns on vinyl for the first time! This album was originally dubbed on cassette and distributed among friends in the Chicago punk scene. TSYLR represents End Result at their most formative stage. The recordings presented here contain the brutal roots of what would come later on their excellent, David Riley (Big Black, Savage Beliefs) produced, Ward 12″.
Via The Chicago Punk Database: End Result first rehearsed in July 1979 in a basement near Pill Hill on the south side. They were (ARE!) a well respected experimental / nowave band that had a changing lineup throughout the 1980s. Their style was much different than their “hardcore” peers and featured a style that couldn’t really be categorized by normal punk conventions.
The best preserved copy of End Result's hand-dubbed The Seven Year Locust Returns cassette was located in the archive of Chicago experimental institution ONO. It was subsequently and expertly transferred and mastered by Carl Saff. Pressed into vinyl and placed inside a cardboard sleeve for you to buy, rip open and enjoy. Available from June 2019.
