Gray Matter

Food For Thought (Colored Vinyl)

Dischord 48

Released on October 20, 2009


Vinyl includes MP3 download card

Gray Matter officially formed in the summer of 1983 but Geoff Turner, Mark Haggerty and Dante Ferrando had been playing in bands since their early middle school days. By early 1983, Dante and Mark were playing in Iron Cross, but when when the band's image began to reflect it's supporters more than the members themselves, Dante quit. Soon after Mark also left and the two reunited with Geoff and Iron Cross roadie Steve Niles and started playing shows around Washington, DC as Gray Matter. The band's first album, “Food For Thought” was originally released on R&B records in 1985 while the members were still in High School and continues to stand out as a classic teenage punk album. In the aftermath of DC’s Revolution Summer Gray Matter recorded the brilliant “Take It Back” 12” EP which was released on Dischord in 1986. Shortly thereafter Mark left to go to college and the band went on one of their frequent hiatuses. Dante went on to play drums for Ignition and Geoff, Steve, and Mark reunited and formed the band Three, with Jeff Nelson from Minor Threat. Gray Matter re-emerged in the spring of 1990 and released a double seven inch in 1991 and the full-length, “Thog”, in 1992. The first Dischord edition of “Food For Thought” was released on vinyl in 1990 along with the “Food For Thought”/”Take It Back” Maxi-CD (DIS49). In late 2008 Dischord Records began recutting much of our vinyl catalog here in the United States. We began by re-pressing current titles, and later re-issuing others, all re-cut at Chicago Mastering Service. All re-issued 12“ albums feature complimentary MP3 album downloads coupons
