The Terrorists were a group that existed in Bakersfield, California in
the Early 80's. They were part of the same (small) Punk scene as the
Lizerds and (the amazing) Teen Suicide, like the former The Terrorists
were very elusive and unliked locally...or maybe Punk in Bakersfield was
highly unpopular...i'll go with the latter. The groups headmaster Eddie
pressed up a little over 100 copies (110 to be exact) of the Crazy Life
45, sold 12 copies worldwide , gave away around 50 and destroyed the
rest after a "Life changing" expierence in the mid 80's. The track
itself is a sinister drum machine stab at punk, it represents so much
about how i've felt about my hometown, it's amazing to me how in 1982
they felt the same way. We've replaced the original b-side with an
unheard live recording of "Crazy Life", we felt this song is far
superior to the original new-wave b-side. Alot of love and care went
into this reissue, it's raw still but that's the best you are gonna get.
The sound is low fi and raw. There are no master tapes no mint copies of
the 45 nothing. This is the best it's going to get. Largely under the
radar for most collectors, we tried to keep this a secret for as long as
possible to obtain personal copies. But it has sneaked out into the
world and was Featured on Johan Kugelberg's Perfect Sound Forever.
