Minor Threat

First Demo Tape (1980 - 1983)

Dischord 140

Released on June 17, 2003



Want to be notified once we get restocked?

In early 1981 Minor Threat made their first trip to the studio. The band recorded all of the songs that they had written in the short time they had been together, but were apparently unsatisfied with their performance and never bothered to do a final mix of the tape. Instead they went back into the studio a month later and recorded what would become their debut, the 8-song eponymous 7"EP (Dischord #3). The tape of the first demo was discovered when Dischord started work on the 'Twenty Years of Dischord' boxset. Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara mixed the tape in December of 2001, but the release was shelved by the label while work was being done on the boxset. The rough mix of this first demo has appeared on bootlegs over the years, but this is the first time that the master tapes have been made available.

i guess it's worth getting if you've never heard minor threat before and don't want to spend the money on something you're not sure about it. it's a pretty good CD, the discography is better. i'd really only suggest getting this if you're interested in how their sound changed, and how they got better. minor threat's one of the greatest punk bands ever so you'll probably like this.

This CD is very good. I got it because it was cheap.I don't like Minor Threat much. I got this mostly because i'm a huge fan of Fugazi and Bad Religion. Regardless, this is great and influential music. Worth $5 to get most of the best songs by Minor threat but you may just want to spring for the complete discography.

Get this CD, it's awesome! Especially if you are new to MT, you should check this out. It's raw and pure basement hc at its best. End of discussion.

Sweet CD! I had never heard Minor Threat before this and was not dissapointed. It's real punk music. If you don't have this than get it. It's only 5 bucks and that's a steal alone. You won't be dissapointed!Buy it!

Not much to say about this one. Good songs, but the same stuff you could get on the full length. I suppose if you just wanted to try minor threat out, this would be right for you.
