Toxic Shock Records just sent over this newly released punk rock artifact, one that I hold very dear to my heart. The record you see is a newly released album containing much of the old Peace Corpse material and is called Terror of Quincy.
My love for Peace Corpse, especially their first 7″, has been well documented on this site in the past. That 7″ was one of the most important punk EPs of my early high school career and one of the records I still play for anyone who has never heard it before.
This LP compiles the Quincy 7″ EP and three songs from the Terror of History LP. Why they didn’t put the whole of Terror of History on this album is a mystery to me but I know that Bill from Peace Corpse wasn’t very happy with that record in hindsight. My favorite song from that record is included on here though, “Mental Malady” which was the most important one to choose if you ask me.
The LP comes packaged in a full color jacket and the record is on purpleish gray/blue split vinyl. The record is housed in a two-sided printed inner sleeve with photos, lyrics, and credits. The entire package was very nicely done and the record itself sounds fantastic and much cleaner than I remember the originals sounding, not that they sounded bad by any stretch of the imagination.
I had no idea this was coming out so it was a really great surprise to get one and I’m ecstatic that this music is once again available on the superior format after being unavailable for more than two decades! Your better record stores should have this but if not, you can get one directly from Toxic Ranch Records (aka: Toxic Shock) right here.
