Originally released in 1978 on Sire Records, DMZ's first and only LP never really fit into the punk/new-wave mold that was forced upon it. These 5 shaggy haired dudes from Boston were more interested in the Sonics than the Sex Pistols and their goal, as stated by frontman Jeff "Mono Man" Conolly was "fusing the sound of the Chocolate Watchband and the Stooges." Produced by Flo & Eddie, of the Turtles' fame, this album was much maligned at the time but has come to be accepted as a classic record that helped jump start the ongoing garage-rock revival that began in the '80s. In fact, Mono Man, upon the breakup of DMZ, founded the group Lyres in 1979, a legendary garage-rock band that carry on to this day. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl and available in the LP format for the first time since it's initial release.
