Painkiller and Warthog Speak have teamed up to bring you two EP’s worth of the finest hardcore that Massachusetts has had to offer in the past 20 years. Fit For Abuse released just one 12-track EP in 1996, then recorded sporadically between 1998 and 2003, splitting time with a couple of different singers, and yielding a grand total of 4 released tracks. These two records compile 13 unreleased tracks from 1996-1998 that represent all of their unreleased material.
FIT FOR ABUSE – Too Little, Too Late 7″
Long thought to be missing in action, the original master tape for Fit For Abuse’s “Mindless Violence” 7″ has finally resurfaced to yield an extra five tracks, presented here for the first time on vinyl (or anywhere else for that matter). Original tracks “Bloodshed”, “Testosterone O.D.”, and “The Real Kids” are re-recorded cuts from the band’s first demo tape, and “Nuclear Threat” and “You’re A Rebel” (originally by The Abused and Iron Cross, respectively) were recorded for compilations that never came together at the time. “Testosterone O.D.” rips open this record with the ferocious Boston-via-Midwest hardcore sound that drives their original 7″, while “Bloodshed” and “The Real Kids” are classic oi-tinged singalongs. One time pressing of 500 copies.
