Articles of Faith: Complete Vol. 1 (1981-1983)
I instantly liked Articles of Faith the first time I heard them.
"Bad Attitude" is in my Top 5 Hardcore Songs of all-time, easy.
AOF is a noteworthy group from the hardcore genre mainly because of Vic Bondi's lyrics. He had a lot more to offer in that department versus the whole "I'm hardcore/fuck you/I hate stuff" tunes which were more the norm then the exception during that era. Granted, those ideals are kind of what make hardcore what it is/was in some ways.
At any rate, Articles of Faith had musical chops to boot and played fast and intelligible hardcore that anyone could co-sign and get down to.
I chose to upload the first volume of the Complete Discography seeing as it has all the early stuff.
