Stains - Stains Lp - 1983


The Stains were a quartet formed by Jesse Fixx (aka Jesus Fixx, bass) and Robert Becerra (guitar) in 1976 in East Los Angeles, California. Early on, the band shifted styles, moving from heavy metal to fusion to hardcore punk. The band was known for their confrontational shows and eventually caught the attention of Black Flag, who offered to release the band's album on SST Records. In 1981, shortly before recording the album, the group underwent major line-up shifts, with Becerra being the only constant member. The band was rounded out Rudy Navarro (vocals), Ceasar Viscarra (bass), and Gilbert Berumen (drums) for the recording of the group's sole album, which was eventually released in 1983. The band appeared from time to time in the late 1980s and early 1990s featuring various different line-ups but no recordings were ever released. In the 2000s, the album line-up of Becerra, Navarro, Viscarra, and Berumen (now performing as Jack Lopez) reunited. In 2014, the band once again disbanded.

I've been looking for a mid-priced original copy (at least VG++) of this album for years ... Nothing spectacular but I dig it. Beloved SST connection as well ...

Cheers.
