BANNED FROM CHICAGO formed in Chicago’s nascent punk scene circa 1977. Not content with their hometown, they decamped for NYC in early 1978. But before they departed Chicago, they recorded a set at a studio on the south side. The eight songs sat unreleased until rediscovered in 2017. Banned From Chicago is twin guitars, throbbing bass, heavy drums and a unique take on punk’s early sound. These songs are mastered from the original tape and released officially for the first time in 2018 on LP & CD. Both formats include an insert with rare photos of the group and detailed liner notes.
