the front - la bete humaine 12" 1987

third installment from these four lads out of cali, released in 1987 thru nocturnal records and production, an indie label based in san diego. the front, not the synthpop outfit..... was mark baez(vocals and guitars), morgan smith(lead guitar), kevin chanel(bass) and dan mehlos on drums and percussion. released two(rock/punk) eps before this (gangland 1984 and man, you gotta move, 1986). unlike the first two eps, this record is a bit mellow and less edgy but with equal political messages as suppose to punk ala the clash or the jam.
quick note: they have a cd compilation of all three eps and more available for download here!
