Formed in the late-'70s at the same high school that spawned L.A. legends TSOL, Rhino 39 had an unfortunate fate. After releasing one of the most legendary singles of the L.A. scene on Dangerhouse in 1979 - which included a track ("Prolixin Stomp") that is considered by many to be one of the earliest examples of L.A. hardcore - the lead singer, Dave Dacron, died in a car accident in April of 1980. His younger brother took over lead singing duties and though it took another six years for their self-titled, debut LP to be released, it still sounds like classic, early-'80s L.A. punk. Limited edition of 500 copies. Imported from Italy.
