Nation of Ulysses "13-Point Program To Destroy America" CD (1991)
Details: Used CD, graded conservatively (in great condition). Nation of Ulysses album, "13-Point Program To Destroy America," (1991/2002) brilliant early release from Ian Svenonious and co. on Dischord Records. Has since been reissued on vinyl, CD, and remastered. Still rings true as an early and brilliant selection from the Dischord canon and Svenonious (is pre-Make-Up, Chain, and latest project, Escapism). "I'M A BOTTLE ROCKET BABY!" CD version is out of print. This is the 2002 reissue with extra tracks included (tracks 12-14) taken from their 1st 7 Inch, #46.5. Soul, heavy rock n' roll, experimental, post-punk.
Description: "The Nation of Ulysses was a violent separatist political party and terrorist group operating out of Washington, D.C. in the early 1990's. Though they've disappeared into obscurity, they've spawned countless milquetoast imitators who've tried to appropriate their looks, language, sound and presentation for the sake of career advancement. These cheap imitators can't comprehend that the Nation of Ulysses derived their awesome power from their unswerving commitment to secession and havoc wreaking, and not to the banal and unimportant pursuit of fame and wealth. The N.O.U. is probably the most important development to beset music since electrification, as they were the first to articulate intent through written manifestos and stage histrionics, refuting rock'n'roll's traditional policy of posturing rebelliously while aping parent culture values." - Dischord Records
