AWOL - Vision + Demos

Location: Newburgh, NY
Release: Back Again Records, 1990 (long out-of-print)

This is one of those posts that would be better suited in blogs like Blogged And Quartered or One Track To Hell because we are talking about here of one of those real obscure gems and its complete discography. A.W.O.L. was a band from the second wave of NYHC that lasted from '88 to '91 featuring Sam Carbone, Darryl Quirk and Tom Connelly from All Out War, basically they changed the vocalist (Rich to Mike Score) in 1991 and All Out War was born.

A.W.O.L. is higly recommended for those into that nostalgic late 80's/early 90's
hardcore in the vein of Social Justice, Visual Discrimination, Release and a bunch of others bands/records we grown to love uncovered to us by infamous Lost & Found in a time of need (pre-internet era)! Hence AWOL's records never got reissued,  their music started to fade in people's memories doomed to become only a footnote on AOW's wikipage and would remain so, if it weren't for a couple of dudes in the B9 board.

1988 Two Faced Demo
1990 Vision 7" (self-released)
1990 "Having a Ball" Compilation Tracks
