China White- Dangerzone ep
Here is the great Dangerzone 12" ep from Huntington Beach hardcore punk band China White.
They took their name from the drug that had killed Darby Crash and their music was punk with a very small amount of metallic riffing. There are six songs on this and they are all hits. Song four has a great galloping riff during the main part of the song that is very memorable, as is the title track.
This band, along with TSOL and The Crowd, were the center of the attention in Orange County. Those bands put on violent shows but backed it with classic music.
Here is the cover of the Dangerzone 12". Famous photographer Edward Colver was on his way home from a show and he walked past a murder scene, the body covered in a sheet, police cars, the whole deal, he took a quick picture and went on his way. That picture is the cover for this record.
Here is a picture of the band
