Amenity. They appeared on the "They Don't Get Paid..." comp. I just re-posted and were a staple of the Southern California HC scene in the late 80s. A straight edge band with posi lyrics and a healthy social conscience, musically they seem to me to straddle the line between bands like Ignition and Verbal Assault and the emergence of early 90s chugga-chugga style HC as practiced by groups like Groundwork and Chokehold. Their "This Is Our Struggle" 7" was a mainstay on my turntable back then. This CD, issued by Vinyl Communications, includes their Eps and compilation tracks, demos and some live tunes, including cool cover songs. The sound quality on much of this collection is lacking but the early tracks, though rough, include some great HC tunes. The later material is more mid-paced and rocking, but still powerful and the lyrics are great. I bet these dudes were awesome live.
