This 12" was released in the year of 1983. Mc Rad are comin' straight outta Philadelphia. After guitarist /skateboarder Chuck Treece became sponsored by Stacy Peralta, Chuck formed Mc Rad, who along with other skate punk bands JFA and Texas' own Big Boys, became one of the more popular skate punk bands of that era. Dominant Force is a blistering EP, starting with Sundail. Next song rolls Greed, this was the first song I ever heard from this release, and I was instantly hooked. Acid Drop is the 3rd song on this one, and the next 2 rippers comin' up on this release are Programmed Children, and my absolute favorite Mc Rad song, motherfucking Resthaven!!!!!!! (next would be Joslyn) ahhaah. The last 3 trax closing out this EP are Dominant Force, No Guns, and Forget Those Years (Dub). This is such a solid release in my book, and if you haven't heard it, GO LISTEN TO IT!!!!!!!!!!! Mc Rad will be playin' next month with The Faction, Drunk Injuns, and Johnny Rad And The Eggplants and more at Atomic Liquors May 24th, and there will also be a skate comp goin on to add to the fun. GO! GO! GO!!!!
Long out of print, this album is currently available on the Discogs website for a very reasonable price, and you can click here to purchase your own copy. It's worth every penny.
