Band: MDC (2)

Release Date:

Music Genre: Punk Rock Hardcore

Record Type: 14 Tracks Vinyl Album LP Repress

MDC, or Millions of Dead Cops, began in 1979 in Austin, Texas as The Stains. They released the classic "John Wayne was a Nazi" 7" in 1980, half of the pressing was under the Stains name, half "MDC-Stains". That year MDC relocated to San Francisco, following the lead of fellow leftist Texans the Dicks. Witnessing a violent police riot at their show with Flag in Orange County inspired the new name (the change was necessitated by fellow opening band the Stains from LA).

Second pressing with plain white center labels.
Screen-printed heavy paste-on cardboard jacket with white border around orange background and black band logo.
Different mix and side B track order than on later versions.

Issued with double sided lyric insert.

Pressing Note:
The record plant made an error and accidentally printed covers with orange background instead of the ordered red colored one. So the band waited for the correctly printed red covers before they distributed and sold the first pressing of the record (with printed center labels) to public. The first pressing quickly sold out and the band ended up pressing more record (with plain white center labels). They used the covers with the orange background which they bought at a discount from the pressing plant and combined them with these repressed records.
So the second pressing of the record was actually sold in the original, misprinted cover.

Recorded December 1981 in Houston.

No catalog number appears on the release; MDC-1 is derived from the runout area etchings.
