This demo has a definate Black Flag influence!

Joey and Claire Wilsher: For kicking us out of our house with a baseball bat at 4am and throwing our worldly possessions in the driveway at 10am. You've become what you hated, you anus-licking, rectum snarling, hairy scrotum gargling, schmegma-sucking s***bag.
Any "Peace" Officers we've encountered: When the system fails, you'll fall with it, you Nazi pigs. It won't be long.
Ucluelet Seafood Processors: Take your hake machine and shove it up your free-trade, American Corporation kissing asshole.
Prairie Bible Institute: For pushing Jonathan's friends to attempting suicide.
Ucluelet Secondary School: For being the closed-minded oppressors they are. Take your art scholarships and f*** off. Our amps are back on & louder than ever (naughty words included).
Carolyn Buck-F***: For kicking us out of two jamspots. By the way, we ate the chips in the wreck hall and drank that orangy syrupy s***, too.
-Contempt started in 1988 Ucluelet, B.C.
-Wolf Edwards (me), Steve Flach and Geoff Smith were the original members.
-first influences were Sex Pistols, Black Flag, DOA etc.
-started playing in Ucluelet was at our high school. It was complete chaos. The principle tried to pull the plug after one song and students started to throw chairs around and yell at the faculty. We were suspended for our last 2 days of school for an act of resistance.
-we moved to Victoria immediately afterwards and started playing shows every weekend and did our first tape.
-started broden our knowledge of punk with bands like crass conflict and discharge.
-also became much more aware and involved with anarchism.
-started to associate with different crowds and Jonathan left after a show in
-for last year Lettuce (Chris) joined the band.
-the band matured musically and philosophically but in larger cities we were a bit of an 80's throwback.
-played our last show on discovery st. and whent our seperate ways.
-Jonathan lives in Ucluelet and has 2 kids and does construction. Geoff lives in Courtney, they both played in a band called Wretch for a while. Steve lives in Vancouver plays with Submission Hold. Lettuce travels in and out Victoria and plays in Betty Ford. I started with my friend Dean Black Kronstadt, which lasted about 4 years. I recently finished a degree in music composition and just moved to Montreal.
-Thanks to Devin for this tape and I hope you enjoy the music. (wolf 2000)
