For fans of: Suicidal Tendencies, No Mercy, Excel, Beowülf, D.R.I.
Venice, CA crossover legends UNCLE SLAM formed after the dissolution of Profile Records recording artists The Brood, when Todd Moyer (guitar, vocals) and drummer Amery Smith (ex-Suicidal Tendencies) decided to carry on with friend and former Dissenter bassist Simon Oliver. The group dedicated an entire year to writing, arranging, and pre-production before entering Music Grinder Recording Studio with Randy Burns (Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, Excel) to lay down their 12-song full-length debut, Say Uncle, released through Caroline Records in 1988.
The album carved out UNCLE SLAM's immediately identifiable take on powerful and aggressive crossover thrash, with a distinctive storytelling lyrical style and a surprisingly melodic edge. Promotional activities at that time would find the trio performing alongside acts such as Beowülf, Evol, Wasted Youth, and crossover pioneers D.R.I.
First reissued by Divebomb Records in 2010, this vastly expanded edition of Say Uncle—an all-time crossover thrash favorite of label founder Matthew Rudzinski—is bigger and better than ever! Jamie King Audio has newly remixed and remastered the material from the original April, 1988 session reels with input from Moyer and Smith; and this also marks the inclusion—for the first time ever on CD—of "The Punisher," which had previously only appeared as an unlisted bonus track on the 1988 cassette pressing.
As if that wasn't enough, a second disc offers up a Full Dynamic Range remaster of the original Japan-only CD audio from 1988! The all-new booklet will then be jam-packed with restored original artwork, lyrics, band-provided archival images, and new historical essay. For the fans, by the fans!
