Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
With Reagan in the White House and international tensions flaring, few emerging musical acts were able to capture the frustration of the youth in their music as effectively as hardcore outfit D.R.I. In this performance captured live at New York City's legendary CBGB's during the band's "Violent Personification" tour, D.R.I. unleashes a highly politicized torrent of punk-rock frenzy that would forever change the face of punk music. Also included in this release is a full-length performance by the band at the Masonic Temple in Portsmouth, New Hampshire during the same tour, and a video profile of D.R.I.-sponsored professional skateboarder Kristian Svitak.
