We are attempting to remaster and re-release the 1986 hardcore classic Shatter Your Day by Philadelphia’s Flag of Democracy on 2xCD, 2xLP, Cassette and Digital Download. This won’t be your standard reissue with a single bonus track or nothing more to offer at all, this release will be chocked full of painstakingly collected bonus materials that no one could get their hands on.Here is what our reissue will have to offer besides the original album:
The Chinese Food Cassette (1982): This rare gem has been circulating in various incomplete forms by tape traders and shady music blogs in various unlistenable forms, but this is comes from a former band member’s personal collection, and we were even able to get one of the unreleased tracks from the tape session!!!
The Aborted Love Songs EP (1983): This is the 7” you never got to hear, and probably for good reason. The master tape is a bizarre psychedelic mess of delay, panning and phaser. Luckily we have the multitrack reels and have a chance of a more reasonable mix. These are the songs you know, by the band you love, only slightly younger. This is also the session that the Get Off My Back comp tracks come from.
Boombox tape (1983): This is a fantastic mess of the band at a rehearsal. We won’t make you suffer through the whole thing, we will just give you the only thing you would want... THE UNRELEASED TRACK!
(8) Love Songs EP (1984): This is the actual 7” you love and hold so dear, plus the Get Off My Back comp tracks. This contains Powerload and seven other hits.
5 Bands That Have Changed The World (1985): Here are the comp tracks from the 5 Bands That Have Changed The World compilation, one unreleased song from the Shatter Your Day sessions and a couple live tunes from CBGBs. This comp also contained tracks from Adrenalin OD, White Flag, 7 Seconds and F.Live on WXPN (1985): Did you know what WXPN used to actually have honest to god students on the air? Here is FOD playing live on XPN.Please help us towards our goal of getting this amazing record, and everything else we found along with it, back on everyone’s shelves where it belongs.
