Cause For Alarm had its origins in New Jersey under the name of Hinckley Fan Club. After moving to New York in early 1983, the band changed their name to Cause For Alarm and quickly became stalwarts in the burgeoning NYHC scene. After releasing a exemplary debut record, the band dissolved due to differing opinions on the concept of Krishna consciousness. They original lineup had their last efforts included on the landmark PEACE double album on R Radical records. A few other songs from this session were also recorded but were never released. These tracks will be the subject of a subsequent post on this blog.
This audience recording captured on July 3, 1984 was a show on the "Rock Against Reagan" tour, as DRI and MDC were also on the bill. The recording is above average considering the technological limitations of the day and is certainly worth a download. Singer
