The New York hardcore scene in the 1980s produced some of the most influential
and iconic bands of its time but non of which were as unique and diverse as
MAXIMUM PENALTY. Lead singer Jim Williams along with guitarists Joseph Affe
and Brian Gocher, drummer Mark Libetti and bassist Mildred Martinez set out from
three of the five boros in New York to bring together a new hybrid of NYHC. Like
many other hardcore bands before them they went into Sty in Sky Studios and
recorded nine songs, eight of which would become the now infamous Demo 89
along with two songs to be released later that year on Blackout Records Where
The Wild Things Are compilation.
For the first time in its entirety Reaper Records and MAXIMUM PENALTY have
put together a piece of NYHC history in a limited 1,000 colored vinyl package. This
30th anniversary release captures the bands inception from ’88–’89 with never
before seen photos, artwork and flyers of the original line up. With this record
finally becoming available, MAXIMUM PENALTY head back into the studio to start
working on there long awaited follow up to Life & Times with Reaper Records.
