Rites Of Spring "6 Song Demo" 10"


In 1983, the DC punk scene had grown and changed, and with that had come a loss of focus for many
people. The violence and nihilism that had become identified with punk rock, largely by the media,
had begun to take hold in DC and many of the older punks suddenly found themselves repelled and
discouraged by their hometown scene. It was a time of redefinition, and Rites of Spring more than
led the charge. They not only challenged the macho posturing that had become so prevalent within
the punk scene at that point, but more importantly they defied musical and stylistic rule. The people
that followed the band made it a point to never miss a gig, as ROS seemed to approach every show
as if it was their last. The results could be explosive, often resulting in the destruction of their
equipment, and this may well be one reason that they ended up playing only 15 shows. It was the
boldness of this band that really contributed to the swell of energy, often referred to as "Revolution
Summer", that swept over the DC scene in 1985.
