God And The State - Ruins LP


God And The State were from Los Angeles and existed for less than 2 years. It seems they only did about 3 or 4 gigs. Members were David Hull on guitar and vocals who was originally from Toronto, Canada, and Barbara Ann Jaeckel on bass and vocals who came from Detroit. Drums were played by Kevin Barrett (100 Flowers, Radwaste).
In their short existence they managed to record these tracks in 1983. The album saw the light of day 2 years later. Only 1000 copies pressed so it's hard to get these days. But here's the good news. The Urinals reformed so did their label Happy Squid. It looks like some copies of the 'Ruins' LP were found 'lying under the bed'. So if you want to obtain a vinyl copy, act fast. Don't think this will ever get re-released. For more info click here.
Sleeve was made by the Independent Project Press (Savage Republic).
