Really Red was the backbone of Houston, Texas' underground from the early punk era clear through 80's hardcore. Like The Dicks in Austin, they directly challenged an insanely violent policed department at no small risk to their own lives. Their sound itself had more art and post-punk elements than most, with a musical and lyrical depth on par with bands like Mission of Burma, Wire and Dead Kennedys.

Singer Ronnie Bond (aka U-Ron Bondage) was never afraid to push intelligence or mess with Texas. Kelly Younger's guitar style is as unique in its own way as that of The Gang of Four's Andy Gill, while Bob Weber's taut, precise and sometimes unorthodox drum patterns would not be heard again until the likes of John Wright of NoMeansNo. It's all driven forward by the driving, elastic basslines of John Paul Williams.

1981's Volume 1: Teaching You The Fear is the band's much loved first album. More manic and locked-in than their early singles, this is Really Red in their absolute prime; fired up and focused to lay down what they likely thought was their one shot to get it all on vinyl. The title track even calls out specific murders by the Houston cops that they wouldn't even admit were crimes. Restored from the original tapes and re-mastered by Jello Biafra to sound better then ever!
