Dag Nasty Wig Out At Denko's on LP
Dag Nasty started in the summer of 1985, made up of ex-members of Minor Threat and Bloody Mannequin Orchestra. Through the years, they cycled through 3 different singers, 2 bass players, and 3 drummers in their four year active existence (1985-1988). The band itself had a huge impact on the world of underground music, due to the fact that Dag Nasty practically introduced melodic hardcore in the mid-'80s. Although the group was more accessible and melodic than Minor Threat or similar bands, they never lost their bracing, blistering edge. Dag Nasty recorded their energetic debut album, Can I Say (1986) with D.C.-punk guru Ian MacKaye. The following year, vocalist Dave Smalley left the group; he was replaced by Peter Cortner, who added more pop elements to the band's sound on their 1987 follow-up Wig Out at Denko's.
