Flag Of Democracy FOD World on Limited Edition Import LP
FOD World is the sixth full-length effort from long running Pennysylvania hardcore punk band Flag of Democracy originally released on Creep Records in 2000. "Other bands played fast but I think we were the first kind of U.S.-hardcore fast, that Gang Green fast, that Hüsker Dü fast," says Jim McMonagle, guitarist, singer and one of the founding members of FOD. The lineup hasn't changed since Dave Rochon (bass) and Bob Walker (drums) joined back in 1983 and 1986 respectively. Philadelphia punk veteran Chuck Meehan notes that, "[FOD is] one of the lone bands of that era and milieu who stayed intact, developed and continuously evolved and experimented while maintaining their original energy level."
