  1. The ‘Subversion’ song on this tape is called Instigators Of War. It was recorded live at the Kwint in Zonhoven (Bel) on May 20th 1983. The full set (about 30 minutes) was recorded with a portable cassette-recorder in the back of venue. The quality of the original recordings is much better than what is on this tape.


  2. The first ‘S.O.I.’ line-up (Feb. ’85) was me, Kenny (bass), Andrew (guitar), Matt (drums).
    The drummer’s dad objected to his son playing in a band with an objectionable name so, not wanting to lose the only person who would drum with us, we changed the name (sell outs!).
    By the time we recorded Hayseed Hardcore (May ’85), Dave replaced Matt and Glenn joined on second guitar.
