The Resistance - Uprising (Cassette Only, 1985)

Only saw The Resistance once, at the EMU dining hall in early 1985. All I remember is the singer Gary wearing a beret and being annoyed that the crowd just sat there and didn't react at all. You'd think the guy had never played a show in Eugene before. This was the band's only official release although I heard they recorded a full-length too. I believe they broke up quickly and were only around for a few months. Anyone know more? I think this is a nice post-punk effort.

  1. Singer lives in Nor. Cal and is very involved with environmental/human rights groups. Drummer lives up in Seattle, has played in a ton of shitty bands up here, I should know I've been in half of them.

  2. The drummer wouldn't happen to have kept a copy of the Resistance full-length would he?
