I've Had Enough of American Dreams

Articles of Faith - American Dreams.mp3
released 20 years ago on the seminal LP "Give Thanks", AOF sounds just as vital and vitriolic today as they did in the early 80's. AOF were a Chicago band that combined three guitars, intelligent and cutting lyrics, and lightspeed rythym into supersonic hardcore. Their message is still timely today. The entire AOF catalog has been re-released on Alternative Tentacles. Lead singer Vic Bondi is still railing against the problems of society and playing music, on occasion.
