DOWNCAST self titled LP

One of my favourite screamo/political bands of all time is Downcast. This LP was released on Ebullition Records a long time ago and then remixed. This is the original mix.
From the Ebullition Records website:
"The LP cover is also a 20 page booklet that includes lyrics, pictures, and a lot of text written by the band members.

There are two different versions of this LP. The first 3,000 records are scribed as Ebullition #4 on the inner groove of the record. This version had a different mix and doesn't sound all that great. After these were sold the LP was re-mixed and re-mastered, and then it was re-released as Ebullition #6. The only way to tell the difference is to check the scribe on the inner groove.

In the early '90s Downcast toured the United States with Born Against and Rorschach. After their LP was released they then toured Europe.

Downcast also had one song on the Give Me Back comp LP, as well as one song on the Voice Of The Voiceless compilation LP.

After Downcast broke up the various members went on to form Not For The Lack of Trying, Jara, and Born & Raised."
