Formed in 1982, this Austin, Texas, post-hardcore noise group laid the groundwork for much of the distorted, grinding alternative punk rockers of the '90s. Scratch Acid originally featured Steve Anderson (vocals), David Wm. Sims (guitar), Brett Bradford (guitar), David Yow (bass), and Rey Washam (drums). After several line-up changes they released their first self-titled EP in 1984. After two more releases they disbanded in 1987, but Sims and David Yow reunited to form the Jesus Lizard in 1989, which picked up where Scratch Acid left off. This posthumous compilation album contains 28 tracks, including their self-titled debut EP (1984), their full-album 'Just Keep Eating' (1986) and the 'Berserker EP' (1987).
