Dissent - Boy Eats Own Head (Amity Records) 1988

South Dakota isn’t a state well represented in my music collection, and I can’t imagine in too many others really. Dissent were from there, a hardcore band that existed in the late 1980’s and one who put out the excellent “Boy Eats Own Head!” EP in 1988. This record reminds me of some of the Lookout Records releases from that time period, melodic hardcore with similar production.

    This 7′ really brings me back to late 80’s. Genuine US stuff from that age. If I’m not mistaken “Society” also appeared in a compilation…..
    Nice post:) Thanks to Scott!!!

  2. meandaddy60 Says:

    Excellent post Scott….there were literally dozens of bands in “out of the way” towns that got little recognition. This is a great representation of what was going on in the backwoods. They played a show in Colorado Springs and shared some bills with EXPATRIATE.

  3. stunt Says:

    I remember hearing about this band back in the late 80’s but never had the chance to hear this single. thanks for the share Scott.

  4. SoCal Punk Says:

    Wow! Thanks a lot for posting this 7″. I was really bummed out since I could find my old vinyl copy…

  5. matt Says:

    some other gems to check out from S.D. (rapid city scene)…
    - State of the Union (demonic crust with tons of samples)
    - Resin (ridiculous powerviolence that did a split with Still Life, called “mutilating emo wussies since the dawn of rock and roll”)
    - Social Joke
    - Reddmen (kind of Young Pioneers-ish, but more poppy, and if i have it right, yes, they’re sioux)

    Saw Dissent play with a couple Ft Collins bands one summer and the drummer kicked the shit out of some asshole that was punching little girls in the tits, By the way he was in his underwear, I so appreciate this posting to get some of these tunes back in my ears and maybe to some new ears that desperatly need to hear it too

  7. Beert Says:

    I am currently in a band with 2 former members of this band. The original guitarist/singer and the singer that replaced him that is on this 7″. Both still live in Rapid City, SD.

  8. Dennis Says:

    Awsome ep!

  9. jimmy Coffill Says:

    this band also put out 2 LP’s and a Split with Colorado’s Dead Silence.
    Anyone but me remember that?

  10. Terry Taylor Says:

    I still have all my vinyl from Dissent and Dead Silence. I remember seeing Dissent play like it was yesterday. They helped mold a lot of my beliefs that I still hold to this day. Great band, great dudes. Nuff said.

  11. joe Says:

    saw dissent and dead silence several times together back in ft. collins. still have the LPs. amazing memories. especially the benefit show in Ft Co back in 87. i have a ton of dissent flyers.
