Part art piece, part punk, part metal: The controversial Plasmatics broke taboos and blew the lid off what critics and audiences alike knew as punk music. Incorporating theatrics, barking vocals and a focus on end-of-the-world visions, 1980’s New Hope For the Wretched is a technically solid punk record from a groundbreaking band.
Drastic Plastic Records is pleased to present our superb repressing of Plasmatics’ first album in all its chainsaw-guitar-solo glory, along with poster and insert, recreated from its original release.
