Media Disease

Five years ago I was lucky to get Banned In DC. Thanks to this book, I knew about many amazing DC bands I'd never heard before. Almost at the same time I noticed about the existence of Mixed Nuts Don't Crack album, a great compilation by not-so-well-known DC bands. Each one deserves attention and recognition: Nuclear Crayons, Chalk Circle, Hate From Ignorance (Monica Richard's first band), Social Suicide, United Mutation and… Media Disease. As for these guys, their sound was great but it seems there is no info about them anywhere. And the saddest thing is they didn't release any record back then.

Hey Eduard, Lost & Found Records put out a great double 7" by these guys in the 90s. Just thought I'd let you know. It's a cool record. Cheers!
