Radiation Deluxe Series present a reissue of The Crowd's A World Apart, originally released in 1981.
"It is impossible to overstate the significance of The Crowd to the nascent L.A. hardcore scene. Whilst
bands like early Agent Orange and Social Distortion were playing to handfuls of fans in northern Orange
County, in 1979 The Crowd were already filling backyards on their home turf in Huntington Beach, California.
Ironically, it was further afield in the San Gabriel Valley that I first saw them perform, opening for the still
punk Go-Go's in a small club. Without the continuing success of The Crowd in 1979 and throughout the
summer of 1980, I would have packed my bags for London. Instead, the L.A. hardcore scene lifted off!"
--Robbie Fields, Poshboy Records. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.
