SOREX "Portrait Of A Prisoner"

Estimated Shipping Widget will be displayed here! (with custom color)

Hailing from Redondo Beach, California, Sorex released just a single 7” EP – three tracks of no-fi, snotty-yet-abrasive beach hardcore – in a 200-copy micro pressing in 1985, and played a scant dozen or so shows up and down the California coast before fading into hardcore record collector obscurity.

Radio Raheem’s crack team of hardcore archaeologists have since managed to rescue Sorex’s elusive EP from the collector ghetto and tack on 17 additional tracks, culled from the band’s 1984 demo tape and sessions for a never-released 1985 LP, all accompanied by a 16-page, full-color booklet full of rare photos, flyers and ephemera.

Limited to 500 copies.
