All the hits in one place, plus a booklet featuring extensive liner notes, photos and lyrics. Alternative Tentacles is proud to present the first-ever complete, three-volume collection of Texas punk legends Really Red.

None of their catalog has been available for years-some not for decades! Really Red was the backbone of Houston's underground from the early punk era clear through '80s hardcore.

Like The Dicks in Austin, they directly challenged an insanely violent police department at no small risk to their own lives.

Their sound itself incorporated art and post-punk elements, with a musical and lyrical depth on par with bands like Mission of Burma, Wire, or Dead Kennedys.

Singer Ronnie Bond (a.k.a. U-Ron Bondage) was never afraid to push intelligence or mess with Texas.

Kelly Younger's guitar style is as unique in its own way as that of The Gang of Four's Andy Gill, while Bob Weber's taut, precise and sometimes unorthodox drum patterns would not be heard again until the likes of John Wright of NoMeansNo.

It's all driven forward by the driving, elastic basslines of John Paul Williams. This collection presents the sound better then it has ever been, so hear them again for the first time-or the first time ever.

For CD buyers, Teaching You The Fear: The Complete Collection 1978-1985 has it all in one double-disc set: The classic Teaching You the Fear LP, the long-lost second album, Rest In Pain, all their soughtafter 7-inches, and some unreleased gems to boot.

It comes with full history and liner notes via Bond's extensive interview with David Ensminger (Left of the Dial).

Restored from the original tapes, lovingly re-mastered by Jello Biafra, this is the best all-around sound Really Red has ever had!
