35 Years Ago: MINOR THREAT record Salad Days


I'm glad to have been in that band, but that band will never reform. Because it can never be the same. I want it to be what it is. That's why we made the discography. That's why we broke up. It's like, we're done. Bang. Finished.

MINOR THREAT recorded their final EP on this day in 1983 at Don Zientara's Inner Ear Studios. Salad Days wouldn't be released by Dischord until July 1985, two years after the band had split.

The last song is a cover of THE STANDELL's "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White" (1966).

I don't miss the 'salad days'. While I do think that the music from the early punk days was incredible, and for me, absolute, the fact remains that it has been done. That's why I think music today is more important, because it's about the doing. There is still work to do.
