Nation of Ulysses - 13-Point Program to Destroy America


Very influential yet short-lived DC political punk/post-hardcore band. Known for their intensity, they weren't afraid to show their varied range of influences from Ornette Coleman to political instigator Guy Debord and his "Situationist International" collective. It's more proof that Dischord is one of the best indie labels ever.

They also published a zine called "Ulysses Speaks" which was handed out at their shows.  You can read some of them here.

Get the album HERE.

    The first side of this album sounded like it was recorded in one take as you can hear Ian breathing between a couple of tunes after knocking out that trumpet!!
