NEGATIVE FX - s/t 7"
Negative FX was a hardcore band from Boston, formed in 1981. Though the band lasted only a short time, playing a total of five shows (six flyers exist), the band was well known for their involvement in the local straight edge scene of the early 1980s. Along with members of the bands DYS and SS Decontrol, Negative FX was part of the "Boston Crew", a group of social friends who traveled around the country with SSD and other Boston hardcore bands.
Negative FX played fast and potent hardcore punk and released only a self-titled album, which was recorded in April and November 1982 at Radiobeat Studios in Kenmore Square but was not released until 1984 on Tanng! Records.
Originally Negative FX was just going to just record that first time and leave it as a radio tape, and record again for the record. This because they just did it 8 track in the first recording session but they wanted to record 16 track for the record. Then Jack Kelly hurt his knee, and things never really got back together. So another record never saw the light of day. Kelly, who frequently went by the name of "Choke" went on to form the bands Last Rights and Slapshot.
