A Priori - 1987-1990 Discography



A Priori were an amazing band from Morristown, NJ. They didn't release much material, just the Damn the Past mini-LP and some comp tracks (on Shredder and Skene Records), but that was enough to leave a big impact on me when i first heard this stuff in the late '80s. They played a very melodic and emotional style of punk, with a bit of a UK influence. Chances are if you like any of the early Shredder bands like Sticks & Stones, Jawbreaker, Crimpshrine etc, you'll love this. Yet another band i discovered listening to Pat Duncan's radio show on WFMU. In 1988-89, the song Self-determination was a staple in Pat's playlist. This collection is missing the track from The World In Shreds Vol. 2, which is a live version of Schoolkids from the 12", and whatever is left of the '87 demo, which is most likely impossible to find. Enjoy.

  2. This was one of the bands I really liked from Pat Duncan's show on WFMU but my all time fav was Deathrage.
    I rec two A Priori shows on my trusty TEAC cassette deck dated 8-20-87 and 12-31-87. I still have the tapes, guess I should rec them to minidisc like I did with the Deathrage shows. Great band!
