More Info:

Falling somewhere between Soulside, Ignition, and The Chocolate Watchband, Vile Cherubs were a short-lived and puzzling band that for a brief window in 1986-88 man- aged to captivate, confuse, and annoy the D.C. punk scene.Consisting of high school classmates Tim Green, Jesse Quitlsund, and Ben Wides-along with Green's childhood friend Seth Lorinczi-the Vile Cherubs were more focused on the then-forgotten sounds of '60s garage rock and psychedelia than on Minor Threat. Being minors themselves, they likely would've remained trapped in the school-dance circuit were it not for Geoff Turner (Gray Matter / 3), who took an interest in the band and recorded their two demos.That first tape caught the ear of d.c. space booker Cynthia Connolly, who despite her initial skepticism paired them with Didjits, Cynics, and other noteworthy bands. Rumors of a potential Dischord album built all through 1987, ending with mysterious suddenness after label co-owner Jeff Nelson dropped in on a rehearsal to find a miasma of LSD, alcohol, feedback, and vomit.Though the band released a posthumous LP in 1988, the original Geoff Turner demos explain why the D.C. scene briefly lost it's shit over these teen ne'er-do-wells. Lovingly and exhaustively resuscitated by audio maestro Tim Green from the original multitrack tapes, "Lysergic Lamentations" is the Vile Cherubs at the height of their brief existence.
