Code Of Honor / Sick Pleasure
Long awaited vinyl reissue for one of the hidden gems of California Punk Rock. Sick Pleasure formed in 1980 when guitarist Michael Fox, future co-owner of San Francisco's legendary punk and industrial label Subterranean, teamed up with skaters Sal Paradise and Dave Chavez, and the infamous Niki Sicki. The band lasted until 1982 when it just "wasn't fun anymore". At this point Sick Pleasure had no material on wax and it seemed as if they would have gone down in history as another forgotten band of the hardcore era. The three members aside from Niki went on to form Code of Honor and Niki went on to form Verbal Abuse in Houston. This was in late 1981, when Michael Fox's new roomate Johnithin Christ, also the singer in the SF punk band Society Dog, stepped in on vocals and formed Code of Honor. In late 1982, after Code of Honor had established themselves, they released a split record featuring songs by both bands. Fully authorized by the original label and by founding member for both bands Sal Paradise, finally you get an affordable alternative to fill in that void in your California punk record collection.
