Biography

Red C was an early 1980s punk band on the Dischord label. They had a unique approach to music and this resulted in a sound quite different from what most of their label mates were playing at the time.

They only played six or seven shows before breaking up, but they managed to record a demo tape at Hit & Run in the summer of 1981, and songs from that session appeared on the Flex Your Head Dischord sampler. There may have been a second demo recorded in their basement that featured more of their songs, but all of the tapes seem to have disappeared after Toni Young died of pneumonia in the mid-80s.

The band name is thought to have come from a favorite Ethiopian restaurant in DC called Red Sea, though there were other theories floating around and the band was not telling.

    This band is amazing, ceremony do a good cover, but the original version of pressure's on, is the 'original' so i dont think there should any comparison, the sound back then and the sound now are two totally different things, they both are equally as good.
