Well here we are with another gem of a jam dredged from the murky past of the Connecticut "New Wave“ (as they called it then; either that or “punk rock“) scene. Reflex From Pain can be viewed as the missing link between VIOLENT CHILDREN, 76% UNCEERTAIN, YOUTH OF TODAY and SHELTER. REFLEX existed concurrently with VIOLENT CHILDREN. Ray drummed for V.C. and tried out singing for the first time in REFLEX (“Peer Pressure” is, in fact, a V.C. song). The instrumental part from REFLEX came from a variety of lesser known bands and shortly after REFLEX formed the nucleus of 76 (“Knife In My Back”, “You’re The Hate” and “Someone’s Waiting” all made the translation from PAIN to UNCERTAIN). When Ray decided to record the first SHELTER 12”, it was this line up of REFLEX that became SHELTER (with the addition of Tom Capone). Not only that, out Jeff R. remained to produce! So there you have it, the historical context of these recordings.
