Verbal Abuse isn't a huge name in the punk world, but they made some noteworthy contributions to the Bay Area punk scene of the '80s. Although Verbal Abuse was formed in Texas, they moved to San Francisco in 1981 and became part of the same scene that boasted Fear and the Dead Kennedys - and they were perfect for that scene because they were such an angry, combustible, in-your-face band. This Beer City CD has no problem capturing Verbal Abuse's vitality.
