VERBAL ABUSE is a hardcore punk band, originally from Houston, which became successful after moving to San Francisco. Verbal Abuse was started in Houston in 1981 after singer and songwriter Roy Hansen, alias Nicki Sicki, quit the band Sick Pleasure and moved to Virginia, then back to Texas when he decided he wanted to start another band. At the time, not many bands were playing fast hardcore in Texas and, like D.R.I. and M.D.C. before them, Verbal Abuse relocated to San Francisco in the end of 1981. In San Francisco, Verbal Abuse lived at the infamous "Vats" along with members of The Dicks and M.D.C. as well as Harley Flanagan from the Cro-Mags. By the end of the year, they had signed with Fowl Records and recorded their first LP, Just an American Band, which was released in the beginning of 1983.

Debut album of Verbal Abuse and one of the first recordings in the world that deserves to be described as "hardcore". Basic and simple music, lightweight and fast. A real adrenaline rush pogo dance to the limit. The only hard disk ... 16 minutes. But it's great and full of energy!!
