Recorded in and released on the cassette-only label ROIR on February 5,many fans refer to it as " The Yellow Tape " because of its yellow packaging, much in the way that the Beatles ' self-titled record is often called " The White Album ".
Named for its location between 10th and 11th Streets on Avenue A, A was a foot room with a stage at one end and an elevated sound-proof booth at the other.
The band liked the sound and returned to A to record between August and October The cover art depicts DC's Liban - KSU - Pod Prąd Building being struck by a bolt of lightning. November - Colleen - A Flame My Love, A Frequency original edition of the cassette had a white spine on the J-card and a red or yellow cassette shell.
Subsequent editions had an all-yellow J-card with either red, gold, or green cassette shells, in a nod toward band's Rastafarian leanings. Later versions appeared in solid white, solid orange, solid yellow and transparent red tape shells. Because the yellow cassette shell was most common and it came in a matching yellow package, many fans referred to it as " The Yellow Tape ". In the Dead Kennedys ' record label Alternative Tentacles opened an office in the United Kingdom to issue special editions of records by American punk bands for the UK market.
The record's sleeve featured the same lightning-strikes-the-Capitol art that appeared on the ROIR cassette, and the back cover had the inner J-card's band photo, credits, lyrics, and Kaplan's liner notes.
Because Alternative Tentacles UK was a short-lived venture, the Bad Brains EP is rare, and for eight years was the only appearance of these songs on vinyl. When the album was first released, fans and critics alike were stunned to learn that the musicians behind this album — one of the fastest albums of all time upon its release — were African-American Rastafarians who also were skilled at reggae. The album was a crucial step in the evolution of hardcore punk and the eventual fusion of hard rock and reggae adopted later by bands Sailin On - Bad Brains - Attitude (The ROIR Sessions) SublimeFishboneand To this day, many people involved in the hardcore scene regard it as one of the greatest hardcore albums of all time and a groundbreaking release for the hardcore punk genre.
The instrumental final track on Bad Brainstitled "Intro", became the first nine seconds of Rock for Light' s title song.
