Various ‎– Busted At OZ

One of the earliest compilations of Chicago-based punk rock bands. With the exception of DA, all the bands were regular performers at the Oz bar, a gay bar which hosted punk rock bands. DA's songs come from their sole performance at Oz. The band was included in exchange for Autumn Records releasing the compilation. The Oz bar closed just after the final recordings for this comp.

The LP remained out of print for nearly 30 years due to disagreements between many involved with the release. Autumn Records authorized a re-release by Permanent Records in 2011.
