Check out this new review for Big Takeover Magazine of the Beaver 12″ LP released last year on Dr. Strange Records….

In 1981, if you were trawling for hardcore 7’’ records that had more than three songs per side, chances are you ran across a strange- looking EP by DC’s ominously-monikered Beaver, perhaps the weirdest hardcore record in existence then. Its 10 songs were played at an extreme, breakneck speed rife with dense production, odd time signatures, and metal and reggae breakdowns—not exactly standard fare. It can now be revealed, this record marks future-Government Issue guitarist Tom Lyle’s debut recording, and it’s available again on a remastered, remixed, expanded LP that pivots a hotly remixed version of the original EP on one side against nine songs from two earlier demos on the other. My “Buy or Die” pick of the issue! (rarepunk.com)

Beaver “s/t” LP Reissue: Album Review via Freedom of Expression Blog (Frank Foe)

Beaver “s/t” LP Dr. Strange KBD Reissue
BEAVER
“s/t” LP
Dr. Strange Records
ReleaseD: September 20, 2013



Tom Lyle (aka Tom Cleaver in Beaver) eventually ended up in Government Issue. Beaver, originally recorded these tracks for the now “Killed By Death”, DC HardCore 7” that had an original press of 300.



I love this passage from punkvinyl.com:

Beaver started out as a solo project of Tom Lyle’s. Then it became a real band, albeit short lived. Here’s a brief story Tom shared with me.
I was in a DC progressive/new waver band, but became VERY bored with the whole scene. After seeing the Dead Kennedys in April 81 at the 9:30, and then the Government Issue/Youth Brigade/Minor Threat show in June 81 at the 9:30 I started making home demo tapes of me playing all the instruments in the most hardcore style I could come up with. I wanted to get a band together to play out live and used they rhythm section from Square One, the awful band I was in at the time. Then we got asked to record a record for Choice Cuts.

That’s how it was. Hear a band, see a band, change your life… just like that.
Dr. Strange has reissued this on LP, (400 on black vinyl, 100 on white vinyl) and added some demo tracks, also recorded in 1981.

This is rudimentary hardcore, typical for the early 1980s. Tom Lyle eventually ended being an inspiration for me on guitar. I love his guitar style on all of the Government Issue material. I own a Marshall because of him. This is the roots, the developmental stage. Having been involved in hardcore during this time period, I have a certain affinity for all of this material.

Considering the early stage of hardcore, how fast this genre evolved, the lack of technology available for recording, Beaver, and all of their contemporaries were a part of something huge.

This is mandatory if you love hardcore.

Cheers,
Frank FOE
