Verbal Abuse specialize in creating tight, powerful thrash and metal-punk. The band is orginally from Texas, and has the same intense, ultra-frenetic approach as MDC and D.R.I. What distinguishes them from those groups is the presence of ex-Sick Pleasure vocalist Nicki Sicki, who expresses hostility and nihilism rather than political concerns in his lyrics. A hot sounding release with an hilarious "mystery" track on side one.
Jeff Bale, from MRR, 1984

For some reason these guys remind me of a thrash version of the early Dead Boys, especially the snottyy, snearing vocals and the streetwise and sarcastic punk words. These guys really are an opinionated bunch fronted by veteran S.F. punk Nicki Sicki. A very powerful album, especially with their version of GF's "We're an American Band" which is blistering. Powered by Bud.
Al Flipside, from Flipside #43, 1984

1983. The East and West were engaged in the cold war, economic collapse loomed just around the corner, democracy was slowly being strangled by Reagan and Thatcher, Orwell’s vision of 1984 loomed large on the horizon and Verbal Abuse recorded their seminal album, “Just An American Band”. Having moved from Texas to San Francisco in 1981 and subsided on a diet supplied by soup kitchens and whatever else they could lay their hands whilst playing shows with MDC, The Dicks and The Big Boys, Verbal Abuse epitomised the term Hardcore. Theirs was a sound born of fury, born of righteous anger. This was hardcore in it’s rawest form, undiluted by the outside world. The band were a soundtrack to a scene still in it’s infancy, a scene that rallied and stood firm against the outside world. MTV had yet to sink it’s corporate teeth into the scene, the notion of anything pop being associated with punk rock was a joke. Whilst “American Band” may not sound as clean and polished as the slick boy band poseurs passing themselves off as punk rockers of toady, it’s power and passion remain as a testament to a time when to be hardcore, you had to live hardcore. Anything else was unacceptable. Re-issued by Beer City, along with a live set from the 1984 tour on which the band played with punk legends as The Ramones, The Dead Kennedys, Die Krezen, Poison Idea and the Cro Mags, and featuring sleeve notes from the band themselves, “Just An American Band” is the sound of liberty. The sound of an emerging force, of a band who lived it, eat it , slept it, dreamt it and did it. This is Verbal Abuse. This is Hardcore.
