Catholic Discipline "Underground Babylon"

Out now! The first ever release of material from the legendary CATHOLIC DISCIPLINE. This is the same band that was fronted by Slash writer, and resident wild-man, Claude Bessy (r.i.p.). This band also featured Phranc (the world's best Jewish lesbian folk-singer), Robert Lopez (from the ZEROS and now known as 'El Vez'), Craig Lee r.i.p. from the BAGS), and Rick Jaffe (from BPEOPLE), and others at various times. After working with the surviving band members, Claude's wife and friends, we are proud to release this definitive record that will serve as both a CATHOLIC DISCIPLINE and Claude Bessy tribute. We were able to uncover several live recordings and some studio stuff from Claude as well as many previously unpublished photos of the band.

Release Details:

CD includes a 12 page booklet complete with band history, individual band member profiles, previously unpublished photographs, and original flyer art.
