INFANTRY – Calming The Fire EP (1987)
Infantry was an indie rock trio that held court in San Diego, CA during the mid-late 80’s. As you can hear in the samples below, the production was limited in scope, but these guys still put forth a valiant effort of guitar driven modern rock. Big vocal choruses, driving guitars, prominent drumming and high octane characterize this threesome’s only limited output. We can only imagine what kind of sounds would have been achieved with extra production efforts and money behind them…oh well, there were many like them finding early exits in the alternative music circles…This five song album was privately pressed on BOB Records in San Diego, CA. The inner sleeve lyric sheet has a artful collage of pictures on one side and lyrics on the other..nice touch…. We’ve provided a couple of the more mentionable songs in the below stream and download….
