  1. Preschool

    Preschool was a compilation album of early material from the Boston, Massachusetts hardcore punk band, Gang Green. It was recorded between 1981 – 1983 and was originally released on Taang Records before the band disbanded, reformed for the Alcohol 7" and Another Wasted Night LP, disbanded again, and reformed for their breakthrough album, You Got It. It contains material previously released on the Sold Out 7" EP, and two compilations – This Is Boston, Not L.A. and Unsafe At Any Speed. The original catalogue number for the Sold Out 7" was "TAANG01" – as this was now out-of-print, Taang released this compilation with the same catalogue number. All tracks feature the original recording three-piece line up of Chris Doherty, Mike Dean, and Bill Manley. Dean joined the Marines, managed to discharge himself and joined Jerry's Kids, another Boston band. Manley went to live in Hawaii. The band broke up until interest in all their early material surfaced and a new line-up re-entered the fray in 1984. This album was released on the same day as their first full-length studio album since 1989, Another Case Of Brewtality.
