TERMINAL MIND, formed in 1978, was one of the early first-wave punk acts in Austin,TX. Based far from the urban roots of a genre in itÕs earliest stages, the band absorbed influences as disparate as Pere Ubu, Roxy Music, John Cale, and Wire. The life span was short, but their influence touched many of the next generation of Texas noise and hardcore acts as they shared bills with fellow proto-punks The Huns and Standing Waves at Raul's, The Big Boys on U.T. campus, and even opened for Iggy Pop at the Armadillo World Headquarters.
Includes the band's complete 4-song EP originally released in 1979, along with a complete performance from Live At Raul;s (1980 Austin,TX punk comp), and bonus unreleased studio and live performances never before available.
