D.I. originally started in 1982 in Orange County, California. Vocalist Casey Royer has kept a revolving door of members throughout their career but their sound has always had that southern California hardcore sound. Very reminiscent of the Adolescents, who Casey played drums for. They released a classic E.P. in 1983 followed by this great full-length in 1985. D.I. has continued to tour and periodically released music. In 2011 brainiac Casey was busted for O.D.ing on heroin while watching t.v. with his kid.
