History

Knightmare was a New Hampshire-born hard rock and heavy metal band dating back to 1980, which sported graffiti instead of a logo. The group was formed by Al Mead - a GG Allin collaborator - and got progressively faster and heavier with an accelerating image reminiscent of At War. This Knightmare issued a 7” EP called Still Insane After All This Treatment in 1983 and The Battle From Within EP two years later. With no deal in sight the group’s next move was a demo in 1986 and 1987 and ultimately 1987’s album issued through the independent Beaner City. The album featured a cover of the Dead Boys’ Sonic Reducer, which had appeared on Overkill’s debut a year earlier. The band threw in the towel in 1990, but played a one-off show in 2001.
