The Dispossessed on Lost Grave


The Disposssessed
The Best of 1986-1988

Connecticut’s proto-goth / post-punk pioneers, The Dispossessed, had an amazingly productive albeit far-too-short career. The Dispossessed combined 60’s garage rock sounds with a guitar-driven take on post-punk/modern rock into songs that managed to be dark, catchy, sardonic, and sparkling at once.

In their short time together, they released a 7” ep, and an LP. The Best of The Dispossessed presents 14 of their songs, including 2 from a 2003 reunion. This is a limited edition release – 100 copies only. Hand-printed arigato-pak covers (silkscreen black/silver) with insert.
