ATAVISTIC-From Within-(Self Released-UK-1986)

ATAVISTIC formed from the remnants of two earlier Punk bands MENTAL BLOCKAGE and CRIES OF AGONY, are perhaps the most well-known band to emerge from the Kent Hardcore Punk scene of the 80s. 
The chaotic hybrid of Crust/Grind which featured on their first two 7" EPs evolved into a slightly groovier Motorhead/Blues-tinged Thrash on their only LP, complete with the addition of distorted harmonica solos.

John was later tragically killed in a motorcycle accident.
Patrick McKernan went to become a solo folk/blues performer.(info taken from their freewebs.com  page)
