A member from the initial edition of Dark Flag circa 1981-1982, guitarist Dez Cadena shifted after the music group temporarily split up in 1983 because of agreement squabbles with Unicorn/MCA. By 1984, he previously recruited two veterans from the L.A. hardcore picture (Paul Roessler and Jeff Dahl) to create DC3, a music group which pointed back again to the root base of hardcore by reworking the sludge steel of Dark Sabbath with small punk influence. Agreed upon to previous bandmember Greg Ginn’s SST Information (which also taken care of Dark Flag), the music group debuted in 1985 with This is actually the Wish. The Sabbath affects became even more understated on DC3’s two albums released in 1986, You’re Just as Blind as YOUR BRAIN COULD BE and Great Hex. A calendar year afterwards, Roessler became Twisted Root base for the self-titled LP which highlighted Cadena and Dahl but functioned even more as a single album. Roessler’s accurate single debut — in name, that’s — was 1988’s Abominable. Roessler’s third single outing under a different alias, The Crimony EP, was also released in 1988, with creation help from his brother-in-law, Mike Watt. In 1989, SST released Vida, a DC3 compilation of live materials culled from L.A. displays during the prior two years.
