Long before his killer harmonies with Jerry Cantrell in Alice in Chains, William DuVall did what many teens do and played in a punk band. And for Record Store Day this year, fans of the AIC co-vocalist will get to hear some of his early work playing in the hardcore punk outfit Neon Christ when their 1984 compilation gets a reissue.
The 14-song set features material written by DuVall during the titular year when he was just 16. Ten of the tracks previously appeared on the Atlanta-based self-titled 7" vinyl EP Neon Christ. The remaining tracks were recorded later that same year.
