Bad Religion Live in Dusseldorf, 1992 (FM Broadcast)

After the ferocious one-two punch of Suffer and then No Control Bad Religion began toying with their sound. The changes were not drastic, as they had been on the prog-rock, non-classic Into the Unknown, but beginning with Against the Grain and growing more pronounced with Generator (powered by the stronger drumming of Bobby Schayer) the band's musical straitjacket got loosened. While the band would make more use of slower tempos, complex vocal arrangements and abstract lyrics they would always return to their safe harbour of loud, fast n' accusatory within a song or two. Many fans think the band took a turn for the worse in his era but this early nineties span of albums (yes, I admit Recipe for Hate has some dead-ends) does contain a lot of Bad Religion's best moments. With that in mind, let's check out this German radio broadcast from the Generator era and and abide by Mr. Brett's words, "I'll remain unperturbed by the joy and the madness that I encounter everywhere I turn".

  1. Hey, let us know what you think of '92 era BR right HERE!

  2. Against the Grain and Stranger than Fiction remain two great albums. I was not too keen on Generator upon its release. In hindsight, though, it is a solid and at times great record. Recipe for hate and other of the post-Mr. Brett releases are flat and inconsistent when compared to the great late 1980s and early 1990s releases.
