Descendents - All LP
DESCENDENTS (USA) - ALL (SST Records Re-press) (sealed LP copy - colour unknown). "ALL" is the fourth full-length studio album by the American Punk Rock band the Descendents, originally released in 1987 through SST Records. It was the band's first album with bassist Karl Alvarez and guitarist Stephen Egerton, who brought new songwriting ideas to the group.
The album is titled after the concept of "All" invented by drummer Bill Stevenson and friend Pat McCuistion in 1980. Based on the goals of achieving "the total extent" and "to not settle for some, to always go for All", the philosophy was the subject of the one-second title track, the two-second "No, All!", and "All-O-Gistics".
"ALL" marked the end of the Descendents' original run. Following two tours of the United States to promote the album, singer Milo Aukerman left the group to pursue a career in biochemistry. The band was relaunched under the new name ALL, and released eight albums with other singers between 1988 and 1995, before reuniting with Aukerman under the Descendents name once again.
