"Mute your TV and put this on while watching the news." - The Big Takeover 

Ism's 1983 full-length debut A Diet For The Worms, originally available in a limited release by S.I.N. Records, dominated college radio and the CMJ radio charts while the group, fronted by the enigmatic and classically trained pianist Jism, popularized their new brand of Hardcore Punk at venues like CBGB, City Gardens and A7 alongside the likes of The Ramones and Black Flag.

Adorned with a cover featuring a baby emerging from between its mother's legs, A Diet For The Worms offers up an unhealthy dose of slamming tunes such as "John Hinckley Jr. (What Has Jodie Done to You?)," "Man/Boy Love Sickie," "White Castle At 3 AM," "Life Ain't No Bowl of Brady Bunch" and their classic affront to popular culture, "I Think I Love You." An incredulous Robert Christgau called it " riotously memorable" and Trouser Press, "A good, scatological laugh for the vulgar at heart."

Sought-after by hardcore and punk collectors, A Diet For The Worms has finally been re-issued by Ship To Shore PhonoCo. 33 1/3 years after its original release, remastered from the original master tapes and available on both aesthetically-appropriate green and purple swirl and classic black vinyl, and features a 4-page color insert with never-before-seen photos and brand-new liner notes from Ism himself as well as American Hardcore author Stephen Blush. The release also includes a download card featuring a high-quality 320kb MP3 download of the album with the non-album B-side "A7" as a bonus track.

This item is a pre-order and is estimated to ship around Q2 2024.
