Unwanted - Shattered Silence

The Unwanted from Winnipeg. This album has a slight metal influence, the songs are good but a bit boring. I saw them live but can't remember who else played, maybe Youth Brigade.

BYO Records/Headbutt Records, 1984


  1. You probably saw The Unwanted & Youth Brigade at the BYO show in Winnipeg at The Playhouse Theatre in August 1984. Also on the bill were Personality Crisis, SNFU & Stretch Marks. This was only the second gig I ever went to. One of the best ones as well.

  2. Well, I'm from REgina so I saw them at the Shniztel Hause. PC and Stretch Marks didn't play unfortunately but one of the best shows I've seen.

  3. Live, the Unwanted were Unpredictable. On a good night they were Good, on a bad night, IT SHOWED!!! .By the time this Lp was released, Randy Rusu had joined on 2nd guitar and the band went from unpredictable to brilliant overnight. This record is very much of the time and hasn't dated well but this is when the band was at its peak as a live unit. Sadly,it didn't last long
