The Mentors debut was an EP known as "Get Up and Die", which Mystic Records released in 1982. The four track record created a wave of publicity for the band and it wasn't long before they were packing clubs all along the west coast. The material here is some of the band's strongest, as the rape rock gimmick was still new and fresh.
In addition to the four tracks originally found on the EP, I've added the elusive "Police Hotel" track from the 1984 compilation, "The Sound of Hollywood". The version of this recording has never been featured on any other release. Rounding out the tracklist, I've added eight rare demo recordings done by the band in 1981. There are several featured that have never been released on any Mentors album.
Though I'm not an ardent hardcore Mentors fan, I've always enjoyed some of their more clever moments on record. The band's discography have never been given proper treatment and perhaps it's that reason alone that I include some of their more elusive work here. Enjoy!
