Album Details

Social Distortion's first ever vinyl box set, From A ‘G' to A Gent, collects the band's independent label releases from their rough and tumble punk rock beginnings to the roots rock sound that defined a generation. Includes Mommy's Little Monster (1983), Prison Bound (1988), Sex, Love and Rock ‘n' Roll (2004) and the 1995 compilation Mainliner (Wreckage From The Past) on unique colored vinyl, all in a collectable slipcase.

Mixing Springsteen's factory-overalls ethic with Southern California punk energy and black leather, punk godfathers Social Distortion have all but trademarked their sound over the past 30 some years, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that's cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of frontman Mike Ness. Their searing guitars and a locomotive rhythm section drive Ness's hard-luck tales of love, loss and lessons learned.

In addition to the early punk of The Ramones and The Clash, the band's sound was culled equally from Ness's love of roots music, specifically early country music greats like Hank Williams and the early blues recordings of the South. The group broke in 1983 with the thrashing plate of punk and displeasure Mommy's Little Monster. Their 1988 follow-up, Prison Bound, hinted at a sonic change to come, and by 2004's Sex, Love and Rock ‘n' Roll, their sound had solidified into the instantly recognizable brand of rock n' roll that's defined them ever since.
