S.S. Decontrol / SSD;

Listed Below is all of the known Tour Dates, Album, E.P. & Singles release dates that I have info on from this short lived Boston hardcore band. I know there is a hell of a lot more info out there so if you can help let me know.  I'm after any Tickets scans, Tour Posters / Flyers, Tour Shirts, Magazine Adverts etc. hector.kirkwood @ gmail.com
I built this and other pages for some of the bands I like as I could not find any decent info on the net anywhere, these are mainly for my own entertainment but if anyone else enjoys them then it's a bonus, enjoy.
