Artificial Peace was formed by Pete from Red C along with Mike, Rob and Steve of Assault and Battery. They were solid and fast and they quickly managed to build one of the largest followings of all of the early bands. They were one of the first DC area bands to play out of town, always making it a point to announce that they were from Bethesda, a city just across the DC line in Maryland. Ian recorded a 19-song demo with them at Inner Ear, and three of those songs appear on the 'Flex Your Head' Sampler. They also released a split 7'' with a band called The Exiled on the Fountain of Youth label. After Artificial Peace dissolved in 1982 Pete, Steve and Mike went on to form Marginal Man and Rob later joined Government Issue and played on their '83 US tour.

Dischord Records

Artificial Peace barely lasted a year but were a major player in the early DC hardcore scene. In November 1981, they entered Inner Ear studio with Don Zientara and Ian MacKaye and laid down 17 tracks of fast and intense, yet catchy, hardcore punk, with only three of these tracks seeing the light of day as part of the 'Flex Your Head' compilation. Now, the entire recording is finally available on one release. LP includes free album download.
