NOT EVERYONE JUMPED ON THE AYATOLLA-BASHING BANDWAGON in late 1980. Indeed, Benedict Arnold & the Traitors
(daringly-named!) positively gloated over America's corporate humiliation at the hands of the mullahs and university
students of Tehran. "Kill the Hostages" (rhyming with "make them into sausages") is from their very scarce first.
"Damaged" comes from their somewhat more common second, which is punkier and not quite as in-your-face: there's a
repackage of all this and more early material available through MP3.com and the Benedict Arnold website. -- Liner notes,
