In 1985 UPRIGHT CITIZENS have been the first german hardcore-punk band that went on tour in the USA. In the bandhistory “Open eyes, open ears, brains to think and a mouth to speak!” counts as the most successful release of the band. Back in those days there was a US pressing released on Better Youth Organization and a little later once again in germany by the band itself with an enhanced tracklisting. For this official Re-issue the artwork of front- and backcover has been revised. A must-have for all friends of the good old 80ies hardcore punk.
