Biography

There are at least three artists with this name. (1) Ism was and is (?) an American punk band from Queens, New York, first releasing a 7-inch in 1980. The four-member group played hectic, fast punk. In some songs the band is using a keyboard or a piano that's creating a remarkable sound. Most of the original recordings are rare. Discography: Attack / Queen J.A.P., 7" single (1980, S.I.N. Records) The Big Apple Rotten to the Core, compilation LP (1982, S.I.N. Records) I Think I Love You / A7, 7" single (1983, S.I.N. Records) A Diet for the Worms, LP (1983, S.I.N. Records) I Think I Love You (The Hits That Missed 1982-1989), CD (1990) Journey Down Your Drain, CD (1996, No Label Recordings) http://www.ism-punk.com/ http://www.myspace.com/ismpunk (2) The name "Ism" was used by another band from New York in the 2000s. They released a few albums but now appear to be defunct (no new material for years and their website is down). While likely aware of the original band, they claimed to have filed a U.S. trademark for the name. (3) ISM is also a hand-carving, brick-beat-maker from England (Invincible Smiling Marcus).
