  BIOGRAPHIE

Government Issue (souvent appelé GI) est un groupe de hardcore straight edge formé début 1981 à Washington D.C., par le chanteur John "Stabb" Schroeder, le guitariste John Barry, le bassiste Brian Gay et le batteur Mark Aberstadt.

Brian Gay quitte rapidement Government Issue et se fait remplacer par Brian Baker. Le groupe signe sur Dischord, le label de Ian McKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Embrace...), pour enregistrer leur premier disque de 10 titres Legless Bull en juillet 1981 et réaliser quelques morceaux pour la compilation mythique, Flex Your Head. Vers la fin de cette même année, Baker remplace John Barry à la guitare et Tom Lyle devient le nouveau bassiste.

En 1982, Brian Baker quitte le groupe pour rejoindre Minor Threat. Tom Lyle prend alors sa place. Government Issue signe avec la maison de disque "Fountain of Youth" afin de réaliser en 1983 l'album Boycott Stabb, et l'ep Make an Effort.

En 1984, Mike Fellows (Rites of Spring) devient le nouveau bassiste et Brian Baker rejoint l'équipe de production pour l'enregistrement de Joy Ride.

En 1985, Fun Just Never Ends est le dernier album de Government Issue produit sur le label "Fountain of Youth". Le groupe passe alors chez "Mystic Records" pour enregistrer dans un pure esprit straight edge de Washington D.C. le 5 titres Give us stabb or give us death.

Le batteur Marc Alberstadt laisse sa place à Peter Moffett et J. Robbins devient le nouveau bassiste. Government Issue signe un contrat avec "Giant" qui produit en 1987 l'album You (LP) de 11 titres où l'on reconnaît des influences musicales des groupes du Minnesota à la manière d'Hüsker Dü.

En 1988 sort l'album intitulé Crash, certainement le plus varié, mélangeant le hardcore au rock moins puissant. Ce disque est extrêmement bien reçu par le public ainsi que par les critiques. Stabb de plus en plus las décide de mettre fin au groupe en 1989.

Lyle commencera une carrière solo et enregistrera en 1992 l'album Sanctuary. Moffett quant à lui rejoindra Wool, tandis que Robbins sera le meneur de Jawbox.
