Ism’s 1983 full-length debut A Diet For The Worms, originally available in a limited release by S.I.N. Records, dominated college radio and the CMJ radio charts while the group, fronted by the enigmatic and classically trained pianist Jism, popularized their new brand of Hardcore Punk at venues like CBGB, City Gardens and A7 alongside the likes of The Ramones and Black Flag.

Adorned with a cover featuring a baby emerging from between its mother’s legs, A Diet For The Worms offers up an unhealthy dose of slamming tunes such as “John Hinckley Jr. (What Has Jodie Done to You?),” “Man/Boy Love Sickie,” “White Castle At 3 AM,” “Life Ain’t No Bowl of Brady Bunch” and their classic affront to popular culture, “I Think I Love You.” An incredulous Robert Christgau called it " riotously memorable" and Trouser Press, “A good, scatological laugh for the vulgar at heart.”
