United Mutation were the flagship act on DSI Records in the early 1980s. Based in Northern Virginia, United Mutation attracted the interest of household punk names Ian MacKaye who partnered with the band for a split label release on Dischord Records and Jello Biafra who insisted United Mutation open a Washington DC gig for the Dead Kennedys. Never prolific at gigging, United Mutation managed to get out releases over the years on not only their own DSI Records and spin off Living Nightengale but also German labels Bitzcore and Lost and Found. United Mutation vocalist Mike Brown's unique delivery has ensured that fans of the crust punk sub genre continue to spend collector's prices on old vinyl releases as they surface from time to time on eBay.
