Bedlam Hour were a straight edge hardcore band from South Carolina. They formed in the mid 1980s and combined elements of different punk scenes to create something all their own. They had the quick drumming of the SoCal scenes with the distorted chorus-effected guitars of the DC scene with a sense of humor and impressive musicianship. Their debut LP Rock The Cradle was released on Positive Force Records in 1987 and they continued playing well into the next decade, releasing more EPs and a split with fellow SC hardcore band Stretch Arm Strong. This original four-sided Bedlam Hour shirt, heavily faded and nicely worn in, references their song from the Stupid By The Grace Of God 7" compilation, "Frankenberry Mosh."
