Gash supplied the tapes and the artwork, while Phil paid for the manufacturing. What resulted was 1986's G.A.S.H. LP, 16 tracks of stinging hardcore with a metallic edge. In September of the same year, Reactor released the God is Dead EP to help promote the album.
The single sold out its 500 print run and was not re-pressed. The G.A.S.H. album was released in the UK on Rough Trade records in the late 80's. Depression and Gash also split a 12" on American label Flipside. Throughout the late 80's, Gash, along with Depression, complained of lack of royalties and money from the labels they dealt with, such as Metal Blade, Flipside and Rough Trade.
Later in their lifespan, Gash moved (along with Depression) to "deal" with Cleopatra records. The band released an LP and an EP on the label, and both were much more metal orientated in their sound.
