A nice piece of Bay Area history.
"The Thing That Ate Floyd" was a double-LP comp put out by Lookout Records in 1988, featuring 34 bands. It serves as a snapshot of what the East Bay punk scene looked like in the late-80s, featuring bands like Corrupted Morals, Cringer, Isocracy, Neurosis, The Mr T Experience, No Use For A Name, The Lookouts, Crimpshrine, and Operation Ivy (to name but a few!).
Sea Of Deprivation “Catharsis of Disharmony”
Super-underrated Dystopia love from Arizona. Since I can no longer listen to Dystopia (thanks to oversaturation by oogles and scumfucks), this is my new go-to! A great band, who ended prematurely due to tragic circumstances.
Belgrado.One of my favourites.
A classic li’l piece of American punk history
A very early piece of Submission Hold history. Such a great band
"Cheap Sex And Booze" by NYC drunk punk legends Public Nuisance. This was Profane Existence’s one foray into the drunk punk world. This was so controversial due to its apolitical/drunk message that Profane didn’t repress it afterward. It’s pretty rare, and I’ve been looking for it forever. Killer punk shitz for when you don’t want to think too much.
A real gem. The first Neurosis EP, back when they were a punk band!
I saw this band open for The Mob in Oakland this past May, and I fell in love. Great Portland post-punk. This single was put out as part of the All The Madmen singles series volume 2.
The finest Sacrilege material on two discs!
Here’s a true gem for all the Albertans out there.
Classic 90s political street punk from Edmonton’s Glory Stompers. This is their first LP, when they were all still wee punk kids… before they cropped up and became an Oi band. You might recognize singer Greg as the same Greg who would go on to front the Subway Thugs, Lancasters, Alternate Action, and Bishops Green
