New England

Continuing from the previous post on a regional punk theme here's a CD of bands from New England and maybe other places. If I make an error I'm more than likely to generate a comment from the void of cyber space. http://rapidshare.com/files/167294800/New_england.rar

Ann Arbor Hardcore

This morning I decided to sort my CDs out as they were well out of order. I came across many which I will have to relisten to. This CD is a compilation of bands from Ann Arbor, MI, plus maybe some other places (Shitloads of Fuckall are Canadians). I had the "Pink " LP by Ground Zero which was released in 1985 on Reflex, but it was pretty lame and I sold it. These tracks must be from an earlier time as they are much more hardcore. Maybe they come from around the "Lung Cookies" comp in 1983. I think I got these from the following website: http://wdean.fatcow.com/old_shit.html It now has 140 MP3s from 19 local bands so go in and look for the other super bands including STATE. Here's the link to the CD I made: http://rapidshare.com/files/167282941/ann.rar

Saint Vitus

http://rapidshare.com/files/165694615/3_Mystic_Lady.rar As I've said before punk takes on many different forms and I just love this doom stoner band. This is a live track from their "Live" LP, and must be from the sound board as it is A-one quality. The band mixed with the Californian Black Flag punks and had 3 or 4 records put out on SST. Does anyone have any links to Saint Vitus downloads, and /or Spirit Caravan? You Tube has some great footage of early gigs. here's one and then you can check out the others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQHCTT2t1lE&feature=related remember these guys had long hair years before all the punks went grunge and thash.

Counter Clockweyes


The comedy/documentary by Bill Maher is well worth hunting down. I wasn't sure if I wanted to see it as I thought it might be too preachy, but it was very funny and exposed the bigotry of religion. He basically just let people speak and make themselves look stupid. We had to go and see it in a small theatre as the regular cinemas just want mindless drivel. I hope it comes out on DVD.

Dreaded Solution

Well let's see how this goes. I still can't upload vinyl or tapes, but I'm going to give a CD a try. This is "Wasteland Occupation" by Dreaded Solution outta California in 2005.
Six tracks that I can only get up singularly.
