V/A - The End Of Music (As We Know It)

One thing ROIR did quite well was capture what was going on underground. This 1988 compilation showcases the NOISE NOISE NOISE that was going on in New York and beyond. Really good in small doses. The always clever Mr. Biafra even makes an appearance.

GG Allin - Hated In The Nation

Yep, our old pal GG showed up on ROIR too. And actually this collection, originally released on cassette in 1987, is quite good if you're a GG fan. Lot's of early "hits" that helped solidify his legend, interspersed with live banter that gives a small taste of what a GG Allin show was like. And this here is technically the CD re-issue that has a few extra treats.

U.K. Subs - Left For Dead - Alive In Holland '86

Another great live release that somehow hasn't found its way here yet. The U.K. Subs belt out an amazing set in 1986.

The Dickies - We Aren't The World

Another worthy repost today. And I don't know about you, but after the Christian Death post we really needed something to perk us up around here. Well, here is the polar opposite. The prop comedy of the Dickies. So let's all stick a finger in our ear and sing along!

Christian Death - The Decomposition Of Violets - Live In Hollywood

It's a Sad Sunday today, courtesy of this Christian Death release. All tracks recorded live in 1984 and released the following year. Good, but depressing.

V/A - World Class Punk

Another ROIR compilation today. And this time we're going worldwide. Released in 1984, it features 27 bands from 25 countries. And certainly not just no names. There are some heavyweights included. BGK, CCM, Ratos De Perao, Dezerter, and on and on. A good comp. Gets a little squirrly on Side B, but still well worth it.
