Minutemen - What Makes A Man Start Fires?

We end the month with the Minutemen and their second "full length", though still fairly short. I liked, and even owned a couple of their early 7"s back in the day. But to be honest I never really appreciated them. How damn foolish! The Minutemen were a GREAT band.

Hüsker Dü - Everything Falls Apart

Let's end the month with a couple classic releases from a couple legendary bands. First, here's the 1983 release from the Minnesota legends. What else is there to say?

Stukas Over Bedrock - Back To The Stone Age

I have no idea what the Germans had against the Flintstones. I'm also not sure if this was the same battalion the Dickies spotted over Disneyland. Apparently the nazis hated our cartoon characters. At any rate, I've always had a soft spot for funny punk. And these guys fit the bill. This is a 2007 collection including their 1984 7" and lots of other goodies.

Doggy Style - Side By Side

How are you going to do it?
I used to love this LP back in the day. That is, except for the track 'Donut Shop Rock'. Damn I hated that tune! Still do. In fact, it almost prevented me from even posting this. But that would be silly. It's still a great skate album. And lots of fun. No need to let one bad apple (or in this case a bad donut) spoil the bunch. (boom boom tap boom boom)

Juvenile Truth - No Enemy

Ok, we comfortably settle back into 80's hardcore now. This Madison, WI outfit never had a proper vinyl release, but this is an entertaining demo... from 1984.

Sado-Nation - Future Past, Present, Tense

Well, here's another band that started life as a 70's punk band. But, where Rhino 39 dipped their toes in the 80's hardcore sound, Sado-Nation did a full on stage dive. Started in the late 70's, they definitely got early influence from X (the band, not the letter). By 1983 they were real comfortable with the hardcore style change. This is another great Grand Theft Audio release that has all their early stuff and even a few really cool turn of the century tracks. Great listening.

Rhino 39 - Self-Titled

So, the theme is 80's hardcore. And today we have what is often regarded as a 70's punk band. But, I think they can fit comfortably here. I always thought Rhino 39 was an interesting band. Never was sure what to make of them. At any rate, here's pretty much their entire recorded output in one nifty little 2007 release.
