Abrasive Wheels - The Punk Singles Collection

Here's another singles collection for you. This one takes us through the Wheels changing styles. From great and classic English punk/hardcore to slower and a bit boring rock. There's also a little rockabilly, maybe, thrown in.

The Varukers - Another Religion Another War

Speaking of D-Beat, The Varukers have been doing it off and on for 30 years. Here's a fantastic release from 1984.

Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing

D-Beat, baby! The mighty Discharge bring it like no one else on this '82 release. Amazing and incredibly powerful.

G.B.H. - City Baby's Revenge

What do you do after you release two of the greatest hardcore albums of all time? You release another masterpiece. In 1984 G.B.H. kept steamrolling to hardcore glory with this, yet another, classic.

Subhumans - Time Flies... ...But Aeroplanes Crash

Here's the 1983 E.P. from one of my all time favorite (would this one be favourite?) bands. Enjoy!

Chaotic Dischord - Fuck Off You Cunt!... What A Load Of Bollocks!!!

Ever hear a joke...of a joke? After the "joke band" Chaotic Dischord released a couple albums and 7"s, a couple ex-Vice Squadders including Beki Bondage threw together this obnoxious album and credited it to Chaotic Dischord. Horrible, horrible noise. I like it!

A Noise To Get Glued By

Vice Squad - Last Rockers 7"

Here's the first E.P. from the classic U.K. punk band Vice Squad. They had quite a long hiatus in the late 80's and 90's, but since around 1997 or so they've reformed and released several albums.

Chaos U.K. - Short Sharp Shock

Chaos U.K. is a GREAT FUCKING BAND! Here's the excellent follow up to their excellent debut. Excellent!

No One Seems To Really Care

Peter & The Test Tube Babies - 3 x 45

Here's an E.P., of E.P.'s. Excellent drunk punk from the Babies. Originally released in 1983, it contains most, but not all, of the Babies first 4 7"s.

Oi! That's My Fucking Bird!!

Legion Of Parasites - Another Disaster

Here's more snotty Anarcho from the U.K. Legion Of Parasites formed in 1981 and had several releases before disappearing. This CD was released in 2006 and includes a couple demos from '82 and their full length debut from '85. Angry hardcore.

Anti-Nowhere League - Streets Of London 7"

Formed in 1980 the Anti-Nowhere League have sporadically released material and toured ever since. Crude, rude & socially unacceptable. Here's the League's first 7". Bad ass.
So What So What You Boring Little Cunt

Slaughter & The Dogs - Cranked Up Really High 7"

Another classic from some U.K. punk pioneers. Originally they were only active from '76 to around '81. A few reunions and releases have popped up since. This single effin rocks!!

My God You're A Bitch

One Way System - Writing On The Wall

Here's another band I know nothing about. I like their debut E.P. though. Angry hardcore, just the way I like it. Good stuff.

You're Computerised, Then Victimised, You're Animalised, But Paralyzed

Mayhem - Pulling Puppets Strings 7"

Don't know anything about this band. They released 3 E.P.'s in the early 80's and that was that. You should probably file this under 'Generic Hardcore'. But it's well worth a listen.

Gentle Murder

Disorder - Complete Disorder 7"

Here's Disorder in all their hardcore/anarcho glory. They've sporadically released records over the last 30 years while the band stayed together in one form or another. But this is the only one I've heard. It's I believe their second 7", from 1981.

Wanna Riot Fucked Up Drunk

Angelic Upstarts - I'm An Upstart 7"

Here's more late 70's punk/oi for you. The Upstarts were pretty active throughout the 80's and into the 90's with plenty of releases. This 7" is from 1979.

Hey, Whatcha Gonna Do?

U.K. Subs - Tomorrow's Girls 7"

The U.K. Subs. Formed in '76, the punk rock elder statesmen have released countless albums. Although members have come and gone vocalist Charlie Harper has kept the band rocking for OVER THIRTY YEARS! Oddly enough, although I've always loved the band I never actually owned a Subs album. I did have the 'Left For Dead' ROIR cassette, but it was lost decades ago. I've got mix tapes dating back to the mid 80's with plenty tracks as well as lots of digital tracks from the legal Napster days, but no proper release. A while back I found this 7" from 1979 on a blog and downloaded it. So I now present it to you. Like most of their other early stuff, it's a classic.

Well I Feel A Lot Better Than I Did Before

Crass - Penis Envy

Anyone out there NOT know who Crass is/was? Really? C'mon...really?! This is my favorite Crass release, from 1981. I think I know the chick on the cover.

Dead Man's Shadow/Action Pact - Heathrow Touchdown Split 7"

Here's another English split. Both bands released a handful of records in the early 80's, but this is the only one I've heard from either band. Action Pact does appear on a couple Punk & Disorderlys, though.

The Blood/The Gonads - South London 5, Hull 4 (Full Time Result) Split

Two great English bands split the vinyl right down the middle. First you got the heavy drinking hardcore of The Blood, followed by the heavy drinking nonsense of The Gonads. If you haven't heard it - LISTEN! If you have heard it - LISTEN AGAIN!!

The Business - Harry May: The Singles Collection

Let's make it 3 'Best Of' collections in a row. Well, technically this isn't a 'Best Of' collection rather a 'Singles' collection, but regardless it's got lots of great tunes. I love this band. They've had several splits along the way but still tour today.

Cock Sparrer - Rumours Carry More Weight Than Fact

I never was a huge fan of Cock Sparrer, although I respect their place in punk history. I also think they released some classic tunes. Those and more are on this 'Best Of' collection released in 1996.

We Might Just Turn On You

The 4-Skins - The Wonderful World Of The 4-Skins

Here's more Oi legends. The 4-Skins released several classic records between 1979 and their original break up in 1984. This 'Best Of' collection was released in 1987 and has all their classics. It's a great collection.

Riot Squad - Riot In The City 7"

Riot Squad was a great English hardcore band. Here's my favorite of theirs, from 1982.

English Dogs - Mad Punx & English Dogs

Time for some English hardcore now. The English Dogs brought it fast and furious. As the years progressed they switched to a more crossover/metal sound. Here's their '83 release.

Blitz - All Out Attack 7"

Here's the '81 debut 7" from the great street punks The Blitz. A classic. Nuff said!

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Newtown Neurotics - Kick Out The Tories 7"

The Newtown Neurotics were (and still are for that matter) an ultra political punk band. They bring a poppy, melodic sound to the table. Alot of their stuff is a little too 'rock' for me, but it's hard to beat 'Kick Out The Tories'. Does anyone have the 'Live At The Bierkeller' tape?

Here's the great debut 7" from The Adicts. If you don't know about them check out their website. Then download this immediately.

V/A - Punk & Disorderly Compilations

Here's a classic compilation series. Released between 1981-1983 the 3 volumes contain many of the heavyweights of the day. GBH, Exploited, Vice Squad, U.K. Subs, and on and on. Almost all the bands are from the U.K. with a couple U.S. bands sprinkled in. A nice chunk of punk/oi! history.
