Millions Of Dumb Covers

Another thing I really liked was a good Cover Tune. So, to round out the month of September I have a veritable plethora of covers of some of the biggest hits of the 50's, 60's, 70's & 80's. It's gonna be like a K-Tel record up in this bitch!! I've tried to avoid songs directly from Tribute albums, because that's just cheating. Some bands however, had a habit of making lots of cover songs on their releases. The Dickies and Killdozer immediately come to mind. You will find a little of that sprinkled about. So, once again, download at your own risk and comment if you feel the need.

Dr. Drunk Ruins It For Everyone

Ahh, the Mix Tape. Where would the world be without them? I used to love making them back in the day so, for experimentation purposes, we're going to try something a little different these next couple days. What follows today is two discs full of some of my all time favorite bands doing some of my all time favorite songs from some of my all time favorite records. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to download and listen. If this sort of thing doesn't work for you, just let me know. I'll try to curb it in the future. But I strongly advise you at least give it a listen... Doctors' orders!

Disc 1

By request, here's some more godawful Killdozer racket to piss off your neighbors.

76% Uncertain - Nothing But Love Songs

Here's the second release from the great Connecticut hardcore band 76% Uncertain. Another fantastic release.

Zany Guys - Party Hits Vol. 2 7"

Zany Guys were a fun little hardcore band from Phoenix. This was their only release, outside of some comp tracks. Fun stuff from 1983.

Yeastie Girlz - Ovary Action 7"

Hmm, what can I say about the Yeastie Girlz? The three girls got together at Gilman Street in the late 80's and began 'rapping'(?) with no musical accompaniment. It seems they thought it a good enough idea to actually record a 7". The jury is still out on that one. Silly and scatalogical, bordering on entertaining. Give it a listen, I dare ya!

Talkin' Shit

Xpozez - Systems Kill 7"

Don't know alot about this band. In fact I know virtually nothing. I know they pump out some good aggressive U.K. punk on this 7". This is their debut from 1981.

Wehrmacht - Biērmächt

Wehrmacht pump out humorous 'speed punk/crossover/punk metal/thrash/whatever the kids are calling it nowadays'. Originating in Portland in 1985, they released a couple demos and records in their short history. They've apparently reformed and are touring and recording. Fun, mostly beer-related lyrics. It's predictable, but entertaining. I'd say it's well worth the storage space.

Draft Beer, Not Me

Vatican Commandos - Hit Squad For God 7"

By now I'm sure everyone has heard about Moby being a member of this band, so I won't go into that. What I will say is V.C. is yet another GREAT early 80's Connecticut hardcore band. Their '83 debut proves that.

Polka-Dotted Baggies, It Lasts Forever

U.S. Chaos - Eye For An Eye 7"

New Jersey Oi-sters U.S. Chaos were a fantastic band that put out way too little. They only released this 7" and a 12" in 1984. Both were great. This is obviously the 7". An anthology CD was released several years back as well as a reunion CD which I haven't heard.

Kill The Killers

Tar Babies - Face The Music

In 1982 Wisconsin's Mecht Mensch became the Tar Babies. They took the aggressive hardcore sound of Mecht Mensch and added some jazzy, funky elements. They eventually leaned more and more towards the 'avant-garde' thing. Here on their 1982 debut though, the hardcore roots are still evident.

Scapegoats - Life Is Pasted On My Eyes

Scapegoats were a Santa Cruz band that had one of my favorite tracks on the Not So Quiet comp. But apparently they released nothing else. That is until the great Grand Theft Audio put out this CD in 2001 compiling all their studio work, plus live tracks that for some reason are not included on the version I found online. Good stuff, though not ground-breaking.

R.K.L. - Rock 'N' Roll Nightmare

The Rich Kids on L.S.D. started in 1982 and were a damn fine hardcore band. By the mid 80's they were still cranking out the HC, but introduced some metal elements as well. After 20+ years and many releases I still think this 1987 release is their crowning achievement.

The Queers - Kicked Out Of The Webelos 7"

The Queers originally formed in New Hampshire in 1982 and are still annoying people today. Here's their second 7", released in 1984. Silly, snot-nosed punk.

Poison 13 - Self-Titled

Here's another band I always ignored for no damn good reason. Just as well, I probably wouldn't have appreciated it back then. Poison 13 was formed by Tim Kerr of the Big Boys. Go here for any and all Tim Kerr info. Many of you might think this kind of stuff doesn't belong on a (primarily) hardcore blog but screw it, these guys are punk!

Out Of Order - Paradise Lost

There was one summer I played this bad boy into the ground. Heavy and powerful mid 80's hardcore from the Windy City. Highly recommended!

Negative FX - Self-Titled

Negative FX was yet another powerful early 80's Boston band. They came and went all too fast. This LP was recorded in '82 but not released until 1984, long after the bands demise. The music is very reminiscent of their friends DYS.

The Meatmen - Toilet Slave

Tesco and his mighty and powerful Men Of Meat released this disc in 1994. OK, it's not 80's hardcore. So sue me, it's Tesco! Mortals bow before the masters!

Lockjaw - Shock Value 7"

Seven Inches of obnoxious hardcore from "Portland's Most Hated Band". Pure vitriol.

Ever wonder how much noise 3 guys from Wisconsin can make? Download this 1985 bad boy and you'll find out.

Ill Repute - What Happens Next?

Here is a fine piece of hardcore history, and an album I played into the ground. Ill Repute's 2nd release, from 1984. Without a doubt one of my all time favorites.

Heart Attack - God Is Dead 7"

Bruising early 80's punk/hardcore from New York. Released in 1981, this is a good record from a good band.

Gay Cowboys In Bondage - Owen Marshmallow Strikes Again 7"

Florida's Gay Cowboys In Bondage delivered this 'silly punk' 7" in 1984. Fun stuff.

Feederz - Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss?

This, in my opinion, is Frank Discussion's finest hour. Or at least 37 minutes or so . Crude, rude and railing against all forms of authority and all of society for that matter. Gotta love the sandpaper cover too. If you like that sort of thing you'll love this LP. If not, stay far far away!

Effigies - Body Bag 7"

The Effigies came from early 80's Chicago. Their sound Varies between hardcore, punk and the dreaded 'post-hardcore' sound. This is their classic second single.

Deathwish - Tailgate 7"

Please enjoy 3 blistering chunks of hardcore from Bostons Deathwish. Recorded in '83 but released in '89, this thing kicks ass!

Cause For Alarm - Self-Titled 7"

Relentless hardcore from New York. This 7" was released in 1983.
Poison In The Machine

Bazooka Joe - Pastor Of Muppets 7"

Here's some aggressive late 80's hardcore from South Carolina. They released 2 7"s in their short life, this one in '88 an the 2nd a year later. That one's good but I think this 7" is far better.
I Just Want To Say Fuck You

Anti - Defy The System

Here's some great California hardcore. This is the bands 2nd LP, released in 1983.
