Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 - The Late Late Show

We end our numerical tour this month with yet another 13. And as we're also celebrating Halloween I thought it fitting to include the dearly departed Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13. One of my favorites, actually. I honestly thought it was a fresh take on the whole Horror Punk thing. And although this 1996 debut isn't their best work, it is their first. And it also contains a brief cameo from everyone's favorite Carolinian Jeff Clayton.

Clit 45 - Straight Outta Long Beach

Clit 45 was one of the better mid-late 90's bands that really knew how to bring back the early 80's sound. That's quite evident on this 1999 EP. Loud, fast and damn sure in-yer-face.

Holley 750 - Death Machine

Straight-forward garagey speed punk today. Denver's own Holley 750 rip through this late aughts release. Sadly they seem to have gone the way of the dodo, but if you can find their stuff it still can get you movin'.

RC5 - In The Bottle 7"

I discovered the garage punk stylings of Seattle's RC5 during the Napster era. So many great bands discovered that way. This quick little 7" is their 1998 offering.

1000 Homo DJ's - Supernaut

Yet another Al/Ministry side project today, just as loud and abrasive as the rest. This 1994 EP combines both singles released by the "band". It's tough to get more balls out powerful than their version of 'Supernaut'. Just like most of Buck Satan's catalog, this deserves to be in your collection.

9353 - Overdoses At Your Mother's House

Another post from these DC weirdos. Actually, it's kinda the same LP I posted a while back, with extras. 9353's 1984 debut, To Whom It May Consume, was re-issued in 1994 with a bunch of extra previously unreleased tracks. I never really appreciated what these guys brought to the table way back when. But I really dig 'em now. Does anyone have their second album, We Are Absolutely Sure There Is No God?

Super$hit 666 - Grand Master

This buncha loud mofo's were never really a proper band. A few guys from several Euro acts got together to record this heavy EP in 1999. They never toured, nor did they ever release anything again. But they did leave behind these really cool 6 songs, including one of my absolute favorite song titles ever.

Poison 13 - First You Dream...

It's not surprising that plenty of punk bands with numbers in their name have chosen the number 13. And here's one of them right now. The cool garage punk of Austin's Poison 13. This is their all too short 1985 release.

Channel 3 - A Home For The Homeless

Ah, the great Channel 3. Always a favorite. Really glad they decided to start recording again. This 2015 comp collects several of their post-reunion singles. And in my opinion, their still one of the best.

Anarchy 6 - Live Like A Suicidal

Anarchy 6 was a goofball Redd Kross side project. Basically they set out to mock the ultra hardcore people. They did manage to put together some entertaining stuff, tho it is quite ridiculous. This cassette was released long after their quick demise.

76% Uncertain - Hunka Hunka Burnin' Log

By the time this release rolled around in 1989 the core was starting to get a bit soft. But still, there's plenty of good to be found here, on what I believe ended up being their last studio release.

Union 13 - East Los Presents...

Union 13 began their life in the early 90's and I believe they're still at it. Raging post 80's hardcore from East L.A.

RF7 - All You Can Eat, Vol.1 & Vol. 2

Another great Grand Theft Audio collection to fill up an otherwise boring Wednesday. This one (two actually) featuring another classic LA band. RF7 kicked off in 1979 and, unlike Sin 34 have left us with a large amount of recorded greatness. These two volumes scatter their history between '79 and '99.

Sin 34 - Die Laughing 7"

This debut 7" kicked off the all too limited recorded history of LA greats Sin 34. Great band, but like so many others, they came and went all too quickly.

Sham 69 - Angels With Dirty Faces: The Best Of Sham 69

No matter how you found this dark corner of the web, you're here. And since you've made it this far I gotta think there's not a chance in hell you can NOT like this album. Whether you like Sham as a whole or not, a collection of their best just can't be bad. Such a great punk band.

The 4-Skins - Yesterday's Heroes 7"

Four blokes from the East End got together in 1979 and managed to create some memorable punk classics. This 1981 three song 7" showcases their great early Oi! sound.

Cretin 66 - Burnin' Rubber Outta Hell's Garage

A far more modern garagey punk band today, from Kansas City. I stumbled onto these guys during those wonderful Napster days. Active right around the turn of the century, sadly I think they're all gone now. And unfortunately they didn't leave very much behind. That's too bad, because this 1999 debut full length leaves you wanting so much more.

MC5 - Kick Out The Jams

I gotta be honest, when I started this thing I thought it would be clever to have a unique theme each month. While I still think it is, damn it's hard to come up with something sometimes! So, we go a weird one this month. As you will see in October, your number is up.

We start with the number 5. As in the Motor City 5. One of the absolute greatest bands in the history of music, in my opinion. And somehow, this more-than-classic 1969 LP has yet to show its face on this blog. That ends today because right about now... right about now... it's time to... KICK OUT THE JAMS, MOTHERFUCKERS!!!
