Dropkick Murphys + Ducky Boys - Split 7"

We end the month with a great Boston split 7". Two great bands both debuted on this 1996 release. Oh, and yes, it's a hint of things to come.

The Dickies - Roadkill 7"

The Dickies have been doing it since 1977, and still make it out and about even today. This is their 1990 7", and it's actually quite good. Not that we should be surprised.

Just Say Yes

NOFX - Surfer 7"

NOFX's 2011 7" blasts out 14 songs in 13 minutes. Complete with their typical "high brow" lyrics. And the good news is, if you don't like a song it's over before you can get too pissed. Well, if you don't count the two minute ten second opus that closes the record.

Happy Birthday, You're Not Special

Sex Aids - Back On The Piss Again! 7"

Sex Aids were a drunken side project of Chaotic Dischord members, which was really a side project as well. So I guess that makes this a side side project? At any rate, we get 3 drunken punk tunes on this 1983 7". Including a GREAT version of a Motorhead classic.

The Anemic Boyfriends - Guys Are Not Proud 7"

Something a little different today. We're going all the way back to 1980 Alaska for this single. Side 1 is a goofy little new wave number, while the flip is a bit more punky. Very minimalistic and pretty cool, too.

Happy Flowers - Call Me Pudge 7"

The Landlords were a cool hardcore band from Charlottesville, Va. In 1983 two Landlords adopted the names Mr. Anus and Mr. Horribly Charred Infant and started making noisy weird music under the moniker Happy Flowers. God Bless America! Anyway, here's their 1990 7" that includes an ode to hair metal, both studio and live, and an ode to German Folk.

Lethal Aggression - Subliminal Erosion 7"

New Jersey always had a rich history of hardcore. Well, in the mid 80's these guys thought it better to go the thrash route. Good punk metal on this 1990 release.

Zeke - Chiva Knieval 7"

Today we take a very quick ride with Zeke. This '96 single is over and done with before you even know what hit you.

Fang + Oppressed Logic - Skinheads Smoke Dope With A Cheap Beer Hangover Split 7"

It seems I've had a thing for cleverly titled releases for a bit now. And we'll start the weekend out with another one. Although it sounds more like the end of a weekend. HC legends Fang team up with another Northern California band and finished off the 90's together with this great 4 song split.

Jed Whitey ‎– This Machine Kills Hippies 7"

Might as well stay down south for a bit longer. This time we're not only down south we're down under. Not sure where or when I stumbled onto this 7", but with a title like this, it was hard to pass up. And thankfully the quick blast delivers some entertaining turn-of-the-century hardcore. They also throw in a fantastic cover of Jealous Again.

Yes? No!
It's fixed

HP.HC - Thrash/Hardcore/Punk 7"

Staying WAY down south, but a bit further north we find the insanity of Columbia's HP.HC. They certainly don't have the long history like Cólera, but they did call their shot quite clearly in the title of their one and only release. This damn thing rips!!

Wake Up!

Cólera ‎– Dé O Fora 7"

Heading down south for the remainder of the weekend. Way down south, in fact. To Sao Paulo, Brazil. Cólera started around the same time the 80's did, and they are still going strong today. This 1986 7" Calls out HC - Oi - Punk in the first track and deliver some or all of that throughout all 4 songs.

TZN Xenna ‎– Dzieci Z Brudnej Ulicy 7"

Off to Poland we go for this 1985 punk rock single. Quick, but to the point.

Enola Gay - Putting Denmark On The Map 7"

I first heard Denmark's Enola Gay on the classic Pushead comp Cleanse The Bacteria. Both those tracks are found on this 7", released in 1991, along with 7 more ear-splitters.

Destruktive Hjerner

Random Killing - Take Our Flag 7"

Might as well round out the weekend with another late 80's band. This one, though, is a bit earlier than the last couple. Random Killing is a Toronto band that started way back in the mid-80's and is apparently still randomly killing today.

Wishful Thinking - Rise To Surprise 7"

Staying in the late 80's U.S. but travelling all the way across to Western Massachusetts for this 9 song straight edge rager.

Meatwagon - Drink, Fight & Fuck 7"

I don't know alot about this late 80's San Diego outfit.Other thank they sound pretty pissed off, and of course they like GG. Another great blast of hardcore.

War Zone - Amerika The Pitiful 7"

It's fitting we follow up our Christmas month with the most wonderful time of the year. Yep, it's that time again. Time for me to whip out my 7 inches! It's 7" of Summer, baby!

And our first stop is San Francisco. Long time MRR stalwart Jeff Bale had this NorCal band together in the early 80's. Apparently it was supposed to be released around 1982 but didn't actually see the light of day until '91. It is an absolute ripper!

I Think Amerika's A Great Country, Blessed By God
