^Nice one, I don't have that one. I love these Max Rock and Roll comps.

^I think you would dig it. You can probably pick up a nice copy of it for 15-20 dollars.

Recently...


Random Conflict - Tradition is the Enemy LP (No Profit Records) 2013



^Nice trade record I got from JB, a little gritty Southern style hardcore punk. Instead of me saying something about this record I'll let the good people at Maximum Rock and Roll do the talking for me.

Quote
Maximum Rock N Roll
“This is a punishing, awesome southern punk record. If this band keeps branching out and striving to step out from the pack, I will definitely be looking forward to their next 25 years.”



Popdefect - Live With This LP (Heart Murmur Records) 1988



^Hard to put this under just punk when some of the album is undoubtedly too light, so file this under punk rock \ 80's alt rock. I really love this album, it's way ahead of it's time for 88. As a big fan of some of their 7" records this was a nice find a while back and it's good enough to bust it out every couple of months.



Left Lane Cruiser - Dirty Spliff Blues LP (Alive Records) 2015



^Now this one is (no pun intended) DOPE! Yah mon

The best way I can describe this is they have a more modern, more blunted ZZ Top sound going for them, only it's even grittier and more punk sounding than ZZ by miles. They took the steel guitar and distorted the bloody hell out of it and it works better than you can possibly imagine. This is easily the coolest rock record I've bought all year long.

I can see pretty much everyone in here who isn't a lurker liking this, it's quite lovable.


Here, I'll just shut up and let the music do the walking...





^ Rock On

Christian Death - Only Theatre of Pain LP



I guess you could call this a goth rock record but I always associated this album with punk because of the roots of this band and the fact that this is way, way less polished than most of the bigger name 80s goth bands. Call it "goth punk" or "death rock" or whatever. I've loved this album since I was a teenager but it still gives me a weird vibe when I put it on. Rozz Williams' vocals are definitely an acquired taste, a couple of the songs come off more like a soundtrack to a ritual than rock songs per se. When it does rock, it rocks just as hard as the other bands Rikk Agnew played guitar in (i.e. Adolescents, D.I.) so I guess those are the tracks that will draw someone in at first. This is a remastered reissue from a few years ago that sounds great. My copy is on grey marble vinyl. The sound here is much fuller than my old 90s CD copy. My only real criticism is that I would've like to see this as a double LP with the Deathwish E.P. on the second record since I associate those tracks so closely with this album (they were/are bonus tracks on the CD version). Frontier was nice enough to provide me with a FLAC download of the CD version so I can listen to those tracks as well.
