Econochrist - Discography 2xCD



Discogs Page

One of the bigger names in late 80s-early 90s political DIY hardcore, this is pretty much everything they recorded in one package with a thick booklet of lyrics. Although these types of CD sets are very convenient in terms of not having to track down every single split 7'' and comp. track, they are also a bit taxing to listen to. I can't say I've ever listened to the whole thing in one sitting. Music like this was meant to be listened to in small doses, no more than 30 minutes or so at a time.

((giggle))

I can make it thru at least one hour. When I get to 3 hours of straight punk music I'm basically in my full zen mindset. For me listening to a lot of punk is my reboot button, my EOD lullaby. That said, I don't think I've never actually tried 4 hours before though I'm sure I'd have to switch to something chill at the four hour mark.

^Oh, I can handle 2-3 hours easy, just not all of the same band. When I was younger I pretty much only listened to punk/hardcore at one point and nothing else. Maybe a sprinkling of heavy metal or whatever. Eventually that got old and I had to change it up.

^I definitely hear you on that.


Recently...


Screeching Weasel - My Brain Hurts LP (Lookout Records) 1990



^Not a big fan of a lot of 90s pop punk but the drummer on this Dan Panic is absolutely on the money. Sometimes drummers have a way of making a sound you don't normally get down with pretty cool. There are a few pop punk bands I can get down with and this one is really not bad at all.

Nice thing about almost all decent punk albums is they put low budget high quality inserts in them. The printed inner sleeves for this album show the entire discography (at that time 1990) of all their 7" singles and all their full length 12" records.

Lookout Records Full Length 12" Records




Lookout Records 7" Records





Various - The Punx (Bootleg) Unknown Year (Originally released in 1985 as a cassette)



^Really cool Jap Punk Hardcore comp from direct from the mid 80s Japanese hardcore scene. For a bootleg made from the recording of a cassette this one sounds pretty good. I'm saying this because I would not expect it to sound good, not that it matters entirely. Sometimes punk sounds like ass cuz it's all home made to some extent and at times that adds to it's appeal. But this is really dope and real, so even though I have no clue what they are saying (not that that even matters ever, half the time I can't understand the dude yelling in English) I love it cuz all I care about is the angst and the caliber and realness of the actual music.


From the compilation: The Punx
Gas - World Peace








Various - U-Boats Attack America!!! (Flipside Records) 1986



^Really cool German Punk Hardcore comp direct from the mid 80s German hardcore scene. Just got this yesterday, this one isn't a boot, and I'd say it's now my favorite regional punk comp out of all the ones I have. So much quality throughout, lots of Black Sabbath styled drastic tempo changes in the middle of the songs, to the slightly more chilled out German garage rock scene on the flip side. This one really stayed fresh throughout both sides, kept me guessing what sound would be next.


From the compilation: U-Boats Attack America!!!
BLUT+EISEN - Darf Ich Es Wagen Das Zu Sagen







From the compilation: U-Boats Attack America!!!
Upright Citizens - Stand Up






Again, I don't know what they are yelling about, I don't speak German, I'm just a dumbass uni-lingual American, I'm not all jet-set, cultured, and worldly. That's one reason why I buy these comps, they bring the culture to me in the comfort of my own home. The only thing that would have made listening to this better last night would have been some real German bier.

^Interesting stuff. I've gotten into a lot of non-English speaking punk and hardcore over the last 5-6 years or so as well. I have no idea what they are saying either but it's interesting to hear different takes on punk. Sometimes those bands give the American and UK groups a run for the money, especially with more recent punk/hardcore...most of the stuff I've gravitated to has all been bands from Europe or Asia.

Re: Screeching Weasel, never got into them or most of the Lookout and Fat Wreck type bands. Part of the reason was that around the time that stuff was really, really popular, everyone I knew was into it and I was mostly looking for harder stuff at the time. Even great bands like OPIV I couldn't listen to at the time because it was so played out. Every time we'd get in a friend's car to go to a skate spot or whatever stuff like that would be playing on the tape deck. It was all over skate videos at the time as well, though things were starting to become more diversified in that department...
