Never heard of this band before, but those tracks sound pretty good. I'll have to look into them more. Definitely up my alley.

That Petrol Emotion - Manic Pop Thrill



TPE's first LP from 1986. This band was made up of two ex-members of the Undertones but sounds nothing like them. Instead of light punky power pop this is sort of the crossroads of 80s indie rock and post-punk. Some good songs, lots of melody, though not as aggressive as their next album, Babble. If you've never heard TPE, I'd probably recommend starting with that one first, as it's a bit easier to find in used bins and has a more immediate sound.

Skin Yard - Hallowed Ground
Toxic Shock, 1988




Long before some marketing douchebag made up the term "grunge", there were already a bunch of great bands in the Pacific Northwest making killer albums. Skin Yard was one of them.

Even though they didn't sell millions of albums like some of their contemporaries did, Skin Yard did spawn the careers of drummer Matt Cameron (who had moved on to Soundgarden before this particular album was recorded) and founding guitarist Jack Endino, who would go on to produce albums by most of the bands associated with the scene including Soundgarden, Screaming Trees, Nirvana, Seven Year Bitch, TAD, Mudhoney, Babes In Toyland... You get the idea.

Check this one out for some of the best unsung music of the late 80s. These guys should be legends.
