Buzzcocks - Lest We Forget

Recorded throughout the U.S. in 1979-80, this release from U.K. punk legends the Buzzcocks was released in 1988. I must confess I've never been a huge fan of the Buzzcocks, but this is a good collection of live tracks.

V/A - The End Of Music (As We Know It)

One thing ROIR did quite well was capture what was going on underground. This 1988 compilation showcases the NOISE NOISE NOISE that was going on in New York and beyond. Really good in small doses. The always clever Mr. Biafra even makes an appearance.

GG Allin - Hated In The Nation

Yep, our old pal GG showed up on ROIR too. And actually this collection, originally released on cassette in 1987, is quite good if you're a GG fan.

And this here is technically the CD re-issue that has a few extra treats.

U.K. Subs - Left For Dead - Alive In Holland '86

Another great live release that somehow hasn't found its way here yet. The U.K. Subs belt out an amazing set in 1986.

The Dickies - We Aren't The World

Another worthy repost today. And I don't know about you, but after the Christian Death post we really needed something to perk us up around here. Well, here is the polar opposite. The prop comedy of the Dickies. So let's all stick a finger in our ear and sing along!

Christian Death - The Decomposition Of Violets - Live In Hollywood

It's a Sad Sunday today, courtesy of this Christian Death release. All tracks recorded live in 1984 and released the following year. Good, but depressing.
