I don’t actually remember how I got to know about Slug, but I liked their, um, sluggish loud music. I think it had something to do with them using lots of bass guitars, and because “Swingers” was a 10”, and I really liked to collect 10” records….
I’m not entirely sure what to say about the music in this post. The first set of songs is by a band called Munk. I don’t have much information about them–just that they recorded (to my knowledge) two seven-inches, which I bought when I saw them live a looooong time ago. The releases were simply titled “1” and “2” and the online FLEX discography has a tiny review here and here.
Anyway, here is one that I picked up for J Church and Assfactor 4. It ended up introducing me to Rights Reserved, Tonka, and a few other cool rockers.
I can’t think of a better way to rock than to put on some Sleeping Body and listen to the slamming crunchy chaos that ensues.
Again, it has been a little while since I last uploaded some good hardcore to rock out to. So, to make up for lost time, here is one double LP and two regular LP compilations filled with some awesome songs. The Vinyl Retentive compilation is truly amazing.
Suckerpunch was one of my favorite bands who I never got to see live because I got into the scene just a little bit too late (or rather, I made friends with people with cars a little too late).
After quite some time, I’ve decided to get around to taking some stuff off my minidiscs again, converting them to mp3s, and uploading some more music. This time, I’ve decided to revisit some of the cool stuff that John Lyons used to release. (John’s much too busy doing much cooler things these days, so he doesn’t spend time putting out cool records with nice hand-silk-screened covers and so on. I guess we can’t have too much of a good thing, right?)
Anyway, here, I’ve uploaded the two Reality Control? compilations released on Reality Control? Recordings a long time ago.
