Minutemen - Live @ The Starwood, LA 11/8/80 [HIGH QUALITY VIDEO FOOTAGE!]


Yep, here's the legendary Minutemen live at the legendary Starwood! This HQ video footage of the full show was included on the DVD of the We Jam Econo documentary. This was just before their first record (Or second record, I dunno) was released. It's a great show that you need to watch if you love the Minutemen. Check out the documentary while your at it.

Law And Order - Anything But The Critic's Choice


Sorry that this post is so late, I've been out all day. Anyway, Law And Order were a HC band from the Baltimore-area. In fact, the vocalist of this band, Mike Finnegan, was the brother of Void drummer Sean Finnegan (R.I.P.).

This EP was released in 1981, on the band's own Fetal Records. It's a great Thrash record that demands repeated listens.

After Mike left the band, they broke up and hired Bill Stevenson (Not the same Bill of Descendents and Black Flag fame) and formed the rather bizarre, but still great, Bollocks (I have their first EP on my hard drive so, expect that soon).

War Zone - Amerika The Pitiful EP (1991)


War Zone. No, not the Lower East Side Skinheads from NYC, this this War Zone (Note the space) from San Francisco, fronted by former MRR editor Jeff Bale! Yes, we all know Jeff for his controversial reviews in MRR but, he was also in a band. Two, in fact. Lennonburger, featured on the MRR comp, "Not So Quiet On The Western Front," and these guys War Zone who, on the other hand, we're featured on the "Eastern Front" comp in 1982. Ironic, right?

This 1991-released, 1982-recorded EP was intended to be released on Alternative Tentacles. It never came out on there, I presume because of AT's distributors going bust, which stopped projects by the likes of 7 Seconds in their tracks.

This was finally released in 1991 by Allied Recordings, with only 1,000 copies printed. Well, here it is to download!

Circle One - Live '81


Speaking of dead cops, here comes Circle One, led by punk rock legend, John Macias! We all know about his horrific death but, that seems to have overshadowed the great music, sadly.

This 7" was released in 1995, I believe. It's a top-notch recording of a live show at Devonshire Downs.

I managed to locate this 7" on tradownload.co and I updated it a bit. I also uploaded it to YouTube about 2 months ago.

Anti-Cop Spotify Playlist


Do you hate the cops? Of course you do! So why not check out this playlist I made of songs to kill cops to. If you use Apple Music, I can link you to the Apple version of this playlist. If you would like this as a download and with EVEN MORE SONGS not available in Spotify and Apple Music, let me know and I'll sort you out.

Mecht Mensch - 1982 Demo Tape


Okay, so, I fucking love this band. However, I think this goes without saying since I named this fucking blog after the first song on this demo. Brilliant demo, too! In fact, the production on this demo is even better than on the 7"! 

These guys desperately need a discography CD/LP/Digital Release. I know that More Than A Witness were going to do a discography LP about 5 years ago, along with a United Mutation discography LP, but they suddenly went silent in 2012, which really sucks because, I would've snagged those records up ASAP...

However, you can find this demo on a bootleg LP, along with Die Kreuzen's and Zero Defex's demos. It's easy enough to find on Discogs. The Acceptance 7" can also be found on a boot LP with 7"s by the Clitboys, The Catatonics and the Active Ingredients, but that one's a bit harder to find. And of course, the download link for Acceptance is still up on Can't Stand The 80s.

Trying to get back into the game...

Hello.

I'm probably not going to do a lot of reviews since, barely anyone sees them and they take a lot of work and effort to churn out. I'm gonna try to upload a bunch of files on here though.
