No Comment - Common Senseless - 7" EP + badge

No Comment - Common Senseless - Deepsix reissue black vinyl with insert and free 'Common Senseless' button badge.
No Comment, for those who may have missed the boat, No Comment is powerviolence before it had a name and, therefore, is not shitty like the glut of bands unsuccessfully attempting to achieve the sound. This shit is extremely fast hardcore, somewhat similar to Infest, but better. I said it. Gone are the somewhat awkward samples of political speeches from their demo tape and, in their place, is better production and a tighter sound. While not quite as perfect as their masterpiece, Downsided, this 7" trumps most everything else from the era - thanx to icoulddietommorrow.

No Comment - Downsided - 7" EP

DOWNSIDED 7" EP - black vinyl in poster sleeve.
Reissued at last on Deepsix eleven short bursts of anger in seven minutes equipped with some of the best drumming you will ever hear. If you are at all interested in Powerviolence, west coast hardcore of the early 90s, Slap-a-Ham records, or just punk in general, you need to hear Downsided. This 7" is the best Powerviolence release. Period. I dare you to try and find a better hardcore record from this era - thanx to icoulddietommorow.

Authorities - Soundtrack To Trouble - 7" EP

AUTHORITIES - Soundtrack For Trouble - 7" EP

One of the all time greats! I first heard this 7" back in the early 80's when a friend played it for me over the phone and I have loved it ever since. This re issue features the original four tracks and two "bonus tracks" that have been saved for the CD version. The original four songs are so killer, great punk/hardcore from Stockton California circa 1982. Just totally snotty and raw punk/hardcore "I hate cops" is one of the all time best punk party anthems. This band gets lumped in with "KBD" punk a lot since they were on some of those comps, but the songs are more like right on the edge between punk and hardcore and are catchy as fuck. You can't not sing along to this after your first listen, you will remember these songs forever and when they come on the stereo years from now, you will starting singing along "I...HATE...COPS...I...HATE...COPS" -- Felix Havoc.
