D.R.I. - Dirty Rotten Imbeciles Vats Demos (1984)


                             This is one of the best D.R.I. recordings of all time in my opinion !
                             Recorded in 83' at The Vats (old Hamm's Brewery in San Francisco),
                             and officially put out in 84', although i've never heard any more of
                             this Demo than the 2 songs on the The Dirty Rotten/Violent
                             Pacification extended CD.
                             One of the best bands I ever saw Live !!!!!
                             On their 83' Tour I saw em' at the Cathay De Grande with Ill Repute,
                             and a young Stalag 13 fresh on the scene.
                             By far the fastest bands I had seen to date, although i'd been going
                             to hardcore shows since 80'.
                             D.R.I. blew me away ! Played like 40 songs in 30 minutes or something,
                             barely even took breaks between songs.
                             Drummer was in nothing but a speedo, and dude was sweating bullets ! :)
                             Ill Repute was pretty lightning fast for the time also, but not as fast as
                             D.R.I.
                             Stalag 13 (who I believe opened the show) were excellent, but not nearly
                             as fast as the other bands :)
                             Anyway, D.R.I. holds a big place in my heart, always one of my favorites !
                             Sound on these recordings are really decent !
                             Going to see D.R.I. on November 11th in L.A., with Excel and some other
                             great bands !
                             Saw them with Excel at The Palace in Hollywood back in 89', think I
                             still feel the bruises from that night at times :)
                             Was drunk as fuck, going against the grain in a huge slam of over 100
                             people.
                             We used to call that suicide slamming back in the day :)
                             Was so drunk didn't feel it that night, but for the next 3 weeks was
                             dealing with bruises and pain all over my body.
                             Was fearless back then in the pit, but I paid for it ! :)
                             Ok, sorry for the long winded post, just wanted to share this gem I found
                             on You Tube with anyone and everyone that loves D.R.I. !

V.A. - Never Forget ! (North American Hardcore Compilation) 1989 (by Mike X./aka-oldschoolmike)

                     OK, total blast from the past !
                     Finally found the artwork for the compilation I made in 1989 !
                     Never found the cassette itself, but was able to piece together the
                     whole comp in it's original form, using the same versions of the songs
                     that were on the tape, but from MP3's.
                     I did the artwork, and put the whole thing together way back when.
                     I wanted to release it, the unfortunate part was that Dischord Records
                     would not let me use the Minor Threat song :(
                     Out of frustration, I just basically gave them away as a mixtape, or
                     as they referred to back in the 80's as car tapes (or tapes for long trips) :)
                     I had already ripped the tapes, so eliminating the Minor Threat song
                     would have been a hassle !
                     Anyway, if you love 80's Hardcore, you'll love this rager !!!!!

F.Z.Ö - Välkommen Till Circusen (Demo) (1990) Sweden


                           Totally obscure one to me !
                           My good bud Mistah (from the OC) sent me a request to look for
                           this old one.
                           Took me a few to find it, but as soon as I added umlauts, it appeared :)
                           Ripping good aggressive HC, with a little bit of melodic sing along !
                           Mistah always sends me obscure requests, that dude totally knows what's
                           up !
                           Always gotta give mad respect to the younger generation who know half as
                           much as I do, and send requests that no kids today have a clue about !
                           Mistah sent me a couple more that I still need to edit, which i'll put up
                           ASAP !
                           Much love and respect to my good friend !

                             tonight at 5 Star Bar in Los Angeles.
                             Benefit is for Jorge Castillo, one of the original members of Brujeria,
                             who is fighting cancer right now.
                             Please come out and support Jorge and the scene tonight, is an important
                             and much needed cause !!!!!
                             Too many great musicians are dying too young, please support the fight
                             against cancer !


                             Show is up for download now !
                             Had to upload the show in 2 parts, so everyone could grab it.

Screaming Mailboxes Of Destiny - Self Titled One-Sided 12'' (1985) Pennsylvania


                        Band my friend Shawn Kessler requested me to search for recently.
                        Rare LP from 1985 Pennsylvania band that I vaguely remember
                        hearing the name of in the past.
                        After searching for the last week, somehow found someone on my
                        music program that had ripped the LP.
                        Cool Punk/Hardcore sound, with a few real short songs in there :)
                        Glad I was able to track this down, getting harder to find some of
                        those rare old gems these days.
                        I definitely recommend this one, especially for those old schoolers
                        like me !

                        01 Somewhere Between 9 & 10
                        02 Cheese And Butter
                        03 Priorities

                        totally impressed the hell out of me ! These guys have powerviolence

Schizos - Crrrest The Album (Everything There Is !) (2017) Simi Valley-Ventura, California (Punk band from 1979)


                    Nardcore/Slimey Valley band The Schizos existed for a few months
                    in 1979 and split up before any recordings were issued. Let it be known
                    that all of these tapes have also been given to the band, who are planning
                    on having the legendary Geza X sprinkle his fairy dust on them for
                    eventual vinyl and cd release. What you have here are ALL of the raw
                    and unadorned tapes (the only thing that has been done is a few click
                    and pop removals and overall sound level boosting - other than that:
                    nothing whatsoever has been done to alter the sound of these 4 tapes).
                    So if you are interested you'll want this download as well as the proper
                    release, once that is issued. Now know this: The Schizos are punk in a
                    similar way that The Simpletones were punk. They are NOT punk as in
                    Black Flag or The Germs. So just be aware of that before you download
                    this. What is included here you ask? Well... you'll notice 4 links. Link #1
                    is the 1979 Studio Demo as well as all artwork and info. Link #2 is a
                    complete rehearsal (with bass guitar) from Ron's house in Simi Valley in
                    Jan. of 1979. Link #3 is a full show from the Rock Corporation in Van
                    Nuys from  2/7/79'. Finally Link #4 is the legendary complete show from the
                    Other Masque on 2/16/79 when they opened for The Cramps as a last second
                    fill in for the cancelled opening act. Again: ALL info and artwork is
                    included in the first link. This free download has been made available to
                    you courtesy of the free digital download label "You don't work, you
                    don't help clean, you don't contribute anything to the household
                    whatsoever. All you ever do is lay around your filthy room all day and
                    night and listen to those GODDAMN RECORDS". As far as I know
                    this is EVERYTHING that exists by the band. Enjoy it.

                    Big big thanks and respect to Shawn Kessler (Underground4themasses)
                    for changing The Other Masque set from mono to stereo. Sounds a world
                    better !!!!!
                    Thanks a million Shawn !!!!!
                    Was great fun doing this one ! Had some difficult technical issues, but all
                    turned out better than I could have imagined !

Absolute Respect: L.A.'s own Grampa, 1927-2017

The man was sweet. I know that's generic to say, expected even, but I'm saying it anyway: In my experience Bob's grampa was kind and sweet. It's a blessed rarity (the most refreshing) to interact with any human being where it's not just easy words that they choose to say, but a feeling they leave with you that equates to nothing less than real gentleness and positivity. Socal collectively mourns this sweet, kind, and inspirational man's passing. No tuff guy "power" rephrasing: Just rest in peace Grampa, we miss you.

I knew Grandpa as well, he was a great man, and fantastic human being !
Saw him at a few shows over the years, and always shook his hand and talked with him for a few minutes.
I went to what was supposed to be Grandpa Fest last year at Perez Tires, but it was
cancelled due to some technical difficulties.
The show actually still went on, but not as Grandpa Fest, and unfortunately Grandpa was not there.
Huge loss for the hardcore community of SoCal !
He will be missed by all that knew and loved him !
My condolences to Bob and his family !

Agathocles/Cruel Face - Ao Vivo No Zapata Split Cassette (2015) Belgium-Brazil


                             Hahahaha, I edited this a couple years ago, but I thought it was
                             only 7 songs at the time.
                             A bandcamp that seems to have expired, only put up an edited
                             version of the tape, so that's all I had to work with when I posted
                             it on here in 2015.
                             Well, my friend up in Canada (thegrindmaster) looked on Discogs
                             and discovered it was actually a 46 song tape :)
                             So I went back online, and fortunately another source on the web
                             had the full tape, but in 2 tracks, A Side & B Side.
                             Now i'm here to correct my mistake, I edited the whole tape in full
                             and boosted the sound a little bit.
                             Sorry for the mix-up, i'm sure alot of people downloaded the short
                             version.
                             Live in Brazil, recorded in 2013 during their Destruir Para Criar
                             Tour .
