One of old East Germany's finest and a timely inclusion-- what with my recent Lene Lovich post in the female artists theme who she covers on the killer EP (gotta find me some more of that early punkier/experimental stuff) and tye-in's to Herman Brood's Wild Romance (Cha Cha Cha LP) which I have been listening to regularly, her cover of the Tubes song recently posted in our concurrent theme of "the" bands that I will pick up later and the Spliff Band that we have posted here and 80sonspeed blog posted more of last month so check out that fine blog that lets me sell off records so I don't have to rip them--part of the WIKI write up...quite interesting is her story I must say. Gosh, with me getting a new job finally in my field from an old work friend who looked me up on FACEBOOK to start next month in paradise, it really is connecting around here for me!!! In a weird way, I guess I owe it all to Dr. Drunk getting me into all these themes and hey, as Herman would say, "Dope Sucks!"

Another mystery band The Blue-Green Gods. I have them on compilations and this little number but I have no idea where they are from.
The copyright on the songs say SOCAN so I'm figuring that they must be Canadian, other than that that's all I know.
Not the best cover art I have ever seen, but the music is pretty good even if it is kind of a little different.
Released in 1992 on Jettison of Durham, NC
Anyone Know anything about this band? Yes it's mystery band time again.
Punk rock with a tad of maybe rockabilly. The vocals remind me of Antiseen or Hellstomper in a strange way especially on the second song "Litebulb Blues."
I think they maybe from California, but who knows. I'm hoping someone out on the interweb will know something.
All I know is this was a split release in 1987 by Circus Lupus Productions of San Francisco, CA and Empty Records West Germany division.
Happy May Day with a split from two New Haven, CT bands Broken and Boiling Man.
Good punk/hardcore with some political leanings.
Most of the time I really don't enjoy it when bands put radio news stories into their albums, but here it kind of works. My only question is the song "Revenge," about the aftermath of the '95 Brooklyn Beer Olympics? I guess we will never know.
I love the cover art on the Boiling Man side of things. Reminds me of some jobs I've had in the past.
Released on Ripped My Flesh in or around 1998.

Since "March" is from a cassette it has a great bonus song but only pulled one Wonderland EP mix track and threw in an internet rip of "New Toy" to the trax for completeness. Reminds me a bit of our old favorite around here Hazel O'Connor from the same period.
NOTE: No longer using boost on rips since my S-120 needle cartridge adds a lot already and my old mix amp has been creeping the levels up since it's older I noticed.

The Los Angeles X not the Australian X, but you probably already had that figured out.
This little piece of history from 1980 was released on Slash Records.
I have to admit, I don't recall ever hearing the song on the flipside, "You're Phones off the Hook (But You're Not,"before but it is a good rockablilly number.
I first posted this a while ago over on my own blog, but decided to post it here to so enjoy.

The Bill of Rights out of Vancouver, BC (I could have sworn that they where from Victoria, BC) give us six great punk songs from 1985.
I don't really have a favourite song on this EP, because they all are pretty rocking. This long out of print ep, and a must have for those of you who enjoy punk rock from British Columbia.
Vocalist Rick Knott reminds me of someone else but I can not put my finger on who he reminds me of. If I remember I'll update the post and let you decide.
There is a small skip on C-9, I fixed it the best I could, but that's the way it goes.
Released on No Rights Records of Surrey, BC in 1985.

This seems to be a tribute to the Descendents all the way around, from the songs, name of the 45 and the record label.
I really enjoyed this, I have to admit that I like the Descendents, I probably don't listen to their music as much as I should. What you have is two songs "Suburban Home," and "Minute" which I'm not sure was actually a Descendents song, but was written by Bill Stevenson.
Cleveland, Ohio's Beatnik Termites released this and I'm glad they did this is a really good 45 and if you can find it pick it up.
It was released in 1996 on Coolidge Records of Wycoff, NJ
