JERRY'S KIDS - Is This My World? LP 83

Funny how someone on the blogs just the other day said this band never had a studio release but only live tracks...well I just found this in the store the other day and its a great studio LP.  The song "Crucify Me" brings to mind the skinhead band "Iron Cross" and other songs the vocals more akin to Halo of Flies.




BLACK FLAG - I Can See You EP 89

White Sister - Don't Say That You're Mine - st LP 84

X - Adult Books 7 78 w White Girl EP 80

REPOST:  Thanks to Brian Guy for these two 7's in his original post.

Life But How To Live It LP

Great 90's band to start the new theme here of everything else except the previous themes of female solo artist, male solo artist, bands with "the" in the name and headliners and the support groups.


YES!!! Finally the end of the male solo theme and here we have D.O.A.'s old guitarist Randy Rampage and this just after I got to see D.O.A. last week on their on-going 'last tour'.  Also members of Avengers and Dil's.

MIKE WATT - Ball-Hog Or Tugboat 2LP 95

What a great tour this was launching the Foo Fighters and Mike Watt solo after I saw fIREHOSE on all their First Ave visits and after this also, it features a slew of all my favorite musicians at the time sitting in.  Been itchin' to hear this in my car so I had to digitize it!  As Mike's releases got better and better and are still available, I won't post the rest of my Mike Watt collection as the rest is on CD.  We don't really post stuff here that is on labels that are still around like Alternative Tentacles or Dischord, etc.
