KEITH SYKES - I'M NOT STRANGE, I'M JUST LIKE YOU LP 80
Ha ha, found this one without a jacket in another jacket (like we used to say back then PSYCHE!!!) which ain't too uncommon at Goodwill but turned out to be a nice surprise for me with strong songs and singing that will take a while to settle in my mind but I know it a bonified classic yall! https://krakenfiles.com/view/2vpwx0IGNV/file.html

The Weirdos - Destroy All Music 7 and Demos 77 w We Got The Neutron Bomb 7 78 w Who? What? When? Where? Why? MLP 79 w The Hideout 7 80 w Condor LP and Demos 90
REPOST: Dix Denney the guitarist just past away last week sadly and so am posting this again per the comment. Here is what I wrote before: One of the smart early punk bands from Los Angeles. 2003, the year I lived/worked in Los Angeles and got to see all my old favorite bands they played an incredible show with the Diffs and the Skulls opening for them. My buddy from MN chose that weekend to visit me and we grabbed a gal each and put them on our shoulders and chicken fought each other in the pit while they played one of my favorite songs, Solitary Confinement which is included here. Bomp! label has a great colored vinyl release out of the early stuff to look for so snatch it up if you see it! https://krakenfiles.com/view/RJf05Ysfq7/file.html
Redd Kross - Neurotica LP 87
This is one of those top albums that I first bought on official release on cassette and loved it no other way such as on vinyl. Among a handle of my favorite cassette tape official releases like: Bad Brains Roir Tape, Husker Du - Flip Your Wig, N.O.T.A. - st, Motorhead - On Parole, Black Flag - First Four Years and more all of which I have ripped and posted over the years when the cassette wasn't thrashed like this one was. Well I was going to buy the anniversary new pressing/remaster but visited an old friend after a few years off to cool down from Covid talk (now banned in the store) but any way an old sponsor Rocketstar had this original pressing with slightly torn cover of which I do not care as the rip was prestine. Enjoy! https://gofile.io/d/MgmWRP
JASON AND THE SCORCHERS - Fervor (Praxis Original and Reissue) EP 83 84 w Lost & Found LP 85 w Thunder & Fire LP 89 w Reckless Country Soul CD 96
X-RAY SPEX - GERM FREE ADOLESCENTS LP 78
Damn this sounds good but as you can see the cover is all molded as I found at Goodwill a long time ago and have been cautiously saving it for the right time and this week after SPOT'S death (Grant Hart died the day after St. Patrick's Day I was kindly reminded by an old scene friend Dale T.) I needed to hear some of my core punk stuff above. https://krakenfiles.com/view/jrGr8YCojY/file.html
THE CRUSTIES - CRUSTUNES LP 85 16
I was thrilled to death to find this on vinyl as I had posted this in original form of a cassette over ten years ago with the 7 inch (finally got a good rip of that too---it is the secret youtube link on upper right sidebar of this blog). That tape I had posted had a constant whine from a cheap tape used and I think most of them back then had that. This is on the Beer City label who have excellent vinyl offerings that they have archived and released so if you want to find the best record store in your area just look for the Beer City store like I did down the block at Jerkdog who have all my old punk vinyl now in their shelves albeit they don't buy my goodwill scrap anymore so I just give that right back to them if not a keeper.
THE SONICS - Original Northwest Punk LP 77 w Sinderella LP 80
REPOST and ADD ON: Found this cool vinyl from 1977 showcasing some of my favorite tunes from my Sonics CD that I have somewhere. Punk creators.
KLAUS NOMI - st LP 82 w Simple Man LP 82
REPOST Request: For Josh D. glad someone is appreciating this fabulous artist.
EDDIE HOLMAN - HEY THERE LONELY GIRL CD
Found this at Goodwill (showing off the autograph) for mister high pitch from the early days so was curious to hear more than just that title track. Enjoy!
VIRGIL FOX - Greatest Hits LP 71 w Plays The John Wanamaker Organ Phil. LP 71w HEAVY ORGAN Live At Winterland San Francisco LP 72 w HEAVY ORGAN AT CARNEGIE HALL LP 73 w ORGAN LP w Here Comes The Bride (MCA) w the Editors of the BRIDE'S magazine 2LP 80 w EUGENE ORMANDY - Saint Saens Organ Symphony CD 74 85 w Professor Peter Schickele - P.D.Q. BACH (1807-1742) CD 95
REPOST and ADD ON: Taking a year off going to Goodwill on lunchbreak and it seems the sorters were waiting for me as I found two more Virgil Fox and one CD under his pseudonym Professor Peter Schickele which I may not have found unless it was grouped with his stuff one day in a bin. Our favorite classical music teacher/hippy brain mindblower guy who is perfect for our times of mad scientists and 'Fargo' movie car salesmen all trying to squeeze a buck after the overall squeeze (see below post).
AGENDA (Full Length Feature) (2010)
Recorded this the other day to MP4 and figured I needed to share this 'PUNK 101" reminder to us all, so if you a punk, study this and watch it over and over and even if you ain't watch it now as it may be too late is all I can say. Good Luck and God Be With Us All! Distribute everywhere especially schools.

CAHIR O'DOHERTY - 19 IRISH SONGS CD
H A P P Y S A I N T P A T R I C K' S D A Y!!!!! From a Patrick and Florida (see label) to You!
HELEN O'CONNELL - THIS IS 2LP 72
Bit of a stretch for St. Paddy's Day as the name made me think 'Irish' but alas per Discogs: American singer, actress, and dancer.
Born May 23, 1920, in Lima, Ohio, USA.
Died September 9, 1993 in San Diego, California, USA.
Helen was a popular vocalist of the 1940s Big Band era. She began her career touring with Jimmy Richards' nine-piece orchestra and joined Jimmy Dorsey's orchestra as lead female singer in 1939. With Dorsey she recorded hits such as "Green Eyes", "All of Me", "Tangerine" and was voted best female vocalist in 1940. During the 1950s, she was co-host of NBC television's "Today Show" and in the mid 1980s was married to band leader Frank De Vol. She remained active in the music business until her death from cancer in San Diego, California..
JACK GREEN - Humanesque LP 80 w Reverse Logic LP 81 w RCA SPECIAL RADIO SERIES VOLUME VIII LP 81 w MYSTIQUE LP 83 w LATEST GAME LP 86 w THE PARTY AT THE END OF THE WORLD CD 20
REPOST and ADD ON: Actually he is a Scottish musician but St. Patrick's Day is mainly about wearing 'Green" in USA so thought I would get the rest of his stuff after getting a request in the comments and sure glad I did. A rare artist who sounds as good in later years as in early years and also I have tried to collect all the RCA Special Radio Series releases in the past and this one is new addition. Get ready for an eargasm of sound! https://krakenfiles.com/view/VmoOcs6q2a/file.html
