referencing Rat Music For Rat People, LP, Comp, GO 003

There are just a precious few documents that capture the birth of the American Hardcore scene such as this comp has. Add to that the superior engineering, the DK's, Flipper and Bad Brains, et al. as close to being there as you can get. Don't worry kiddies, as soon as my Scoutmaster is delivered this bad boy wil be up for you @D*mono* - See ya

Sweet! All live comp with nothing but the big names for you like Dead Kennedys, TSOL, Black Flag, Avengers, Dils and more. For me the high points are the 2 D.O.A. tracks, full of snarl and snot and the Circle Jerks doing a high octane version of "Live Fast Die Young." Take note, too, of this early version of Black Flag's "Scream" with improvised lyrics. As my old neighbor Mr. Finklefarb sez, "So what's not to like?"
