" The definitive Flavoid(Florida) comp to date (I know that's not saying much). Five band here from various parts of the state (Roach Motel, Hted Youth, Morbid Opera, Sector 4, and Rat Cafeteria) along with 13 songs which spells a bargain to me. Four loud n' fast rip em' up HC bands plus one (Morbid Opera) with their own weirder than usual spew. My faves other than the aforementioned M.O. are Sector 4 and Roach Motel who earn my vote for song title of the year with "My Dog's Into Anarchy". Political conciousness to the max ! If you couldn't guess already... highly recommended. "

Hated Youth singer Gary Strickland is listed as Gary Strick on the lyric sheet, because, as he told me, when Eric Rogers was doing the layout, he either didn't know Gary's full name or was not sure how to spell it. And so it was shortened to "Strick."

This is THE essential Florida hardcore record on THE essential Florida hardcore label. The Sunshine State's calling card. Florida's answer to Flex Your Head and This Is Boston Not L.A. The Big Boom of Florida Hardcore. The record that launched a thousand bands.
