Great Punk rock group however the lack of information on the album III and N.E.W. makes them hard to sell in a shop. I urge the labels to put more of their music online.

It's easy for me to say to the customer check out the album "...For The Whole World To See" online to create a sell. But their other stuff is hard to sell even if it's good.
