V/A When Men Were Men And Sheep Were Scared LP
Requested by Bernard at Nuclear Farmed Fuck Frogs.
Released on Bemisbrain Records in 1985, this compilation contains mostly bands from Long Beach, CA. Nip Drivers were from Torrance and Target Of Demand from Bellflower.
Rhino 39 released one of the best late 70's punk 7"s. on Dangerhouse. Also did an album in 1984. Never heard this one but it seems to go more in the Minutemen direction.
The Vandals need no introduction.
Red Beret also appeared on the Mystic comp. "You Can't Argue With Suckcess" and did and album which is quite disappointing.
The Crewd also released a 1-sided album "Gather Around" on Bemisbrain in 1983.
Side 2 starts with the Falling Idols (see previous post).
Secret Hate did a 12" on New Alliance in 1983 but there's a discography CD on Grand Theft Audio as well. (Seems I'm wrong on the reissue!)
Nip Drivers did 2 albums in the 80's which were compiled on one CD released by Taang!.
Target Of Demand was a XXX band and did a 12" "Man's Ruin" in 1984. One of the best unknown HC bands with untypical lyrics for a posi-band.
