V/A Big City's One Big Crowd LP
7th release on NY's Big City Records run by Javi of Savage Circle. This album contains 20 bands from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The 1st side are all bands from NY, side 2 has bands from NJ and CT.
The Unjust also did an album on Big City called 'Hammerhead' but never heard it. They also appear on the 'Big City - Don't Want No Pity' comp. 7" and 'Bollocks To The Gonads...' comp. LP on Pax from the UK.
Armed Citizens also had a 7" on Big City.
Ultra Violence did a demo of which the 2 tracks are taken. In the booklet it states that an album was recorded but this one was never issued.
Sheer Terror's first songs can be heard here.
Psychos' song is the only output I know of although they did a 6 track demo. This band had Billy Milano on bass.
Shok had ex-members of Fathead Suburbia, a band that appears on the 'Big City - Ain't Too Pretty' 7".
Krieg Kopf were a political band that issued a demotape that can be found on Good Bad Music.
Bloodlust is the follow-up of Butch Lust And The Hypocrites, a band that appears on the 'The Big Apple - Rotten To The Core' comp. album I posted awhile ago.
Javi And The Bastards were a one off. Label owner Javi did vocals while the instruments were played by The Unjust. song based on the one of the Dead Boys.
Pleased Youth did an album on Buy Our Records and also appear on the 'New Jerseys' Got It?' comp. album.
Same for Sacred Denial. Song taken from their 1st demo.
Bodies In Panic were another Buy Our Records band.
We see Stetz here again. See the 'New Jerseys' Got It?' comp. album.
Same for Bedlam and Adrenalin O.D. ( they do a song of The Damned) who need no introduction.
All the other bands are from Connecticut and were already introduced on my post of the 'Connecticut Fun' comp. LP.
Song of 76% Uncertain taken from the 'Estimated Monkey Time' LP.
