V/A Do You Remember Rock'n'Roll? LP


Regional compilation released on IM Records, the label of The Faction and it's offshoots.
One of those offshoot bands appear here as The Living End. Melodic punk sometimes using a piano. Has Adam "Bomb" Segal in the band.
The Faction appear here with 2 live tracks.
No Warning sounds as a crossover band, typical for the time.
Front Line also did a mini-album on IM Records.
Stikky deliver 2 very early tracks. Not as special as their later output.
Nitemare is speed metal.
Orange Curtain sounds quite dark and Jet Crash Miracle is more of an alternative rock band.
Steve Caballero of The Faction delivers a solo track.
Nothing earth shattering on this comp. I must admit. More of a document of what was happening in San Jose and the South Bay in 1986.

1. The Living End - Ghost Riders
2. No Warning - The Curse
3. Orange Curtain - Sybil
4. Stikky - Cow Tipping
5. The Faction - Beyond The Mirror
6. The Faction - Spineless Majority
7. Front Line - Here To Stay
8. Jet Crash Miracle - Legal Age
9. Stikky - I'm In Charge Of A Parking Garage
10. Nitemare - Land Of The Dead
11. Steve Caballero - I'm A Stranger
12. The Living End - No Innocent
13. Orange Curtain - Past Due

Fantastic record from start to finish, especially No Warning (who make crossover sound good!) Thanks for that!

I think you may have the best record collection in western europe.

From my hometown. Most of those bands and players are friends. Have been looking for this for awhile! Very cool. A request if you have it, Do you have that Frontline ep or the split they did with No Alternative. For those that don't know, Joe Sib went onto form Wax and Side 1/Dummy Records too.
