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.
