Skate Death - You Break It-You Buy It LP

Already told you that I got some interesting records of a friend. Well here is the 2nd one (Porno Patrol was the 1st).
Skate Death was a HC/punk band from Alaska. There isn't much to be found on the punk scene in Alaska but one label called Bullhead Records managed to release 2 records in the mid-80's. The Skate Death album, released in 1985, is the 1st one. The 2nd one is the Psychedelic Skeletons/Clyng-Onz split LP which I have and plan to post later.
Skate Death play 20 tracks in about 30 minutes. Lyric sheet isn't included but I think most lyrics aren't that serious. This record isn't so easy to find these days but it's a great listen.

1. Food Is Good
2. Everything You Know
3. Research And Destroy
4. Psalm
5. Cecils Revenge
6. Disorder
7. My Parents Are Disappointed
8. Spare Change
9. Rosary
10. Distemper
11. Media Eye
12. There Was A Man

Rejectors/The Accused - Split LP

I've got some records of a friend of mine which I can rip and post here. And as a promise, I post this great split album first.
I'm a bit surprised that I haven't seen this one on any blog.
This album collects 2 of the best Seattle hardcore bands. The Rejectors also released the great 'Thoughts Of War' 7".
The Accused here is the same as the one who recorded the 'Martha Splatterhead' album, but this is the very early line-up and they sound very different. Even Blaine Cook (ex-Fartz) isn't on these recordings. I think the only original member is guitarplayer Tom.
I included the lyrics sheet for both bands in the file as well.
Released by the bands themselves in 1983.

1. Struggle
2. Anti-Patriot
3. Gang Bang
4. Through My Mind's Eye
5. No Justice
6. My World
7. Conservative Minority
8. The Masque Of A
9. Work Machine
10. Proud Few
11. False Prosperity
12. Change
13. The End

The Accused
1. Tomorrow Belongs To Me
2. Child These Days
3. Bring The Riots To The USA
4. No Reason
5. Political Nightmare
6. Gain Green
7. I'm A Mistake
8. Wake The Fuck Up!
9. But What About Later
10. Live Our Own Lives
11. Life's A Waste
12. Like You
13. Reagan's War Puppets
14. The Right

Note: Political Nightmare & Gain Green ripped as one track.Rejectors / The Accused

V/A Eat Your Head 2x12"

Here's another Australian compilation. 'Eat Your Head' was released in 1984 on No Master's Voice/Greville Records and collects underground bands from the Melbourne punk scene. This one is quite rare (I guess about 500 copies exist) but it was reissued on CD in 1997. This is the vinyl rip.
The 1st record begins with Civil Dissident. You could already hear them on a few comps. I already posted.
Next is Vicious Circle with 2 tracks from their 3-track demo. These are the very first recordings of the band who released quite some records in their existence.
Next is the anarchopunk of Murder Murder Suicide. They produced a demo, and a 12" which I posted here on my other blog.
Side 2 starts with another anarchoband called End Result. The band already split up before this release.
Scum plays the UK82 style.
Royal Flush also split up before the release. The band consisted of very young kids. They formed in 1980, played their 1st gig in 1982 when all members were still under-13 years old. Tracks recorded live.
Record 2 starts with one of the best known Melbourne punk bands I Spit On Your Gravy.
Next are Charred Remains. Reading the gig review, the band seemed to deliver a great live show. Already disbanded before this release as well.
Bodies are next. Not alot of info. Tracks recorded in 1984.
Permanent Damage also delivers their very first recordings. Guitarplayer Matt used to be in a band called Disorderly Conduct and 2 other members came from a turkish band.
Last band is Madflowers. They are a bit the weird band on here.

The record came in a fold-out sleeve with pix, flyers, lyrics and some info on the bands involved.

1. Civil Dissident - A Nazi Choice
2. Civil Dissident - Vacant Race
3. Vicious Circle - Blood Race
4. Vicious Circle - Police Brutality
5. Murder Murder Suicide - Life's A Breeze
6. Murder Murder Suicide - Rockstar
7. End Result - I Won't
8. End Result - No Brains On Tap
9. Scum - Give The Kid A Gun
10. Scum - The John Barleycorn
11. Royal Flush - Christian Bullshit
12. Royal Flush - Coppers 'Round The Corner
13. I Spit On Your Gravy - Violent Fluff
14. I Spit On Your Gravy - Done To Death
15. Charred Remains - Rid Melbourne
16. Charred Remains - Space Exploration
17. Bodies - Live In This World

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.

Falling Idols - s/t EP

A 1-sided album of Long Beach, CA band Falling Idols. The songs were recorded in 1982 but the record was released 2 years later in a limited edition of 500 copies.
On vocals we have Dave Quackenbush who later joined the Vandals. Bassplayer Randy Bradbury was/is in Tender Fury and Pennywise, and on drums was Gregg "Mudd" Lowther of Pivot Foots. Gregg runs Long Beach Records these days.
Falling Idols also have 2 tracks on the Bemisbrain comp. "When Men Were Men And Sheep Were Scared". This one follows very soon.
Back of the sleeve handpainted by bandmembers and friends so every copy is a different one.

V/A Life Is A Joke LP

First of a series of 3 international compilation albums released on German label Weird System.
9 bands from as many countries delivering 2 tracks each. Released in 1984. This is the best in the series with alot of diversity delivered.
From the U.S. comes Fang. If you like their early albums you'll dig the tracks here as well.
Savage Circle isn't the NY band but from Italy.
From Brazil we have Inocentes.
Hysteria comes from the UK and mixes punk with a slight goth touch. They did a 12" later that can be found here.
Civil Dissident from Australia is one of the best hardcore punk bands from the 80's ever. Did release a 7" back in the day but Prank released a full length of them as well a few years ago. It's not so hard to get.
From South Africa comes Riot Squad S.A. 1st song is from their 7". 2nd one recorded as Reaction Unit.
The German band here is Razzia.
From Finland we have Terveet Kädet. No introduction necessary.
From Spain we have Shit S.A. The 2 tracks here are the only ones I ever heard. Don't know if they recorded a demo or so.
