Clusterfux / Up Yours! - On Capitol Hill With Punks And Swill Split LP
Split album on Queen City Punx from 1997 with 2 Denver, Colorado bands, Up Yours! and Clusterfux.
Up Yours! were an uptempo neo-streetpunk band and probably the only band in this style I really like. No posturing like The Casualties and others. Up Yours! 1st output was a split 7" with political punk band Flux Of Disorder on Hazy Morning. After this split album the band did a 7" 'False Flags' and then changed their name to Scapegoat. They only appeared under this monniker on the Colorado comp. album 'A Force To Be Wreckin' With'.
Clusterfux mix punk and metal to create their own style of male/female vocals crusty hardcore. This split album was their 1st vinyl appearance. 2 years later followed the self-titled 12", also on Queen City Punx. The band existed for a very long time and only recently split. The later line-up didn't have the female vocalist anymore and I never heard that stuff. 'Thrash Mongrel' was their 3rd release, a CD-only album on Rodent Popsicle. A series of split 7"s follows in the next years with System Shit, The Last Priority and Apocalyptic Christ. Their last album is called 'Problem/Reaction/Solution' another CD-only release.
11 tracks for Up Yours! and 10 for Clusterfux. I'll post the 1st Clusterfux 12" in time as both releases are limited pressings and hard-to-find.
