Black Flag - The Complete 1982 Demos (Bootleg)
If you are a fan of the band, I am sure you have heard many of these songs before, but the versions on this recording differ in a couple ways. First and foremost (and not surprisingly), the quality is not as good as any of the official releases (as most bootlegs are), but it is still very listenable. Secondly, this lineup not only features Henry Rollins and Greg Ginn, it also includes Dez Cadena and Chuck Dukowski (no Kira Roessler). But my favorite member of this lineup is the only one who does not appear on any other release and that would be the legendary Chuck Biscuits (DOA, Danzig, etc...) on drums. This was recorded at the midway point of the band's existence as they were transitioning into a slower more metallic sound. If you're a fan and have not heard this, check it out.

Oblivians - Six of the Best 10" (1995 Sympathy FTRI)
Oblivians. Jack, Greg and Eric. Memphis Creep is the cream of this seven song crop of tunes, but all in all this is a great record...and a 10" vinyl pressing to boot. Classic mid-90's noisy garage rock.

Happy New Year and cheers!!!
As requested by my good friend Joe...some Psychos. Happy Birthday Man.
My second favorite Australian band, The Cosmic Psychos. Rock and fuckin' Roll. This was Robbie "Rocket" Watts (RIP) first release with the band as their guitarist and in my opinion their best release. They have a few more full lengths after this one which I love, but this one kicks some serious ass. Saw 'em live in 1996 in ABQ at the Golden West Saloon...they wanted to come over to the pad to party after the show and maybe catch some Zzz, but the wife (who was my young girlfriend at the time) was having none of it. Fun times nonetheless. Enjoy.
