Abused - Loud And Clear 7" Abused AM-1, 1983 PS (Loud And Clear / War Games / Just Another Fool / No End In Sight // Nuclear Threat / Watch Out / Blow Your Brains Out / Drug Free Youth) Great hardcore. Aggressive and powerful with distinctive songs. Near the top of its class.[GMcN] abused Active Ingredients - Laundramat Loverboy / Identity Loss 7" Active FRS-018, 1979 PS - Hyper Exaggeration / Bird On Fire 7" Active FRS-019, 1980 PS They are very similar in sound: fast-paced, keyboard-driven "new wave". They are both decent for what they are. The first has one fairly driving song. The second is quirkier/wavier.[BD] laundramat loverboy hyper exaggeration Agnostic Front - United Blood 7" Agnostic Front AF001, 1983 PS (No One Rules / Final War / Last Warning / Traitor / Friend Or Foe // United Blood / Fight / Discriminate Me / In Control / Crucial Changes) A tentative, badly-done skinhead hardcore EP from an important band.

Most copies of the original single have a John Berenzy Group sticker on the picture sleeve to hide the band's original name, presumably due to legal threats from the other 20/20. Earliest copies have an A-side matrix ending in just "A". It was issued again in 1979 (based on dates on test pressings) with matrix ending "A-3". The B-side, which is the only track of interest to punk collectors, remained unchanged. The reissue offers a remixed version of Vice Verses with a different B-side.[JF] john berenzy group Black Virgin - .44 Killer / Feel The Steel 7" Black Virgin, 1983 PS Blessed - Deep Frenzy / American Bandstand 7" Daven JC1022, 1979 PS blessed Boyfriends - I Don't Want Nobody (I Want You) / You're The One 7" Bomp 117, 1978 PS DE Line 1145, 1985 PS - Wrapped Up In A Dream / It's The Same Old Song 7" Signal BR01, 1981 PS First is a very good punky powerpop 2-sider, with some 1950s rock-n-roll influences on I Don't Want Nobody which work well. They'd gone limp by the second record, with the Four Tops cover on the flip being particularly unnecessary.[JF] boyfriends Brats - Keep On Doin' What You're Doing / If You Can Rock (You Can Roll) 7" Brats 45-100, 1976 NS - Keep Doin' (What You're Doin') / If You Can't Rock (You Can Roll) 7" Whiplash 45-100, 1976 HS - Be A Man / Qualude Queen 7" Whiplash 101, 1977 PS Original demo copies were sleeveless and a notoriously noisy pressing. For the stock pressings, which have Whiplash labels, you get subtly changed song titles, a much cleaner and louder press, and a picture sleeve, at least on some copies. The music is lumpen Bowery rock.[HW] keep on doin (1st press) keep on doin (2nd press sleeve) keep on doin (2nd press label) be a man Buddy Love - Sheila / Party Girl 7" Buddy Love BL-1, 1980 PS - LP sheila Cause For Alarm - Cause For Alarm 7" CFA 001, 1983 PS (Parasite / Second Chance / Time To Try / United Races // In Search Of / Poison In The Machine / True Colors / Stand As One) Sharp, clean, rhythmic hardcore with great songs.

The sleeveless copies of Son Of Sam with raised ridges around the edge of the labels and slightly different label design were almost certainly pressed in the UK. My Fly is similar but less manic. Third and fourth issued together with a sleeve. The music on these move to a sloppy, repetitive mode that is probably for fans only.[HW] son of sam - usa ps son of sam - uk label my fly Cheese - She Said / Kids Don't Mind 7" B-B-Baby S91152, 1979 PS cheese Chemicals Made from Dirt Long Island - Oriental Television / Bachelor Party // Beatniks Looking For Tourists / Uh Oh 7" Biro Mino 115, 1981 PS One great DIY/punk track in Beatniks.[CW] chemicals made from dirt Colors - Rave It Up 7" Infinite #27, 1980 PS (Jealousy / Growin' Up American // West End / Have You Seen Her / Rave It Up) - Colors LP Dirt DR-002, 1982 (Promise / Tomorrow / Where Does The Love Go / When Worlds Collide / Go Go Getter // All I Want / Summertime / Popstar / Symphony For A Summer's Day / Ethical Equations) Powerpop.

KSS-988, 1983 NS Two years after backing the Joy Ryder single (see below) it appears Avis Davis was living in Berlin where he released a couple of records. This, the first of them, is all over the place musically, but if there had been a Weekend / M.I.A single, it would be as good, if not better than the Ryder 45. Think Johnny Thunders-type punk'n'roll.[JF] Some time after writing the above I found out that Weekend was actually released as a single in Australia, but no M.I.A. as the flip.[JF] Dead Virgins New Hyde Park (Long Island) - Four 7" Rat Woman RAT001, 1983 PS (Rape Capitol Hill / No Cause For Concern // WW3 / Emotional Strain) dead virgins Delphobics - Darkest Hour / Distractions 7" Fake Doom, 1980 PS - Emotional Cripple / Me Them & It 7" Fake Doom FDR002, 1980 PS Emotional Cripple is decent speedwave.[HW] darkest hour emothional cripple Dictators - America The Beautiful / This Is America (by Emanuel Vardi) 7" KP PKP1001, 1976 NS - Heartache / Search And Destroy 7" SP Hispavox 45-1596, 1977 PS DE Asylum AS13090, 1977 PS - Search And Destroy / Sleepin' With The TV On 12" UK, 1977 - Search And Destroy / Sleepin' With The TV On 7" Asylum K13091, 1977 NS - Sleepin' With The TV On / Science Gone Too Far! 7" Asylum E-45470, 1977 NS - Hey Boys / Disease 7" Asylum E-45420, 1977 NS NZ WEA/Elektra E45420, 1977 NS - Hey Boys mono / Hey Boys stereo 7" Asylum E-45420, 1977 NS - La Ciencia Ha Ido Demasiado Lejos (Science Gone Too Far) / Endo Con La TV Encendida (Sleepin' With The TV On) 7" ARG Elektra/Music Hall MH-23.611/2, 1978 NS - Go Girl Crazy LP Epic KE-33348, 1975 UK Epic 80767 (The Next Big Thing / I Got You Babe / Back To Africa / Master Race Rock // Teengenerate / California Sun / Two Tub Man / Weekend / (I Live For) Cars And Girls) - Manifest Destiny LP Electra/Asylum 7E1109, 1977 UK Asylum 53061 (Exposed / Heartache / Sleepin' With The TV On / Disease // Hey Boys / Steppin' Out / Science Gone Too Far / Youg, Fast, Scientific / Search & Destroy) - Destino Manifesto LP ARG Elektra/Music Hall MH 50-14.371, 1978 - Blood Brothers LP Electra/Asylum EA-147, 1978 UK Asylum K-53083 heartache - spanish heartache - german science - argentina Dispositions - The Game / Broken Heart 7" Trebb TRB-002, 1983 PS Melodic punk.

I did appear as a dancer - being interviewed for a porn flick, in the movie Skin Flicks. Sorry guys, but I wasn't even nude, much less performing any sex acts.[Gina Harlow] gina harlow Heartattack - God Is Dead // You / Shotgun 7" Damaged Goods DGR001, 1981 PS - Keep Your Distance 12" Happy Clown HA-001, 1983 - Subliminal Seduction 12" Ratcage MOTR27, 1984 (Man's World (The Oldest Prejudice) / Wheels Over Indian Trails // Toxic Lullabye / Self Control) Great hardcore from Queens. Youthfully frenetic on the first 7"; grew more powerful and gained a choppy, rhythmic, experimental feel on the Keep Your Distance 12" - an unheralded classic, something like the aesthetic of the early Gang of Four grafted onto a suburban thrash band.

A parody of Steve Martin's King Tut occupies the B-side. The second 7" is wild and medium-fast, with Ism's emerging style of goofy keyboard solos over heavy guitars. Partridge Family cover on the A-side; homage to a New York hardcore Mecca (circa '82) on the B-side. Good.
