*P.S. Looking at that lengthy, and admittedly incomplete, list of regulars make me realize that this blog has it pretty good. That doesn't mean I won't say something if the comments grow really sparse but maybe I'll try to say it just a little better next time!I originally pulled this post when it received two comments for 43 downloads. I can't apologize, since it's an almost reasonable response to a totally unreasonable situation. After all, a good post is worth a good word in return, here or anywhere else. I certainly appreciate when people just stop long enough to say a quick 'thanks (or 'danka' or 'gracias') but it's those moments when people actually communicate their own ideas about the music that's been posted, those moments bring a huge fuckin' grin to my face.So, regular commenters - Nazz, Big Scott, Brushback, ViaCom..., Doug, Revolutionary Bum, Nick, Longy, Snatzo, CallPastorJerkface, LemonFlag, Woodworker, Sock Monkey, Barrie B, Biopunk, Johnny Hank, Rinjo Njori!, JBull49, Roy Pearl, Justin Crash, Chris Y., DaveGeek, Sociologian, Dave Sez, Roberto, KennyHell77* (and that's just a review of the last week or so - there's MANY more regulars who rock!) and anyone else who actually give a shit about human communication - this one's for you!
When Incongito Records began this limited-edition series back in 1993, they made an honest attempt to contact as many of these late seventies/early eighties bands as they could to secure rights. That attention to detail gave this series a reputation as one of the best in the torrent of punk retrospectives that the nineties unleashed. Compiler Peter Parzinger tilted this series towards wilder, cruder punk rock from all over the Western world with bands like K9's, The Chosen Few and Mittageisen. Thankfully, he also lets the series ratchet down the aggro for the fun "Eddie's New Shoes" by Blitz Boys, The Letters light but catchy-as-hell, "Don't Want You Back" as well as the Nasty Facts' power-pop number, "Drive My Car".
