Flex Your Head
D.C. Hardcore Sampler
It's not fair that I review this seeing as I used to live there and know most of the bands and people involved so I'm letting someone else handle this one. I got the opinions of three friends.
Russell Joyce on SOA:
[State of Allert] I like the intro, good drumming, excellent voice, typically american. They cover "Disease", a U.K. Subs song. They also do "Steppin' Stone" and blow away the Monkeys' and Pistols' versions. They are the American Cockney Rejects. Their singer, Henry is in Black Flag.
Russell Joyce on YOUTH BRIGADE:
These guys are anti moral-majority and have excellent lyrics. Excellent bass and guitar. I like the whole fucking thing.
Jamie LaFond on MINOR THREAT:
-good powerful stuff
Jamie LaFond on TEEN IDLES:
-production could be better
-cover of "No Fun" is better than the Stooges or the Sex Pistols
Eric Steedman on G.I. [Government Issue]
-shows L.A. influence
-could be clearer
-obviously good musicians
Eric Steedman on the UNTOUCHABLES:
-singer is only 14
-fast, excellent lead guitar.
