BROKEN PATTERNS: Germs + Stereo Type: EP + EP

Two discs with four tracks each of punchy Southern California punk rock that would’ve had ‘em sharing bills with the Cheifs and Rodney B. frothing at the mouth were this 1981. Hell, the chorus “Glad to Meet You” sounds like they immersed themselves in Political Crap’s “Slow Death.” Swell tunes, screened covers, and colored vinyl make these worth the search.
