SUBHUMANS: Death Was Too Kind: CD

Feb 26, 2009

The Canadian one predates the U.K. one. Here is a band I had no appreciation for when I picked up their No Wishes, No Prayers LP back in 1983. I bought it at a time when all I thought was faster is better. Twenty some odd years later, I came to see the light. This is a great band in their own right who wrote some great, catchy songs. This CD compiles their first 7” Death to the Sickoids, the Firing Squad 7”, the self-titled 12”, and two unreleased songs. I’m not one to pay ebay prices to get originals, so this is a heaven sent gift. A definite must have to fill in holes in the timeline of punk history.
