VARIOUS ARTISTS: America in Decline: CD

Sep 18, 2001

Vinyl gets the digital treatment, and ages gracefully. The comp itself is split in two. One half being Athena, where the bands are mixed between hardcore to pop punk, and the other part is called Jeff, where the bands are full-on white knuckled madness, hardcore to grind. All in all, a pretty good mix of styles. My favorites come from Gringo, Fuckface, KPF, Rash Of Beatings, Pretentious Assholes, Bad Genes, Brother Inferior, and Benumb, to name but a few.
