VARIOUS ARTISTS: Drop the Needle: Boston Punk Anthology: CD

May 21, 2014

The Stilphen brothers (Chuck and Glen) dig through the basement and come with some hidden gems here. Smegma and The Nunz dates back to the early ‘80s. Sadly, original vocalist Alec Steere passed away in 1999. There is also the original version of Gang Green’s “Let’s Drink Some Beer,” from 1985. Not radically different from the song I remember, but still cool to have in the collection. Scratch and Mallet Head are more in the metal arena, but they still bring it. I love the inside cover picture. Classic!
