You gotta love a hardcore comp featuring five bands—in this case Death in Custody, The Bill Bondsmen, Goddamn, Pub Life, and I Accuse—that clocks in just shy of the first Circle Jerks album. Each band contributes two songs each, some of ’em unreleased, most of ’em speedy, and all of ’em pretty good. Judging from the packaging, this is a wholly DIY affair, which makes the whole venture that much sweeter since this ain’t some label’s sad attempt to peddle crap bands in your direction and no missile defense contractor’s gonna make a tidy profit off your spending money on it. Very much worth your time.
