The heyday of the label sampler seems to be gone. I remember about ten years ago, it was the prime way to get some songs by a bunch of bands on the cheap, not to mention discover some new bands without having to commit to a full length (for the kids out there, this was before downloading on the net). Well it’s time to party like it’s 1997! There are some good bands on Haunted Town Records. Naked Raygun(!), Norman Bates & The Showerheads, Deadline, 7 Shot Screamers and more. Some punk rock, oi, rockabilly… Good times all around.
