VARIOUS ARTISTS: Local Anesthetic: CD

Mar 27, 2008

Eleven long-gone singles here by ten long-gone Colorado bands that were originally released by a long-gone label. This ‘uns got a little something for everyone—hardcore (White Trash, Bum Kon), gloomy post-punk (Your Funeral), odd new wave (Young Weasels), no wave-type skronk (Jeri Rossi), KBD punk (Rok Tots, Defex), even oddball shit with a dead Beat poet providing vocals (Gluons with Allen Ginsberg). Of particular interest, though, is some punky stuff by a band called the Nails, who later found a spot in new wave heaven with a tune called “88 Lines about 44 Women.” Good, diverse comp.
