VARIOUS ARTISTS: No T.O.: 12″

Somehow forgot to review this a few issues ago and then my turntable takes a dump after twenty-five years. All I got to do was stare at this record and wished I could play the damn thing. Rolled some quarters, went to the bank, and I scored a used turntable on Craigslist. First up! This comp! This is a remake of the famous Yes LA comp from 1979 but Toronto style. Songs are played track for track as the original. Replicating the original, the record is also one-sided with a silkscreen on the B-side. Tackling the songs: Stef And The Studs do the Bags and Alleycats, Career Suicide handle the Eyes, The Brown Knuckler takes care of the Black Randy track, the Dangerloves do a great X, and to close it off, Legion 666 put the heavy on the Germs. Limited to 300, so go jump on it! Now I have to go see if my brother has an original to hear what that actually sounds like.
