GERMS: What We Do Is Secret: LP

I’m newly forty-five years old and I still kinda want a Germs burn. Such is the way of Darby Crash and company: their truth continues to be viral (like an infection). This clear blue Record Store Day release collects some extant recordings (though not the awesome title track), some archival stuff, and some live tracks, including patter from their very last gig at the Starwood (the record ends with Darby saying he’ll “see (us) all at Oki Dog,” though presumably not the big one in the sky). If you are burned or otherwise afflicted you’ve already tracked this one down. –Michael T. Fournier (Slash/Org, orgmusic.com)
