LIVING, THE: 1982: 12” EP

Seven songs lost to the sands of time—okay, the tapes were in somebody’s basement—finally gets put out there. Duff McKagan (The Fastbacks, The Fartz) on guitar, John Conte on vocals, Todd Fleischman on bass, and Greg Gilmore (Mother Love Bone) on drums. D.O.A. and The Dead Kennedys were most likely in heavy rotation, but it’s intriguing to think about what the impact would have been if it had come out way back when. Spastic and fun. If the label is listening, keep digging in Duff’s closet. Vains and Silly Killers reissues would also do nicely. –Sean Koepenick (Loosegroove, linktr.ee/loosegroove)
