PERDITION: Not Just Another Anthology: 2 x LP

The subtitle is “The History of Australian ‘80s Punk/Hardcore Vol. 2.” Perdition were a mid-‘80s Adelaide hardcore band. They started off with some dark and metallic overtones, and developed into bouncier four-chord hardcore on the How to Teach Your Budgie to Talk LP, which starts off this discography. I get the idea these guys were the local band that rocked harder than the cool touring bands. File this under “Cool piece of punk history with plenty of mohawk photos.” –Chris Terry (Power It Up)
