Nomeansno Presents: One Down Two to Go

Here's a rarity (at least it's hard to find in Seattle, which is just South of B.C.). It features the musical adventures of Mr. Right & Mr. Wrong. It's not my favorite Nomeansno album, but I still like it a lot. If you are a fan, then you will too. One thing about this album is the mix of musical styles, which, although consistent with the band's overall work, is not usually found on a single album.

Track Listing:

Red on Red
Who Fucked Who
Pigs and Dogs
More Icbms
Blinding Light
I'm Doing Well
This Wound Will Never Heal
Real Love
Baldwang Must Die
Sitting on Top of the World
Canada Is Pissed

D&A Presents - H.C. Comp 1

The other day I burned a disk for work, and I liked it so much, I thought I would share. This download has 30 sweet tracks that I would highly recommend (assuming you like hard core, anyway). These songs are from a variety of sources, included those links at the bottom right. Thanks for the fun!

Chicks On Speed - The Re-Releases Of The Un-Releases

Chicks On Speed, from Munich, Germany, can be described as funny, silly and sometimes techno-punk. This album contains many of their better known songs. Enjoy!

NoMeansNo - Would We Be Alive?

My favorite Northwest (or is it Southwest?) band is probably NoMeansNo from Vancouver, B.C. If for some strange reason you don't know this band, then you should. Although not their greatest effort, this 4 song EP is a good start. Their music style could be described as bass-centered H.C., and it sure beats the crap out of boring music like Primus. They are also an awesome live act. I caught several shows that also featured D.O.A. and other acts like M.D.C. I was never disappointed.

Suicide - Ghost Riders

The first US "industrial" act, dating to the 1970s, was Suicide. Their drum machine was made from a bowling pin setter. People threw knives at them on stage.

Track Listing:
Rocket U. S. A.
Rock 'N' Roll (Is Killing My Life)
Ghost Rider
Dream Baby Dream
Sweet White Lady
96 Tears - (bonus track)

I've always been particularly fond of Sweet White Lady. "Don't do heroin."
