Bad Sports-S/T 12"

well i'm back from being sick the whole past week. i finally feel like posting again. i've been sitting on these rips of this record for a while now, just never cut up the tracks. but now i took the time to do it so here i am. what we have here is some great powerpop, or something. it's hard to define this record, so call it whatever you want. this was released on the great Douchemaster records in 2009 on my birthday. i think they have released other stuff. everybody trades vocals, great stuff. i got nothing else to say, i've got homework to do, enjoy.
1. face like that 3.5/5 (decent song.)
2. sinking you 5/5 (best track. so catchy.)
3. on video 5/5 (like it.)
4. i need it 5/5 (great. really like this guys voice.)
5. she'll never get out 3/5 (decent.)
6. nothing but agitation 5/5 (love it!)
7. and it goes 3.5/5 (good.)
8. too many people 5/5 (nice.)
9. last cigarette 5/5 (like this too.)
10. progress man 5/5 (love this guys voice!)
11. won't let you win 5/5 (four killer tracks in a row.)
12. payback 4.5/5 (very good.)
13. why say don't 4/5 (little breakdown.)
14. should've known 3.5/5 (good.)
overall: 8/10 strongly recommended
buy it from the link above, and lots of other DM titles. they release top quality new powerpop.

Wasteland-Want Not 7"

time for me to post my own KBD classic. thanks to those who guessed. i really think this is absolute gold KBD punk. ever since i got the Back To Front Vol.3 comp from Mat, i've been playing "ono" nonstop. i tried looking for it forever but with no result. never on ebay or anything. finally, in December of last year, CollectorScum was having a set sale on the Terminal Boredom forum (which right now i am banned from). so i skimmed the list and found this. i was amazed. on closer inspection, i found out that it was a copy with original vinyl and no sleeve. but he said that he would supply a xerox of his original sleeve. so yeah, i got it for cheap and it's basically the exact same as the original. this originally being released in 1979 on Disaster records. super catchy punk. so i'll keep this short and let the music do the talking. get this now.
1. ono 5/5 (one of my favourite songs of all time.)
2. bombsite baby 5/5 (great vocals.)
3. our radio nation burns 4/5 (good.)
overall: 9.5/10 strongly recommended
CollectorScum might still have a copy, but i'm not sure. that's the only place i know where to go to buy one of these.

The Freeze-Police 7"

the Freeze have been a topic of discussion around these parts for a week or so now. that is the Freeze in the 90's. everybody knows the Freeze right? well they are one of my favourite bands and just posted a fantastic live LP not to long ago. a little (of my) history on this. i saw this at a record store and it was only $5. for whatever reason, i did not purchase it. so when i got home, just for fun, i went online to see what it sounded like. at the time, Dave G. posted it over at his blog. i downloaded it and was surprised how great it was. now of course i'm near no record stores. then i figured out that these two songs were on an LP called "misery loves company." so i searched for that LP online for a while. finally someone posted it and i downloaded it. yes some songs on it are great, but mostly i was disappointed. that ended my downloading of later Freeze stuff. recently though i listened to some newer Freeze stuff, in my opinion, it's not good. sad cause the first 7 years of the Freeze we great times. their records from then are so great. anyway you might be wondering how i finally got this. well sometime later i got to another record store and found it for cheap, this time buying it. i had to put down a Brutal Knights 7" in it's place though. well it was worth it anyway. this was released in 1991 on Taang records. that's all.
1. bloodlights 4/5 (a little weird sound mishaps on this but it's not bad.)
2. talking bombs 4/5 (my favourite of the two.)
overall: 8/10 recommended
not really essential but that's why it's cheap.

Foreign Fish

well i'm doing it, i'm starting a tape label. i'm gonna be releasing tapes only. why, you may ask? well because tapes are a bazillion times cheaper then vinyl, and i don't have much money. the label is called Foreign Fish. i am in talks with The Imposters and Negative Lifestyle about upcoming releases. no dates are set or anything, but it is a high possibility that it will happen. if any bands want in on this small label. get in touch here. oh and if you're wondering what the picture of the map is doing here, well the red parts indicate great masses of foreign fish.

Poppees-Jealousy/She's Got It 7"

here's one for all you fellow early Beatles lovers. this is basically The Beatles but with the Poppees own twist on things. released on the ever great BOMP! records in 1978. i'm not sure where these guys were from but i think it was New York. they weren't around for long but they released two 7"s. this is the second one. the first one has the amazing song "if she cries." i wish i had that 7", but in due time, i will get my hands on it. anyway, on this 7" there are two great songs. there is a demo version of "jealousy" which is just as great, but in a different way. don't you love the way the BOMP! labels on the records look. well i certainly do. nothing really else to say except that i wanted to post this cause it is so great. well that really didn't need to be said but whatever.
1. jealousy 5/5 (so great that even my dad loves it!)
2. she's got it 5/5 (great too. listen closely at the end, very end he yells, "whoo!" i love it.)
overall: 10/10 strongly recommended
you can still buy this from BOMP! for only $5. that's right, only $5! BOMP! also released a LP/CD of the Poppees called "pop goes the anthology" which has both singles, demo tracks (like the one mentioned above) and live tracks. it is well worth the money too. while you're at it, check out the Boyfriends, 20/20 and Jim Basnight releases that BOMP! did as well. they are pure greatness.

JFA-Blatant Localism 7"

(((re-post from Nov. 4/2009@9:24pm)))
(((this is one of my favourite records cause it was one of the first punk records i got on vinyl. now i find myself looking at it more than listening to it. not cause i don't like it anymore, but because i have tons of other records. although i always keep it at the front of my stash of records. i remember always playing tony hawks pro skater with my brother and we would try to guess what he was saying in the chorus. cause they cut it all out in the game, cause of censors. also they substituted the word "drugs" with "skate." which sounds pretty funny when you find out what the original sounds like. anyway the vinyl itself has seen it's play. the wear is really only noticeable on the last track though. it's a great looking record with just the right amount of wear. check out the scans. elliott called for a re-post, so here it is.)))

hey, i just bought this, 30 bones altogether. it was worth it. one of the greatest albums out there. they put out another two good albums, they got some cool surf songs. after that record they gave up. they went from skate-punk to slow-bad. but from 80-84 they were great.
1. out of school 5/5 (great opening song, fast great music.)
2. JFA 5/5 (best song on here.)
3. do the hannigan 5/5 (really short, fast and fantastic.)
4. count 5/5 (4 seconds long, yep.)
5. beach blanket bong-out 5/5 (tony hawk pro skater 4, yep.)
6. cokes and snickers 5/5 (good song, feels like a bonus track. i can't eat snickers. allergic.)
overall: 10/10 strongly recommended
(one goes up on ebay every other week, $20-35 depends on condition.)

Boogie Nazis-Pearl Harbor Sessions Tape

as promised, here is the tape tracks that were missing from the discography i posted a couple days ago. well more problems with my tape deck. now it clicks like a mad man when i play something. i think i might just suck it up and buy something new instead of looking around for old used stuff. but i did finally get a rip without the clicks but i listened to the cd versions and came to the conclusion. the cd versions are just more clearer so i went with those. thanks to Ryan again for uploading them. but i did scan everything. anyway here you have it. a tape entitled Pearl Harbor Sessions. i think it was released in 2010 but i'm not sure cause there is no date. apparently i got the last tape they had, thank god. greatly packaged. the tape is spray-painted with one side being black and the other being the "rising sun." you know, that Japanese thing or whatever. on the paper you get an official pilots license. mine is #51. i signed my name on it but at the time of scanning this, which was a long time ago, i hadn't signed it yet. so check out the scans below. now get the finest surf music ever to grace tape reels.
1. wild summer fun 5/5 (big party song.)
2. droppin' throu' 5/5 (holy god this is great.)
3. batfish 5/5 (guitar=great.)
4. if tuscon had a beach 5/5 (one of the greatest guitar riffs of all time. all of the ones in this song.)
5. gleaming the tube 5/5 (back to fast.)
6. john denverb, colorado 5/5 (keyboard is fantastic. again, riffs amazing. 0:53s makes me cry, with joy of such a great riff.)
overall: 10/10 strongly recommended
can't wait for more Boogie Nazis stuff. can you?

Buy Night Birds New 7"

well i was talking to Brian this morning and he asked me if could put up this message from him. seeing as i've put both their 7"s for download here, i figure it is the least i could do. here is the message:

"After a few delays we will have our new 7", "Midnight Movies" in our hands Feb. 9th so orders will ship late next week. First bunch of orders we'll toss in a button and sticker we made very few of for the new 7"... We also have some new shirts. Check it out here and buy some junk so we can afford to come play your lovely town:"

yes you might have already pre-ordered the 7" from No Way (i did as well) but if you buy it from them you get button and sticker. the real reason i bought from them was to buy one of their new shirts (they look great) and i thought i might as well buy a 7" too.

The Germs-EP 7"

(((re-post from Nov. 10/2009@7:16pm)))
(((well this one's for elliott. i'll tell my story in a bit. first i remember when i posted this. way back in 2009 when i started posting lots of stuff. lately i haven't been posting much, but that is gonna change. for some reason i'm loving posting stuff at the moment. i can't believe that KBD only posted 2 times in 2 months. anyway back to this site. so the way i acquired this was from a trade. i traded elliott some cds for this 7". pretty good trade if you ask me. all he wanted was for me to post it. so that's what i am doing here with this re-post. so once you are finished with the funk i just posted, get this. thanks elliott. now read what i said a couple years ago.)))

hey Dylan, here's your favourite album.
this has got to be one of the poorest productions ever. the sound quality is really bad, but great. a-side---good, b-side---bad. they are a good band and released some great stuff.
1. forming 5/5 (great song. great individual speaker thing. music left, vocals right.)
2. live 1/5 (this gets a 1 for that bottle smashing at the beginning.)
overall: 5/10 recommended (for germs fans.)
lots of obscure represses out their, so get that.

Ozone-Walk On 12"

hey, time for some top class funk. i would post the whole record, that is if someone were to request it. but no one probably will so i'll just post up the best track. that being the first and title track entitled Walk On. fantastic funk. i was flipping through the nearest record store and found this. their afros and track titles made it stand out. for example, "This Is Funking Insane." come on, from that it's got to be great. and it is too. it was released in 1980, so it will fit in with lots of stuff posted here. i got a promo copy. identical to the regular press except for the stamp in the bottom corner. well i think i've said enough about a record that probably no one will care about on here. but i love it, so it goes here. nonstop rotation in these parts. funk on!

The Freeze-Live At Cape Cod 1980 12"

i can't remember the last time i posted a live album, if i even posted one at all. anyway here is one. it's snowing like a mad man out there and i've been shoveling all day. what does that have to do with this post, nothing. why am i telling you this, no idea. so i'll just jump into the post. The Freeze were a great band and everyone must know them. they released some other great stuff up until 87'. this record was released just after their first 7" and it is referred to by Clif in this Cape Cod set. this was recorded in 1980 onto a tape. from that tape, Schizophrenic records out of Hamilton released it on LP. so the quality isn't the best and the sound fades in an out but only a couple of times. the quality i think is very good from being from an old tape. so much drive on these recordings. screeching vocals which i love. great set. this is my personal favourite Freeze stuff. get it now. nothing else to say.
1. before i hit that rubber room 5/5 (yes they wrote this a long time ago and then included it on their 86' LP.)
2. the water tastes funny 4/5 (nice.)
3. they won't unlock the door 5/5 (amazing, my favourite track. great riff.)
4. my megawalki land 5/5 (vocals!)
6. one sixth of a person 5/5 (lyrics.)
7. don't forget me tommy 5/5 (with this version, it doesn't sound like a new wave song. such a great version.)
8. the duh family 2 4/5 (good.)
9. refrigerator heaven 4/5 (yes i spelled refrigerator wrong but who cares.)
10. i'm too good for you 5/5 (on 86' LP under a different name.)
11. leap from the ledge 5/5 (great gallop.)
12. uncle fred 5/5 (nice.)
13. rebels with a cause 5/5 (great great great chorus.)
14. skeletons in your closet 5/5 (fast.)
15. halloween night 4/5 (a 7" song.)
16. one way conversations 5/5 (great chorus too.)
17. they'll be trouble if you hide 5/5 (awesome song, so in your face!)
18. i hate tourists 5/5 (i wouldn't know.)
19. the duh family 4/5 (it is listed on the back as "So Long Ago" but i believe it is "The Duh Family.")
overall: 9.5/10 strongly recommended
buy this from the link above, they might have some left. this is a must have. 200 copies on swirl green and black, which i have. some with signed insert, not what i have. a great post for the new month.
