DEAD KENNEDYS "frankenchrist" (Manifesto) - 17€
Dead Kennedys were one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late '70s/early '80s. They formed in San Francisco in 1978 when East Bay Ray placed an ad in a music paper that vocalist Jello Biafra responded to. They were soon joined by bassist Klaus Flouride, drummer Ted and a second guitarist known to posterity simply as 6025. The latter departed in March of 1979, while Ted was replaced at the very end of 1980 by D.H. Peligro.
It wasn't too long before the band gained a considerable following around San Francisco. Live, DKs were a combination of chaos and theatrics. Their sound could be described as a cross between the Sex Pistols and the Ventures. Underpinned by an acute sense of humor, their songs satirized the twin elements of extreme violence and conservatism that characterize much of American life.
After two years of touring in support of their 1982 classic Plastic Surgery Disasters, where they performed all over North America, Europe and Australia, the more melodic Frankenchrist appeared in 1985, marked by a frantic sense of desperation that reflected America's increasingly right-wing political landscape and with songs like "MTV Get Off the Air." As ever, the group ran into controversy, this time with the LP's accompanying poster, "Penis Landscape," by Swiss artist H. R. Giger.

HOLLYWOOD BRATS "sick on you" (Radiation) - 20€
RECORD STORE DAY EDITION. Praised by Keith Moon as "the greatest band" he'd ever seen and ignored or hated by just about everybody else in London at the time, The Hollywood Brats left a mark on 70s rock music and the development of punk that was rivaled only by their US counterparts, The New York Dolls. The Brats trafficked in a particular brand of post-Stones snotty rock and glam that presaged the punk era by a half decade. They recorded a fantastic LP in the early 70s but were unable to find a label and eventually disbanded in 1975, just before their album was finally released in Norway. Now fetching several hundred dollars for an original copy this 2LP RSD 2018 release fills that void at a fraction of the price, and with 15 bonus tracks to boot! Classic lost proto-punk and glam LP that directly influenced the first wave of UK punk. An essential collection in a RSD 2018 limited edition of 500 copies!

Lockjaw was formed in Portland, Oregon around 1980 by Del Murry (guitar), Tony Arcudi (vocals), Eric Couch (bass), and Rob Parker (drums)... the band played clubs like The Met, 13th Precinct, and the Satyricon in the early days. By 1984 drummer Rob Parker was replaced with Jeremy J., and guitarist Garrett Garitano was added to the lineup. By that time Lockjaw was labeled "Portland's most hated band." Lockjaw was ripped by the media, protested, and a couple of local record stores destroyed all the band's records. This Lp collected their two great quality early demos.
NO TREND "too many humans" (Euro Fan) - 14€
Noisy, misanthropic, uncomfortable and nihilistic, No Trend's 1984 debut album remains a dark gem of anti/social American Noise Punk Rock. In the vein of luminaries such as Flipper or "My War" era Black Flag, No trend crowned their selves kings of anti/hardcore with a confrontational attitude against punk clichés and convention that gained them as many fans as enemies (or maybe more of the latest). This Lp is a violent trip into the American nightmare, a painfully underrated masterpiece filled with anger, chaos and vile from a band that always went against the norm. Essential.
