THE GOP - England Sucks EP (2005)

Great snotty hardcore from Portland with vocals that sound like a cross between Nathan Strejcek (Teen Idles/Youth Brigade) and the late John Stabb (GI). I discovered this 7" from the killer ONE TRACK TO HELL blog and dug it so much I just had to have my own copy. I added a bonus track which I'm assuming is from the same session as the EP as it's the band's only other recording out there. It's off a record called "Choke On It - A 27 Band Portland Oregon Compilation". I was originally going to upload that record on here as well but my copy has a few skips on it so I figured I'd just add the GOP's song. Shame they never didn't put out anything else.

1. England Sucks
2. West Linn
3. Portland Politics
4. Who We Are
5. Ready To Die (Bonus Track)

VA - Punk In Italia Vol. 1 CD (2005)

Compilation of Italian punk & hardcore from the 80's. Sound quality varies as many of the songs were taken straight from the original vinyl. Came with a great big fanzine with a write up about all of the bands, in Italian of course.

Catchy and melodic OI! from Italy. This record compiles their entire  January 1984 recording session which includes their self titled 7" from that year, some compilation cuts and a few unreleased songs.
