HOUSE OF COMMONS - 'Psycho' Demo CS (1993)

   Big thanks again to Josh for hooking me up with this House Of Commons demo that I didn't even know existed! I'm not sure when it was released but I know the first two songs were recorded in 1993 by a new version of HOC reformed in tribute to their late frontman Andrew "Android" Challinor. Tracks 3-6 were taken from the band's 1983 MLP 'Patriot' and 7-9 were recorded in '84. Side B features some live songs by The Intoxicators, who's 'Last Call' demo tape was posted here back in 2012.

ANTI - I Don't Want To Die In Your War LP (1982)

Seriously underrated early 80's California HC. Ripped from the 2018 reissue. Hard to believe it took over 35 years for this record to be re-released.

REVULVA - S/T tape (1996)

Had this tape given to me a few months back, thanks again Josh! Revolva were a mid 90's East Van punk rock/riotgrrl band that I'm still trying to recall if I saw live or not. I do remember seeing their name on gig posters back in the day so there's probably a good chance I did. I think this was their only release.

HATED YOUTH - Hardcore Rules EP (2000)

You may know these guys from their contribution to the 1983 comp 'We Can't Help It If We're From Florida'. It wouldn't be another 17 years until more songs from that recording session would finally see the light of day. The masters are long lost so this was taken from an old beat up cassette. But hey, better than nothing because this shit still rips!

BASTARDOS SIN NOMBRE - Subterráneo Medellin LP (2013)

Another great discovery from the Medellin comp CS I posted last fall. I found this record for under $10 at a local shop last month. It's got the band's 1989 demo, their two 7"s from 1991-92 and some live stuff from 2012.

N.O.T.A. - None Of The Above LP (1985)

Certified banger from the dirty south, Tulsa Oklahoma to be exact. With almost everything being reissued nowadays, it boggles the mind that no label has yet to re-release this band's back catalog. What IS the deal? Ripped from the original cassette version. Check out their equally great 'Moscow' 7" from '84 if you haven't already.
