HIGH CIRCLE - 6 Track EP (1985)

Like Chain Reaction, I discovered this Italian band from the 'Love/Hate' compilation. I found a copy of the third pressing for a decent price even though it's long out of print. With all the reissues coming out in recent years I'm surprised no one's re-released it. They also put out two more albums with a different singer and a bit more of a post hardcore kinda sound.
1. Rabbia
2. High Circle
3. Aiuta La Tua Scena
4. Lucida Follia
5. Skate Ride
6. Troppe Scelte

SS DECONTROL - The Kids Will Have Their Say LP (1982)

I think it's safe to say this record needs no introduction. Yeah it's appeared on a thousand other blogs, but I thought I'd post it because who knows if and when this will ever be reissued. Ripped from the 2015 Mexican fanclub (bootleg) edition.

BLACK MARKET FRUITS - Demos (1995-96)

HUGE thanks to Chris Iller who ran Canadian punk/HC label Fans Of Bad Productions for sending me these long lost demos last week. It was through compilations he put out back in the 90's like "Fuck The Commonwealth" where I first heard this Victoria band. I've always wanted to hear more from them and for years I searched online to no avail. Although it's a shame the Fruits never had a proper release at least they left behind these recordings. It only took me two decades to finally hear them but hey, better late than never eh?

THE OATH / TOTAL FURY - Split EP (2002)

Out of all the split 7"s Total Fury have been on, this one here is by far the best. I say that because I think it's the closest they've come to matching the intensity of their classic "13 Songs" record. The Oath side is nothing to sneeze at either.

2. THE OATH - Say It Like A Sellout
3. THE OATH - Shores Of Beirut
4. THE OATH - All Signs Point To
5. THE OATH - Street Smart (Total Fury)

DISSENT - Attention... It's The End EP (2005)

Final release by this local NYHC-influenced band whose members have played in many other groups in Vancouver over the years. I know I saw these guys at least once back in the day but I'd never actually heard any of their recorded output until I recently bought this 7". They at least put out two other EP's and appeared on some comps during their 1995-2005 existence.
1. System Downfall/Not On My Watch
2. Memorial
3. Violent Protest
4. Blood Alley
5. Ain't No Way!
