DS-13 - Thrash And Burn EP (2000)

I never bought this EP before recently because I thought all of the band's non-LP tracks was compiled on the 2003 CD 'No One Will Thank You When You Are Dead'. Guess not. This was originally released in 2000 as a 6", my copy is the 7" reissue that came out 2 years after. DS-13 originally split in 2002, but have gotten back together in recent years to play a bunch of shows. I wonder if a new record is in the works?

TOTAL FURY / THE JURY - Split EP (2007)

This split 7" was released for Total Fury's 2007 East Coast US tour with Reagan SS and (obviously) The Jury. I've never heard The Jury before, but their brand of pissed off HC with screamed vox is right up my alley. I'll have to check out their other records. Both bands end their side of the split with a cover of an old school band from the other's homeland. 

1. TOTAL FURY - You're Too Old
2. TOTAL FURY - Little Story
3. TOTAL FURY - New Song (Scream)
4. THE JURY - Dead Start
5. THE JURY - Bigot
6. THE JURY - Crash… (Gauze)

DIRECT CONTROL - Farewell LP (2009)

I don't normally do two posts in one day, but I figured this may be a more fitting tribute to Brandon Ferrell. When this 12" first came out, I think people may have thought this was the band's swan song. But it was actually in reference to the passing of Mikey Offender (MDC, DRI, Offenders) who briefly played bass for them on a European tour, and also wrote the title track.

MAJOR DAMAGE - Sheer Mayhem EP (2013)

I was saddened to read about yesterday's passing of Brandon Ferrell. He played in so many great bands over the years like Municipal Waste, Direct Control, Government Warning, Career Suicide, etc. This is the 2nd 7" of his solo project, Major Damage. If you like 80's NYHC, you'll dig this. But then again, everything he was involved in was great. Rest In Peace.
