Reviews & Opinions

JOHN SILVA, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #2, SEPTEMBER 1982: Another great compilation out of Los Angeles. Side one brings us the hard-edged side of some current So.Cal. bands with RED CROSS and the DESCENDENTS leading the way. Side two has a lot of different styles with new tracks by the MINUTEMEN, 100 FLOWERS, SACCHARINE TRUST, PLEBS, and an old URINALS gem dug out of the vaults, a track that makes Jumpin' Jeff shed a tear for the old band. This is one to pick up.
