Reviews & Opinions

JEFF BALE, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #2, SEPTEMBER 1982: A good but somewhat disappointing sampler of New York punk bands. The main problem is that the compiler -Tim Sommer? -didn't always use enough discrimination in selecting bands or songs. Especially impressive are KRAUT's piston-driven punk, the BEASTIE BOYS' primitive thrash, and intense experimental punk by both the FALSE PROPHETS and the long-defunct MAD; one should also note ADRENALINE OD's ultrafast funnypunk and the female-led noise of EVEN WORSE. Most of the other groups should already be familiar (BAD BRAINS, UNDEAD, HEART ATTACK, NIHILISTICS), but there's no excuse for including macho MISFITS-clones like the FIENDS and leaving the great REAGAN YOUTH off this compilation. A lot of the material here is available elsewhere, but ROIR has provided a service by reissuing some hard-to-find and out-of-print items .

Additional Notes

This was also issued on CD in France by Danceteria with a totally different - shit! - sleeve.
