Oh man, I found this Amenity seven inch last week at a local record shop. What a find! $2! And it’s really really good! Early DIY hardcore from 1989, from Chula Vista (south of San Diego, CA). Tough vocals, political/positive lyrics, fast skatepunk drumming, weird recording with the guitars coming and going all over the place. Similar to Downcast, but more skatepunk, and with some Econochrist mixed in.
Previously, I’d just heard one of their songs, on the Give Me Back compilation. This seven inch is killer!
