Rugburn / Jeberrekenelle

Okay, so this record is very special to me. It’s one of my favorites ever: among the first batch of hardcore records I ever got; I have little doubt that I’ve listened to it far more times t...

A Fool’s Paradise

I remain faithful: so here is a 7″ comp from my mostly-homeburg Santa Barbara. A Fool’s Paradise – A Santa Barbara Compilation, put out by Little Redhead Records in 1991. Featured on this co...

Pickle Patch Compilation

Another CD compilation from the Santa Barbara/Goleta area! The Pickle Patch was a venue, and some people’s living room, in Isla Vista, CA. It was run by who ever lived there at the time. The bands ...

Children of Barren Wasteland

Because the popular people demanded it, here’s the Children of Barren Wasteland 7″. As mentioned in this post, COBW features Whisper, the singer from Zero Hour. It’s from 1996. So that’s a year or ...

Tem Eyos Ki

Here’s the Tem Eyos Ki Tour CD from 2001. I didn’t see them on this tour, but I got the CD. Maybe this is widely available — I dunno. It seemed like a small gem at the time. And it didn’t see...

World Domination in Thirteen Easy Steps

A friend of mine from Goleta put out this comp. Dylan ran Stratagem Ripcords, and played in Stratego (featured on the comp). I was into ‘zines in a most monstrous way, and so that’s, first an...

Lemming / Apeface / Zero Hour

Going back once again to high school gym class – a fellow longhair gave me a cassette tape, stickered with “master cob” and with “heroin, lemming, apeface, moss icon, antischism” written on the lab...

Champions of the Bleeding Heart / Black Label

This split 7″ was lent to me by an old band mate. But then we broke up, and he moved away, and I didn’t get a chance to give it back (along with a few other 7″‘s). I feel bad about it. So, To...

Use This Coupon

Like the record in the previous post, this one landed in my loving arms after emerging from a basement about four years after being out of print. Along with The Beatles and some other bands, ...

Julia and Sunshine

This split 7″ with Julia and Sunshine arrived out of nowhere one day while I was doing handywork at Ebullition (well, somewhere mostly unknown to me… I think it came from someone’s basement)....
