via Good bad Music for bad, bad Times!
now here's a meaty slab of KBDish LA punk.  again GBMFBBT! serves up the goods!!  the comments amassed on this post are required reading, chime in if you will...

tribute to the recently passed mikey offender (ex-offenders, DRI, MDC), may he RIP.  yet another slammin' offering from one of the best punk blogs currently active.  had me gone digging for my offenders LP, which is still hidden somewhere among my stacks.

via orexis of death
a really good mind-bender of an album if you're into shit like king crimson or jethro tull.

via Hangover Heart Attack
so what if the slits couldn't play their instruments (as the legend goes), didn't stop them from writing this absolutely amazing album of dub-influenced punk rock.  one of the most unique punk records of uk 70s.

can't resist the glammy goodness of slade.  nothing in the world like those anthemic choruses!!

a handful of post-punk and power pop
