THE BLASTING CONCEPT VOL 2; V/A comp (SST 1986)
LP (1986), Used
First of all it has the version of Saint Vitus’ “Look Behind You” with Scott reagers singing…very, very awesome. The DC3 Mountain cover version is decent enough, the Black Flag cut here is wierd ass experimentation from the ass end of the band’s run. Gone presents a rippin’ instrumental, and Wurm’s “Death Ride” is pretty damn cool. Saccharine Trust give us some free-from jazz punk. Meat Puppets doing blues? Hell yeah! Pretty cool…and the Minutemen’s version of this Van Halen tune rules…even better than the version on DOUBLE NICKELS. Husker DU rampage through a damn good song, the rest of the album consists of some standard indie rock/punk, and a bit more experimental meandering. Don’t pass it up, because the highs in here here are very high indeed.
