SF Underground Part 1
Although most of the huge names in the early California punk scene came from the southern part of the state, San Francisco produced a lot of great bands as well. Subterranean records released two 7" compilations documenting the early scene and both of them are solid. Part one features No Alternative, Flipper, Tools, and VKTMS. Flipper probably need no introduction and have plenty of music in print. VKTMS put out a CD on Broken Rekids that compiles pretty much all of their recorded material while some of the No Alternative stuff is available on an LP through Bacchus Archives. Tools released a few 7"s but I don't think they have been reissued so you're out of luck there. I'll be posting part 2 later this week, for now here's 1979's SF Underground 1-
