We The Living

If you were to set up a four track in someone's basement, give the drummer some cardboard boxes to beat on, and make the "singer" scream from inside a closet or bathroom you may end up with this 5 song 7" from Florida's We The Living. Information on this seems to be scarce and it doesn't help when the members' names are Kraut, Adam, and Megalosaurus. Since I've reached a dead end on this one I'll leave it up to the listeners. If you like your hardcore dirty and chaotic, this is right up your alley. Just do yourself a favor and skip the Madonna cover. From 1985 We The Living's "Carnival Of Vice" 7"-

I was rummaging around You Tube tonight and came across a tune that I can't get out of my head and figured I'd share it with y'all. Sadly, according to this exchange, this may be all that exists of this band's output. Enjoy this slice of brilliance, I sure did-

Pig Children

I have been feeling pretty lazy lately as far as the blog goes, so I'm going to have to dump something on you that's already on the computer that I don't have to take the time to rip. I'm going to make it even easier on myself by offering up something that I know nothing about. This 12" was released in 1985 on Savage Beat (HVY DRT's label??) and I'm not sure where this copy comes from, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that its probably from the Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes Volume 2 "Fanclub" CD???? I've never owned this one on vinyl, so its pretty new to me but perhaps not to some of you folks reading along. Its fast and tight with a slight bit of metal in the solos, a real ripper, and it holds up just fine 20+ years later-

Max Load

Other than the fact that this band was from Belleville, Illinois I don't know much about them. The only thing I could dig up was a comment by the guitar player offering a little background on the Garage Punk Forum (click the link and scroll down). I think both sides of this 7" were comped at some point but I don't remember where, I have to assume one of the many KBD LPs. No one seems to have a sleeve for this judging by the many want lists containing "Max Load w/ PS" on them, and I don't either. In fact mine is worse off being that it is a bit dish warped. Any ideas out there on how to fix this? An email from a fella named Damian brings you the nice big scan so you can thank him for it. That's all I got, from 1979 (Max Load's only single???)-

Not to be confused with 5051, this band, from what I understand, were from Reno, NV and released two 7"s during 1986-87. The first one has good songs but sounds like crap and is probably the shortest 7" ever with the b side clocking in at 48 seconds. The second single, however, is blazing yet catchy with great (Earth AD era) Misfits style horrorpunk choruses. I think it absolutely rocks. I first heard this band on a cassette dub, followed by a CDR, and now on this Reagan Era HC bootleg from 2000 (which includes both 7"s, a whopping six minutes of music) which is where the photo comes from because I've never seen the original releases and know nothing about them. Check, Check, Check it out......
