Urban Assault


San Francisco. 1982. Fowl Records, home of the great (& completely juvenile) FU82 7" and the mighty Verbal Abuse LP. Hard to come up with much more than that when the band info consists of first names (Dagar, Kevin, Victoria, and James). That's the punk thing to do I guess, no last names. Seems a lot of records are that way. However, this guy recorded the 7" so I'll send you to his site so you can marvel at all the great bands he got to work with, including engineering and co-producing one of my all time favorites- Condemned To Death's Diary Of A Love Monster. Here's Urban Assault's self-titled 7" from 1982. I think my favorite track is "Join The Army" since you just can't go wrong with a nice "go to hell" yelled at the end of a punk song-

Your site is great and I keep up on it all the time. You are one of the great MP3 blogs for punk music...You mentioned Verbal Abuse in this post and it made me think of their song from the Rat Music for Rat People Comp. (which was a great song if I remember correctly) and then I was reminded of another band from that comp. - Frontline they did the song "survive" - do you know anything else about this band? I have always like that song and never heard anything else about the band...or at least it went under my radar here in Cleveland....

thanks again!

Mr. Nez,
Frontline was a band from San Jose, CA. They put out an LP in around '86, I believe. They later changed their name to Lifeline and put out an EP and did a split record with No Alternative. They rocked it hard live, for sure, and played some big, big shows with the Ramones and Stiff Little Fingers along the way. Singer Joe Sib later moved to LA and sang for Wax and 22 Jacks ... he's now a DJ in la, la land. There you go!

KILLER 7", I was going to post this too, but it's not necessary anymore now. You spoke of C2D's LP - could you post this? I once thought it sucked and sold it but now that you say how great it is, it makes me wonder .....

I no longer own the C2D LP either (another one of those "where did that record go" moments). Grand Theft Audio reissued the LP + 7", but if you didn't like it then I doubt you will now. It was one of those records my friends told me sucked but I just didn't believe them. Too much rock influence for some I suppose.

That's exactly how I remember it - a lot of rock. I never got into the 7" that much neither, but then again, on one of them FLIPSIDE VIDEO FANZINES there was a C2D song that was fantastic! I think it was called Incubus or something.

Thanks for the linke Malfeitor! Well for Urban Assult they dosen't really do it for me. If they've stucked with the 4/4 beat as on Join The Army it would've turned out a bit better for my taste. Suprisingly clean and "proper" production for the era but it makes it a bit stiff.

In modern times, men started wearing belts in the 1920s, as trouser waists fell to a lower line. Before the 1920s, belts served mostly a decorative purpose, and were associated with the military. Today it is common for men to wear a belt with their trousers.

I remember C2D also. I first heard them on the P.E.A.C.E. comp with the track 'Gartland's Pit'. So, when I came across the 'Diary...' album in late 1985 I bought it and at the first listens, I too was disappointed, but only slightly. It was not as raw and fast as I would have thought. However, I kept that record, on Land Mine records. I still have it. It has become one of my go to records when I feel nostalgic for the incredibly great 1980's!!!
