Sturgeons


Back when I first started listening to punk music I would usually tape the local radio show, decide what I liked, and then try to pick it up at the record store. If they didn't haven't it (or I couldn't tape it off of a friend) I was out of luck, because if I'm remembering correctly Pushead's Putrid Evil flexi disc was the only record I ever mailordered. Without great compilations like the Smash The State series, the odds of me hearing a 7" like this (included on volume one) would be very slim. What you get is $500 worth of early Canadian punk for not much cash, and the comps are obviously a lot easier to track down than the originals. Sure this single from 1980 sounds a lot like the Clash (compare the opening of "Punk Rock Virgins" to "Clash City Rockers") but I certainly wouldn't call that a bad thing-
Punk Rock Virgins
Forward Disorder
Anyone out there have recommendations for similar compilations of rare 7"s worth picking up????

I would recommend the Jerks "Get Your Woofing Dog Off Me/Hold My Hand" 7'' - British band.

It is definitely easier to find out informative tidbits on the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra by inserting the keyword “Viagra” in the Google search tool bar. You can also log into theResources section of the website http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com, and obtain comprehensive Viagra information.
