18 tracks (LP version) from one of Cleveland's best and earliest punk bands. Ranging from basement recordings to studio sessions to live radio broadcasts, all tracks here were recorded between 1978-1983. The Pagans were nothing but two chords with an attitude. Great stuff from a truly classic band.

United Mutation

Early 1980's D.C. The majority of the bands it produced were straight edge hardcore. There were other bands that were doing their own thing, like the almighty Void, maybe Double-O, No Trend, and the fore-mentioned Malefice. But then there was United Mutation. These guys brought a whole new sound to hardcore. Starting in in 1981, their history of members is very long and confusing. To attempt to read about it, go here. Their first E.P. (released in 1983) was a Dischord split. If you haven't heard it, get it here. Later that year they recorded another demo which got them a track on the Bouncing Babies comp. Although they are under a different name(The Last Minute), I believe Mike Brown is still on vocals at this point. (Fill me in if I'm wrong!) The next year they went back to Inner Ear Studios to record the Rainbow Person E.P. "Infinite Regression" is on both the comp. and the second E.P. Both are different, but both are still great. Although the comp. track lacks the vicious vocals, the guitar is clean, crisp, and clear. Perhaps their best work ever, "Sensation Fix" was released on the Alive & Kicking 7" in 1985. This is pure psychedelic rock punk that's even got a saxophone as if it weren't already trippy enough. Enjoy!

Volcano Suns

Just after Mission of Burma disbanded in 1983, drummer Peter Prescott formed the Volcano Suns. They released their debut, The Bright Orange Years, in 1985. Grab it here. Two years later they released Bumper Crop. This was their third and final release on Homestead. Great album which also features Roger Miller on piano. They had a lot of different members come and go, but I think these two albums had their best line-ups. Great band great sound!

No Purchase Necessary

Another one of my favorite "christian" punk bands. They weren't around for very long either, existing from about 1998-2000 or 2001. Great band with a great sound. They played alongside other bands like Officer Negative, Headnoise, The Discarded, & Youth in Submission. They self released this 7-song CD-R in '98 or '99. It's hard to believe it's already been about ten years! There's not a single bad song here. Each one is as good as the last, having that nice old school punk sound. Now like all other "christian" punk bands, they talk about christian stuff. But with such a harsh sounding voice, you can barely make out what the hell they're saying! That's one of the reasons why I like this so much. It's not polished or pampered punk, it's old school. It's sloppy, fierce, & direct in all the right places. I know most of you didn't grab that Crashdog album, but please get this one! You will not be disappointed! By the way, if anyone out there has any Youth in Submission, let me know! I can't find them anywhere.

Warsaw (Joy Division)

Here's two nice bootlegs from Joy Division. Forming in 1976, they recorded a five song demo the following year still under their original name, Warsaw. Three of those songs are found on The Ideal Beginning. In 1978 they recorded eleven songs for their first album which was unfortunately never released due to disagreements with the production done by RCA producers. Two songs from this session are found on the Atrocity Exhibition 7''. These tracks sound a bit more raw than the ones found the complete demo here. I got too lazy to scan my own records so I got the pictures from here. I had no info at all on these records before I came across this site. Great Stuff!

The Feederz were a great band from Arizona. They were known for wild stage antics such as Frank Discussion playing with live crickets glued to his head and throwing dead animals at the audience.The Feederz were a one of a kind band, not only in their stage performance, but in their music as well. They made their debut in 1980 with the Jesus 7". In 1984 they unleashed the Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss? LP to the world. If you've never heard this album, you're missing out on one of the greatest punk albums EVER! Seriously. Get it here. Their second album Teachers In Space (Flaming Banker, 1986) is no let down either. With lyrics like "if God is love and Christ is the answer, I'll just grab the Virgin Mary, run off and pants her" you know this album's got to be good! I think if you listen Psychward and Cancer Ward long enough, you'll eventually go insane. This album's got it all, so get it here! By the way, don't be afraid to follow directions in the Outro. You can find a whole lotta other cool shit at their site here.

Busted At Oz

One of my all time favorite records. The Busted At Oz compilation documents the birth of the early Chicago punk scene. Not only does it hold the earliest known recordings of Naked Raygun, it also has tracks from my favorite band to come out of Chicago, Strike Under. Now although the Raygun tracks here are much more experimental than their latter work, it's clearly heard that bands like Strike Under, The Effigies, & Da have their stuff down. Released in 1981 on Autumn Records (Autumn #2) all tracks here were recorded live at Oz March 9-11 1981.

Here you can find Da's Dark Rooms 7" & here you can grab The Subverts Independent Study 7". If anyone out there has got Silver Abuse's Fall From Grace 7" or Da's Time Will Be Kind 12", Pleeeease let me know! I'm dying for a listen! In the meantime, enjoy this nice piece of Chicago history!

Another great early Chicago band, DV8 was Eric Spicer's (Naked Raygun drummer) first band. Released in 1981 on Tough Records, this is also a prime piece of Chicago history. How much would you pay for a piece of this history? $100? $200? Try $329! One sold for this outrageous price earlier today on ebay! I know most of you don't have a spare $329 lying around, so you can grab the DV8 7'' at KBD.

Note: New rip & new scans! Enjoy!
