Up to this point I’ve been laying off the hardcore, for the most part, in favor of a more diverse selection of the punk-oriented stuff that was in the air during the period I was thirteen to twenty years old. While it’s true that I was listening to a lot of different stuff thanks to the varied tastes of friends, radio programmers and my own odd sonic proclivities, it’d be disingenuous to imply that I/we didn’t listen to hardcore, which was the prevailing form of the period. I listened to a friggin’ ton of the stuff (still do, to be perfectly honest), and adored it, damned near every band I was in at the time was playing some sort of hardcore variant and I was buying records of it with every spare dollar I could keep hold of. 

This podcast is part three of a sampling of some of the zippy, noisy shit that got me, and many other locals, careening off of walls. How the hell a buncha kids from the eastside of Los Angeles found out about obscure bands from places like Florida, Holland, Finland and Sweden is a testament to the efforts of late night radio DJs, hip record stores and the tenacity of rags like Flipside and MRR. I thank ’em kindly.
