Capitol Punishment - s/t (stagedive. sd 1) ‘83

I don’t know much about this band except they were from Milano, Italy and this 7″ came out in 1984. This, along with a handful of other Italian bands, was some of the earliest stuff I mail-ordered from ads in maximum rock and roll zine. […]

Painted Willie - S/T (Spinhead) ‘84

Former members of Sin 34, Painted Willie’s sound was a unique blend of straight ahead rock, adolescent humour and punk energy. This is their first single; it was a cool departure from the hardcore that was prevalent at the time. They went on to release a few albums […]

Just a note on the posting…

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

Its great to see all the people who are showing support and uploading singles to this site. The one problem we would like to avoid is uploading singles that are the CD re-releases. We would like to keep this site as pure as possible and would like to only see real vinyl rips of […]
