Roach Motel

Roach Motel - Roach and Roll EP (Destroy Records) ‘82

Snotty garage-core from the Sunshine State (Florida). Timeless hardcore that has held up over 20 years. I believe these guys are still scaring the shit outta blue hairs in the land of retirement.

Tracks
I Hate The Sunshine State
Shut Up
Wetback
Now Youre Gonna Die
Creep
More Beer

    Not my cup of tea. I’m sure tons of folks love this, but hey, it’s just generic crap with hateful lyrics. Sorry.

  2. Seek & Destroy 78 Says:

    Cool, i totally forgot about that one, i had never heard it except on the reissue cd, but i think it doesn’t include all the songs. Maybe generic but still a cool record, mostly for Florida ‘
    82. Roach Motel still had fucking hits just listen to “Nothing To Lose” or “I Wanna Keep My Gun”… great stuff !

  3. Pogel Says:

    Roach Motel are back together and have played some gigs. I saw them twice recently and was thoroughly entertained.

  4. stinky Says:

    yeah, first I heard RM´s live on split LP w/HATED YOUTH and it didn´t impressed me. This EP is really cool.

  5. Jon Says:

    Good music. Too bad about the lyrics. Just fucking horrible.

  6. Chris Oliver Says:

    “Shut Up” and “Wetback” were on the mixtape that got me into punk way back when. At the time, I thought “Wetback” was hilarious (I had never heard that word before, and it’s a funny word. Besides, I was, like, 15 at the time), now it’s embarassing at best. But most hardcore was made by people who were barely 18, so you have to expect a lot of stupid shit to be in there.

    I will at least say that “Shut Up” is a great song, and that guitar solo in “Now You’re Gonna Die” is amazing!

  7. Dave Says:

    good music but man i hate those fucking lyrics..but i guess thats what makes them a punk band.i mean really,where else can you sing those kind of lyrics except in this style.

  8. meandaddy60 Says:

    There was so much going on in hardcore/punk back then. I remember bands not being “PC” at all, some definately more than others. I like the energy and feel of Roach Motel, can do without a couple of the songs but take it in context. Like Chris Oliver says, most this hardcore was done by angry teens, mad at a lot of things. Punk was always an outlet, not reserved just for the best of lyricists.

  9. Elvis Says:

    Damnit!!! I owned this once long ago and I’d love to hear all the tracks again. I tried the links but sadly they are no longer functional.

  10. Elvis Says:

    Please repost these tracks. I’d really like to hear this EP and the What the Hell EP again.

  11. hedgecore69 Says:

    Hey, I’m not able to download these files. They’ll download, and they’re 0 bytes, not the full file. Suggestions? Maybe repost?
