Pagans – Dead End America (Drome Records) 1979

Growing up I preferred the more hardcore sound that emerged in the early 80’s never paying much attention to the more “punk” bands like the Pagans. Now that I am an old man I find the “punk” stuff more enjoyable. This is the Pagans fourth single released in ’79, contains a great cover version of Nightcrawlers ‘Little Black Egg’. Would have to go with 1978’s release ‘Street Where Nobody Lives / What’s This Shit Called Love’ as being my favorite Pagans release.

1977 Six and Change / Six and Change (Neck 1143)
1978 Street Where Nobody Lives / What’s This Shit Called Love (Drome DR 1)
1979 Not Now No Way / I Juvenile (Drome DR 5)
1979 Dead End America / Little Black Egg (Drome DR 7)

Assfactor 4 – Smoked Out 7″ (old glory records #10) 1994

Excellent new school hardcore in the Gravity vein. Rites of Spring harmonics meet crust core power. Interesting & original. More of the same screamy hardcore that’s lightning fast and chaotic with a hint of catchiness. Definitely one of the best of this style. This second release has slightly clearer production than the first 7 inch but not to the point of making the record overproduced.
