Faster and Louder Vols. 1 & 2

Rhino Records

An absolute top-drawer series from Rhino with an emphasis on hardcore circa the eighties. An unflinching look at the seamy underbelly of American and British punk. What’s nice about the collection here is that many songs are culled from singles or in otherwise seldom heard versions. There’s also a lot of inclusion of bands that were big back in the day, yet have faded into relative obscurity – and many I’ve never heard of before. Another nice thing is the very extensive liner notes and biographical info on each band included and Gary Panter’s swell wrap-around cover art. If you can find them (I believe they are out of print), get them – you won’t be sorry.
