Various – Kiss or Kill Club Presents Los Angeles Classics Vol. 1 (War Room Records)
What is punk, who is punk, where is punk? It’s been over 30 years since punk broke and we have less of an idea what it is today than we did when Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee, and Tommy gave it to us.
And here we have a punk compilation of 11 bands who don’t at all sound alike, yet share a common groove in punk rock. From the joyous pop of the Randies‘ “Boys in Stereo” to the Deadboys-inspired Deadbeat Sinatra (mp3), to the early 90s buzz and melody of King Cheetah‘s “Victoria in Reverse” (mp3), a lot of ground is covered. The only sub-genres missing seem to be straight edge and ska.
The Kiss or Kill mob has been building their own scene in LA for a couple of years and have recently begun to take their acts on the road. This comp is a great sampler of bands you MUST see live.
MP3 of Bang Sugar Bang’s “Super Cool” is also available.

I was very impressed with the Dollyrots and Bang Sugar Bang when we saw them during the [url=http://www.internationalpopoverthrow.com/]Chicago IPO[/url] this year. The Dollyrots sounded like a cartoon band in a classic japanimation series. Totally fun and cool.
What happened to LA?
Is there really something decent happening there?
This comp is really cool.
This comp is awesome!!! Yeah, Finally L.A. has something to talk about rather than the fucking Hair metal days!!!
Fuck punk. This is the best MUSIC I’ve heard on one record since my face was covered in acne and I pleasured myself to Cosmo in my parents’ bathroom. I don’t care what sub-genre or category of music you wanna call it, every song on here is an orgasmic icepick to the eardrum.
