Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
if we ain't including hardcore in that definition. In which case it would be the Faith/Void split LP.
People rave about the Void half a lot, but they're forgetting how tight and angry the Faith side is as well.
I bet you like My War best of all the Black Flag albums too. Shit, I should probably just get a ring already, right?
my war is really really good, but slip it in is better
although its a tough choice
1) First Four Years
2) My War
first 4 years> damaged> slip it in> loose nut > my war> in my head > family man/process of weeding out (neither are proper albums really)
That's about as 'punk' as I get I reckon.
I came in here to do the right thing, which is to say Bronx 1. Bought it before I'd ever been on here because they were supporting the Lostprophets years and years ago.
The only thing that's really blown me away in the same way is Song To Ruin. I wish I was a teenager in a thriving brit-rock scene again :(
I've never been particularly into older punk (at least compared to more modern stuff) so a more modern punk leaning list (not really looking at hardcore)
Shape of Punk to Come will be seconded
Nimrod (fuck you hater types, its an awesome album)
From Here to Infirmary
Pennybridge Pioneers (ultimate summer pop-punk album)
Birthing the Giant
Sing Sing Death House
Orchestra of Wolves
God I'm looking through my collection and finding this a bit difficult. I'm gonna leave it there for now
Not a duff track and there's 18 of the bastards!
It would have to be Funhouse by the Stooges or Black Monk Time by the Monks
The Damned - Damned, damned, damned
I'd probably say Audit In Progress by Hot Snakes. Pure quality from start to finish, and it begins with one of, if not the best 2 minutes of punk rock ever in the form of Braintrust. So that.
Honorable mentions to The Bronx(i) and The Bronx(iii), which are both superb punk rock albums also.
And Automatic Midnight, I love that too. Two of the most thrilling records I've heard.
Indeed, Automatic Midnight is so bloody feral in places. The 1-2-3 punch of If Credits What Matters..., the title track and No Hands is pure brilliance.
I almost feel like this is a bit of a cop out option but it really is one of the best hardcore punk records I've heard.
but in terms of it's personal significance I've found few punk records that have affect me in the same way.
mentioned earlier on in the thread.
i dont even dislike gallows, but its probably not even in the top 500 punk albums
its got pay to cum and fvk on it for christs sake
both amazing songs, yes. Don't get me wrong, the second half has got some great stuff as well, but it's also got Sacred Love and some decidedly un-punk reggae. The first 10 tracks are all primetime punk
if you just were gonna say one album you could say the s/t tape/re-released LP
side a: sailin on, attitude, the regulator, banned in DC, jah calling, supertouch/shitfit, leaving babylon
side b: fvk, i, big takeover, pay to cum, right brigade, i luv i jah, intro.
its pretty much perfect.
unfortunately i don't have the s/t, i can tell from the tracklisting that it's probably amazing though. Have you heard Rock For Light? Man, that is the worst produced album i've ever heard. If there was an award for "production job which destroys everything good about the band" then Rik Ocasek would be winner
yeah its my favourite, well worth getting.
i never bother with rock for light, its just got all the songs you can get elsewhere but they dont sound half as good, its not worthwhile listening to it really.
I against I is also excellent, and although their later stuff is a bit patchy theres still a lot of good stuff on them
probably is this real? or do dallas.
maybe yank crime.
Theres about 4 albums worth of amazing material on that.
This times a bajillion.
I ever brought. Good times.
....first album ovvviously. Grrrrrr! to anyone that says its not punk.
DK's Fresh fruit is a damn fine call however.
The Ruts - The Crack
then Pink Flag is streets ahead of the rest.
Stiff little fingers - inflammable material.
Cuz it'd probably be Is This Real? by Wiper, I suppose. If we're spreading it out, then Audit in Progress/Automatic Midnight by Hot Snakes, as I said above. KL (Y)
probably post-punk, but it came out in '79 though, so who cares.
otherwise, probably the first lps by: Wire, Buzzcocks, the Germs and Gang of Four i gess
oh, and Milo Goes to College
But this is just the one i decided just now.
some pretty annoying lyrics, and really shit production. I'm intrigued by their earlier stuff though
it changes every time i listen to one of their albums though.
most people say milo... but i dunno, i just like this one a little bit more
being a dog and eating cat feces.
makes me cringe so much my forehead hurts.
apart from that, it's amazing though
agreed on that not being their finest moment
that one? yeah it's not good
It isn't, but I'm listening to it now.
Almost certainly one of the top 6 punk albums of 2005!!!
The Clash's first album. It fucking rocks and spits venom. For some reason they're hated on here.....
Other than that, Damned Damned Damned gets my vote.
would be high on my list too. No hating here...
or Black Flags early eps combined... so probably one of their "early stuff" compilations.
minutemen - double nickels on the dime
wipers - is this real?
descendents - milo goes to college
black flag - first 4 years
gun club - fire of love
i like the cows and beer ep best though
It is sort of a classic.
And also (you will be able to tell I don't listen to a lot of punk), Never Mind The Bollocks .. For all its' imperfections I think it crystalised the era perfectly.
lyrically their best plus has a certain sadness about it which is very compelling.
Give me convenience or give me death (where else am I gonna find 'pull my strings'???)
My favourite flipper album is a compilation (and one of my favourite albums full stop)
sex bomb baby
or maybe police truck on tony hawk. either way, give me convenience or give me death is brilliant.
'the ecstasy of communication' though it is a compilation so doesn't count i guess.
Everybody's Happy Nowadays is such a brilliant song
albums are ELP and Yes
The second half not so much. Ramona can go eat a bag of dicks.
album. But its not a traditional punk sound I guess.
is the correct answer. By about a million miles.
and in a similar ball park:
Broccoli - Home
Hooton 3 Car - Monkey Mayor
both incredible UK punk records.
is correct about the above, both bands were incredible. I'd really recommend trying to pick up the H3C discography disc, it includes their Spot Daylight Ep which was the first thing I got from them and is mindblowing.
or The Rebel Sound of Shit & Failure
I really like them, the Best Of that Load put out and that bizarre Egyptian-themed album Bolides Over Basra are great.
Born Against totally rule. Sam McPheeters photo blog is incredible too! So funny
didn't work. I'd pretty much agree with most of the stuff posted, but haven't heard any Wipers or Wire, so will be checking them out.
Iggy and the Stooges-Raw Power got me into punk rock, so I'll go for that.
Busted - Busted
The Process Of Belief - Bad Religion
but i'm not sure if i'd be right in saying that
i'd definitely be lying if i said that.
