Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Let’s Punk the Trumpocalyse

To paraphrase Jello Biafra, we've got a bigly problem now.  I'm tempted to wave a white flag, but it's high time to hoist the black one.  As the hypocrisy of Trumpocracy begins to reign, and the ghost of Joe McCarthy stalks the land, someone observed that at least we can expect some great punk rock during the next four years.  There are some great young punk bands out there such as Muuy Bien, Tenement, & Uranium Club.

Here are three dozen covers of California punk classics, from 1985s "My War" back to 1977s "Class War".  In this hour of darkness, I find it heartening to hear these bands (some new, some not) breathing fire into the embers of these timeless tales of terror.
