This record single handedly changed the way I thought about hardcore. To me they are the first and last word on power violence/thrash/grind or whatever you want to call it. Aggressive, gruff vocals and super fast, especially for 1988. Between them and Siege, they started it all.
This was their first single. While it doesn't officially have a title, it is pretty much known as the "Machismo" single. The first press was originally self released by the band. There are a lot of bootlegs out there on this one. The most common is the "Easy Come, Easy Go" one. I got burned on that one as an original off ebay once! Hopefully some of these pictures will help if you are so inclined on tracking one down.
They ended up re-releasing all the songs off this record as part of the Slave lp. Try to track this or the Slave album down if you can.
Welcome to my blog on collecting hardcore and punk rock vinyl. By no means do I claim to have the biggest, best or most complete collection.
I just love collecting hardcore/punk records and have since I was a teenager. I now have a wife and two kids, a mortgage, car payments and a downtown suit and tie guy job. Still, when I can I try to keep up with the hardcore scene, the bands and labels that keep me feeling young when everything else in this world tells me I am not! I will try to post every few days and hopefully like minded people can have fun with the posts and with your participation, start some discussions. Thanks for looking and tell all your friends!
