LATER, THAT SAME YEAR


60 minutes of early East Bay Area punk from the same gentleman that brought you Absolutely Zippo! fanzine. The track listing should speak for itself here: FUEL, BLATZ, GOODGRIEF, SPITBOY, ANGER MEANS, FILTH, MONSULA, FIFTEEN, JACK ACID, DOWNFALL (post-OPERATION IVY and pre-RANCID), THE GR'UPS, CHICKENHEAD (Florida cult noise punk from the purveyor of SCAM! zine), and the way lesser known FUZZZONE and BUMBLESCRUMP. Personal highlight is the PAXTON QUIGGLY/GEORGE HATED track, taking a spoken word track and slapping it on top of a PAXTON QUIGGLY instrumental - the slipshod mix adds to the dark vibe of the story. Even though I moved to this area a few years after Later, That Same Year (and didn't venture across the bridge with any frequency for a few years after that), these are the bands at the nucleus of the most important era of Bay Area punk this side of DEAD KENNEDYS. Raw, earnest and real.
