More BCT jams to fill up a Friday. This time the hardcore jams come from Americaland (except AKUTT INNGGELSE, some random Scandinavians tacked onto the end of the tape who totally slay) - PSYCHO (Boston), LOVE CANAL (Los Angeles), THE DRILLS (Seattle), EAT THE RICH (San Jose), Terminal Escape alumni THE UNEXPECTED (New Jersey), SUBURBAN DECAY (more Jersey), legendary scorchers from DETENTION, and DISORDERLY CONDUCT from Florida. Lots of raw and likely live recordings, perfectly suited for blasting at top fukkn volume because you are a punk rocker. The DETENTION songs blew my mind when I first heard them courtesy of ILLEGITIMATE SONS guitarist Dan, and they are just as powerful today. And yes, I know that the EAT THE RICH cover of "Electric Funeral" totally blows.
Worth noting: I'm assuming that the band WHITE PRIDE is indeed a white pride band, and yeah I think that's somewhere between stupid and offensive, but 25 years later it seems silly to edit them out of the tape, especially since their songs are super catchy. No sense in starting a dialogue about the musical merits of '80s nazi shitheads, since they can all get fukkd and probably spend their adult days pulling swing shifts at Best Buy to support their cross eyed aryan offspring. You gotta sell a shitload of Lil Wayne CDs and Call Of Duty games and kiss a lot of your bosses ass to support a one bedroom apartment full of blond haired rugrats, so my heart goes out to them.
I think White Pride were more a case of "let's wind up the PC punks & MRR!" Pretty stupid, obviously. Thanks for posting this!
White Pride was a racist band.
do you have all BCT tapes ?
If I remember correctly, White Pride was a pre-Drunks With Guns band meant to be satirical/offensive, and not any kind of serious racist platform.
Thanks for the great tapes!
Wp was people from drunks with guns. Totally meant to piss people off. A buddy has a really clean tape of them that came from someone in dwg.
Just started reading your blog man. Loving it. Was just thinking back to the days where you'd see tape distros a punk shows. Hopefully see ya soon. - tony in detroit
