SUBURBAN ANNIHILATION - The California Hardcore Explosion / From The City To The Beach: 1978-1983 2XLP

This aggressive collection draws from California's rich history of punk, more specifically hardcore: a new sound that eschewed melody for intensity. A sound that took punk harder and faster. A sound intrinsically American.

While hardcore was also burning over on the East Coast, in California it was ignited and sprawled, a sonic punch in the face that raged socio-political disdain and total abandonment for commercialism, fueled by a crumbling American Dream and the collapse of family values.

SUBURBAN ANNIHILATION takes you from the major cities to coastal towns to SoCal suburbs, showcasing some of the most influential bands on the West Coast. Blasting off with the Adolescents' "I Hate Children", it heads from Middle Class' "Out Of Vogue" to the surf punk of Agent Orange's "Bloodstains". Also present are many other bands integral to the era: T.S.O.L., Wasted Youth, Germs, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies, Negative Trend, Flipper and many more.

Though the music was designed to repel, this historical document has been lovingly designed to remind us that this genre created some of the most immediate and acutely-realized music ever produced. This collection of choice cuts is essential for long-time hardcore and punk fans, just as those new and curious about one of the angriest genres to have given birth in America.
