 Hardcore from Amherst: manic, nuanced, and outstanding. Deep Wound was
 (oddly in retrospect) the jump-off band for slack ironists J. Mascis
 (Dinosaur Jr.) and Lou Barlow (Sebadoh). Mascis plays drums here,
 except for a stray guitar solo.[GM]

  (Open Up / More Than Fashion / Circle Storm / City To City / (The
   Girl's Got) Limits // Brotherhood / Yellow / Stand Proud / Insurance
   Risk / Escape)
 Boston city-kid hardcore, a surprising blend of fervency and
 production. Sounds like it was recorded by lab-coated sound engineers 
 at an early-60s RKO studio, strange and somewhat wrong-sounding, but 
 its power is undeniable. D.Y.S. were the big shit in Boston for awhile, 
 but never out of town. This 12" rips; the following LP, like a lot of 
 later Boston efforts, was uninspired metal.[GM]

Fragile And The Eggs
- If You See Kay / If You See Kay (Long Version) 7" Long View LV 8010, 1980 PS
 Power pop with these chord progressions that go down instead of
 up giving it a dark sound. They were not punk in the
 KBD sense but definitely power pop with a punk darkness.[SS]

Freeze				Boston
- I Hate Tourists / Don't Forget Me Tommy 7" Rebel 809-21, 1980 HS
- Violent Arrest / Voices From My Window // Halloween Night / Guilty Face 7" 
						Modern Method MM018, 1983
 The first single is lame-o Farfisa punk, justified by the band's Cape
 Cod provincialism. The Guilty Face ep great punky hardcore.[GM] Presumably 
 Gavin's talking about the flipside because I hear no farfisa on the 
 great I Hate Tourists which has just about everything you'd want in a 
 punk rock song - bad attitude, amateur solos, great vocals. The punks are 
 divided on Don't Forget Me Tommy - there's a great song there despite the 
 instrumentation and (humourous) attempts at reggae rhythms, I guess it's 
 mainly carried by the vocal melody and the vocals themselves.[HW]

  (What You Pay For / Outcast / Poor, Poor, Pitiful You / The Grinder /
   Unite Or Lose // This Is Your Life / My America / Choir Boy / Boston's
   Finest / Rifle / We're An American Band)
 A bunch of Boston yo-yos who started as a sucky hardcore band, and
 turned into a ferocious one. Kill For Christ is fairly primitive and
 thin-sounding, while My America is a giant wall of sound. Radiobeat
 Studios, and its house engineer, Lou Giordano, made Boston hardcore
 bands sound incredibly big on record (he did almost all the X-Claim
 releases). Live, the FUs were merely really good. The band's swaggering 
 Archie Bunker politics seemed threatening once, but now just seem like 
 young guys making goofy Rambo-faces.[GM]

Jerry's Kids
- Is This My World? LP X-Claim 6, 1983
  (I Don't Belong / Cracks In The Wall / Tear It Up / Crucify Me / Break
   The Mold / Raise The Curtain // Vietnam Syndrome / Build Me A Bomb /
   New World / Lost / No Time / Is This My World?)
 This is what Jerry's Kids was like: You were in a band in 1983, in
 Connecticut or upstate New York or somewhere. You practiced a lot, and
 kids came to your shows in basements and VFW halls, and you printed up
 T-shirts and stickers and all that. You thought you were pretty good.
 Then, one day, Jerry's Kids came around, and you went to see them. And
 when they hit the stage in an amphetaminized fury, airborne and flailing
 and sounding like a cataclysmic explosion, you were suddenly two
 inches tall.

 There was an ad for a re-release of this record in the early '90s
 whose headline went, 'Time for some REAL hardcore." And it does, in
 fact, make the modern stuff sound awfully weak and lifeless. The
 tempos here aren't really that fast (although the manic performances
 make it seem as though they are), and the songs are good and catchy
 without yielding up any real classics. But this is weapons-grade
 stuff, loud at any volume and a good indicator of what this utterly
 crazed band was like onstage.[GM]

 Happy to review any of the La Peste stuff though the tenor of any
 La Peste write-up is always pre-ordained: no matter how good the
 material, there's only one Better off Dead! There's a La Peste cassette
 that floated around Boston once upon a time. Sound quality varied
 (and has degraded somewhat), and most of the songs got picked for the
 Matador LP, but not all. Songs on the CS were: Whites Of Your Eyes / Don't
 Know Right From Wrong / Lying In The Sun / After Dinner Crimes / Spymaster
 / In The Army Now / Truth / Whirlpool / Dick Tracy / Road / Not Today
 / Pop Rock Polls / Let Me Sleep / She's A Girl / Die In My Sleep /
 T.K.O. / Too Many Nights / T.N.T. [AC/DC!] / Kill Me Now / Leave Me Alone
 / Acid Test / Better Off Dead. The song titles on the live LP were mangled
 too - the correct tracklist is above.[Michael Train]

 The first song on each side of the LP is a decent, upbeat number, but
 the rest is forgettable, and nothing reaches the level of the single.[JF]

  (Don't Let The Bastards... // Wardrobes In Hell/You're A Weapon)
- Sirens / The Need // 1926 / David Hild 12" Propeller PROP-1005, 1982
 F-vox punk with a definite experimental/postpunk edge. The single's
 flipside pairing (it comes off more as one song with no break) is good
 if you're a fan of the genre. I've owned the 12" but don't recall
 being impressed by it.[JF]

 The Gang Green tracks are the loudest, hardest, fastest, most unintelligible
 music I've ever heard. Great stuff! Jerry's Kids are up there on the
 loud-fast-hard scale, too, but the lead singer is usually understandable.[TW]

  The Zoo Types record is oddly no affiliation whatsoever with Worcester's
  Beast label. (Plus, it's bad DIY hippie-psych.)  Apparently there was no 
  Beast 3, maybe an aborted project.[JL]

  There is no catalog number anywhere on the Uncommitted 7" (matrix is 26-A/26-B), but it 
  is referred to as 003 on the insert to the Wicked Good Time Volume 2 LP. The record was
  probably self-released by the band with the label name and catalog number lent to make
  the release more legit.[MB]
