Classic compilation! Side 1 better than 2, but those 45 Grave songs are killer. I always loved the 3 songs by the Conservatives. They also have some songs on the You Can't Argue With Suckcess comp. (from memory those aren't as good). Would love to hear more by them. Don't think they released anything else. Anybody know? Anyway, thanks as always for the great blog, Felipe!!

Hi Felipe, Great Post, and BTW: If the last comment is in reference to the Conservatives, they did release unreleased material that is awesome. Its called "All my friends are dead"...If you're wondering what it sounds like, it's basically the songs off of the "Autopsy" by 45 Grave, but with better production sound...and a few surprises. Days of our youth blog posted it some time ago..check it:
Saludos!>>someone might urge him to re-post it, I remember a lot of drama about it being online (for free) at the time,...spare me lol >>RG

Hey Anônimo,

I din't think the Consumers have anything to do with the Conservatives. But they're pretty great!! Here's a link to where the 'All my friends are dead' album can be downloaded:

It's hard to believe it was recorded in 1977!!

Cheers! James

The 'exclusive to this comp' versions of those 45 Grave tracks kick ass. Same goes for the Secret Hate stuff. I am pretty sure the Conservatives did one EP and I think it was called 'Kill Herb Cane' or something like. Growing up in Southern California, this record blew me away in 1982 and I am so glad I was able to see many of these bands.
