Adolescents Frontier 1981
"Welcome to Reality" is not a cut from the original 1981 debut LP from this Southern California punk band but rather a bonus track to a much later CD re-release.
Flipper Life Is Cheap
Generic Public Flipper Limited LLC 1981
Influential sludge punk from San Francisco. Founding member Ricky Williams was in the band for a hot second before being booted but would go on to be part of other notable San Fran acts such as CRIME, Toiling Midgets, and The Sleepers.

Drug Church Million Miles of Fun N

Mission of Burma Blunder
The Sound the Speed the Light Matador 2009
Mission of Burma released an acclaimed EP, LP, and live album in the early 80s before disbanding due to a band member's issue with tinnitus. Decades later, the band reunited for what was supposed to be a one-off series of shows. That ended being a multi-LP stretch with the band having never lost a step despite the long hiatus.
Dance Of The Headless Bourgeoisie Wrong 1998
Eighth studio LP from - in my opinion - Canada's best punk band. Others will claim DOA. Those people are... wrong. (See what I did there?)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions Pump It Up
This Year's Model (2021 Remaster) UMe/Elvis Costello 2021
Elvis Costello? On this show? At this time? Damn straight. Costello's sniveling lyrics and backing band on his second studio LP easily rivals anything released by your ponk rawk icons.
