The Best of Brought To Life - 401

1. THEORETICAL GIRLS - 'Theoretical Girls'
Demo - USA - Late '70s
An early Glenn Branca combo. I was never that fussed on their sole single, but hearing their compilation on Acute records in 2002, they did some pretty hot stuff it turns out.
2. THE CURE - '10:15 Saturday Night'
Flipside of 'Killing An Arab' - Small Wonder 7" - UK - 1978

'S/T' - Fountain Of Youth LP - USA - 1986
4. AGNOSTIC FRONT - 'No One Rules'
'United Blood' - Self released 7" - USA - 1983
It's all a bit macho, of course, but it's loud blarin' punk rock, man.
5. DIE B1 - 'Trotzdem'
'Leisetreter Folterer' - Self Released LP - Germany - 1982

6. THEORETICAL GIRLS - 'Lovin' In The Red'
Demo - USA - Late '70s
7. BUGEYED - 'Take 'Em On'
'Monsters Rule My World' - Words Of Warning LP - UK - 1992
I was never that fussed on the Pleasant Valley Children's LP either, but Pig Havoc's next band was altogether more brutal and twisted. The live experience was just that, I can tell you.
