Reposting this incredible record because I've been visiting it a lot recently. Read my original write-up here. This is one of the most important punk records of the past decade in my opinion. Here's a scan of the booklet as well. Love these boys.
Fucking finally, it's been years since a good subversive hardcore band has come out of Olympia and now we have G.L.O.S.S. A scene which just four years ago was a radical punk utopia has slipped into the mundane grips of annoying, contrived, drab, lame punk imagery reflecting and projecting all the same bullshit the world smothers us with (Society's Shit you may say?) NOW, thank fucking god, a band comes flying out of the gate with a blast of fresh air in the dingy stale room of punk. Get it while the gettin's good.

Now here is a wonderful treat. Mark just keeps the groovy oddities coming out of Northwest Indiana. He's been doing cassingle installments this year and this is the February edition. A little band with two infectious songs pertaining to too much Mountain Dew and love with a battery. Seriously so sick.
I never thought I would own this record. It is incredible and run in limited quantities. Now thanks to my good friend Yecatl, who runs Cintas Pepe Records of which this LP is the first release in 2010, my dream became a reality. Seventeen tracks of blisteringly fierce Mexican Hardcore all on one disc. This comp introduced me to such favorites as Inservibles, Los Monjo, Crimen, Ratas Del Vaticano among every other burner on this disc. This comp is essential for contemporary hardcore music coming out of Mexico. Productive bands with dope shit to say. I am so incredibly grateful to have toured with Yecatl and made his friendship and to add a tangible feeling and connection to this record I used to listen to so much. Now's your chance to catch the feelin!
