Compilations of post-punk, D.I.Y., early new wave, concept rock, avant-garde noodlings (with a beat), bizarre hardcore, obscure demos / early tracks by famous bands, anachronistic glam, and other lost causes far from the norm or weirdly beautiful that came in the wake of the first punk explosion in Los Angeles. A large percentage of this music is not available commercially or through web streaming services. If you are an artist who wants your tracks removed, please let me know.
Almost all of this music is still unavailable on services like Spotify and Pandora, and much of it is simply not available commercially at all. But a few of the bands (like Marina Swingers and the Deadbeats) have reformed or created websites where their music can be purchased. My next post will be a series of links to these sites. In the meantime, enjoy!
