Great tracks by well-knowns Dr. Know, False Confession and Flower Leperds. The Dr. Know songs were clearly before Plug-in Jesus with Kyle . The False Confession song would be re-recorded for their debut EP as "Our Savior." And the Flower Leperds songs would all be collected on The Original Group. The band Crankshaft, their two songs are the very best here! Great horror-inspired and aggressive as hell hardcore.
Dr.Know is one of the founding Nardcore bands that started in '81 and still haven't quit. The roots of their style is hardcore-punk but also merged with some metal influences giving them a somewhat crossover sound without fully becoming thrash.
Michael and Spider tell all....Please don't call PETA! Just for the record we don't hate dogs.In fact we have a dog that is the love of our lives. The song "I Hate Dogs" was meant to be a joke from the very beginning.One day back in 1979 we decided to compose the worst punk rock song ever. We came up with a distasteful theme (hating dogs) thus writing the lamest lyrics we could think up. Again I repeat myself, it was meant to be a bad joke. It turns out " the joke was on us as "... " I Hate Dogs " became Hey Taxi's most popular and most requested song!On the B-side - " War Is Hell " - a song about the absurdity of war. " Queen Bee " was inspired by an old Joan Crawford movie.

‘Death’ means change, and we were tired of all the stuff we were hearing on the radio, all the new pop music and that kind of stuff. What we really wanted to see was a change on the radio. We were sick of all the fluffy music on the radio.” For about eight years, Death On The Radio has been together under the current moniker. For most of that time, up until the end of 2017, Powers’ now ex-wife, Mary, was the vocalist. As of December, though, Maxine Murder has been fronting the band. Maxine brought to the band — a passion, and an energy that has not been in this band for quite a while,” DeLong says. “It’s fun, exciting and new. She has a great voice and she’s brought a killer violin to the mix, which really adds something. She’s just brought a fresh new life and energy to the band.
