P.E.A.C.E./War

Had forgotten all about this one, we used to play the shit out of it. Assembeled by the San Francisco punk mag, "Maximum Rock n Roll" (actually still have a few old copies around here somewhere, would be a great scan I oughta do at some point.......btw anyone have any scans of classic Trouser Press, New York Rocker, or Creem, ca. early 1980's.......man that shit was GREAT, definitely one area in which 1980 was FAR better than today), this was intended to raise money for anti-nuke causes.....don't know, truthfully, how THAT ever worked out, but for a 22 year old in 1984 (ah, irony), this was a political bombshell that also rocked like a mofo, with folks like the Dead Kennedys, Crass, Cheetah Chrome & the Motherfuckers and many more, obviously this was not a GOP fundraiser.....a good portion of the planet is represented here, also, as this is a 60-track mammoth release on 2 discs, I'm cheating, I have a vinyl rip but it sounds like shit because by vinyl copy went through such punishment before I did the rip, I figured maybe finding a fresh digital copy might be better for blogging purposes. The "P.E.A.C.E." on the title stood for Peace, Energy, Action, Cooperation, Evolution.......actually in 2014 this works on a couple of levels because the arrogant pretentiousness of most of this work is quite dated and amusing, besides the fact that there is some great hardcore stuff here, and, as said before, from LOTS of corners of the world.

So, to touch on a highlight or two, the first disc (the "peace" disc) we get leftist representation from, among others, Japan (GISM), Italy (Wretched), Sweden (Mob 47), and of course Crass from the UK (trying to recall if I've ever done a Crass post, I don't think I have, they were certainly interesting at the very least), among a slew of USA bands such as the Dicks, The Offenders, ODFX and others.

The second disc, the "war" disc, includes a few well known bands such as the Dead Kennedys, Butthole Surfers, the UK Subs, and Reagan Youth, sprinkled among some other gems such as Millions of Dead Cops, Wargasm, Impact, and the Subhumans. If you are close to my age and have forgotten about this one, it'll be like a little Christmas present for ya, if it's "new" stuff to you, well, yeah, in fact, we DID take this stuff seriously, what of it?!?

I've included the country of origin for each act here because I think it's incredible that they managed to
round up such a broad variety of them. Please comment if this sparks a memory or has you breaking out your old safety pins (yes, i REALLY did that too).
