Just because they’re out of print doesn’t mean you can’t find these Vegas-bred classics. Try eBay, Discogs, MusicStack and Gemm, and if all else fails, Google the title and start tracking down leads. It’s out there somewhere!
Who’s the Fool 12” (1984).
M.I.A. left town before releasing an album, so this (or Samsons Army’s 1988 LP Where’s Dan?) is the holy grail of first-wave Vegas punk.
Vermin From Venus
Sex on Planet X 12” (1989).
Before Dirk Vermin was a TV star or tattoo artist, he released this debut full-length.
A Quiet Time of Desperation 12” (2001).
You’ve heard the name, now hear the record. Hardcore with real heart.
Curl Up and Die
Unfortunately We’re Not Robots 12” (2002).
Mathcore has rarely been this memorable, or this fun (see: the 8-minute “You’d Be Cuter If I Shot You in the Face”).
Lovers & Drunkards 7” (2005).
The folkster genius was at the top of his game when he recorded this three-track beauty for Not Not Fun records.
