One day some genius posts on an internet message board that the scene needs a new comp and before you know it there's a 54 band Triple LP/Double CD compilation of all local bands. This record covers all the bases from grindcore, to crust, to SE MetalCore to pop punk and more. Bands you've grown up listening to, bands you've never heard of, bands you'll never hear again. Over all pretty essential listening for anyone into what's going on in Midwestern punk and hardcore today. Standout tracks by Dillinger Four, Soviettes, Misery, Calloused and Holding On. This is only the second Triple LP punk comp I know of. (Dan Doh comp being the first). Available at a special low price because lots of bands played benefit shows to help put this out!
One Pressing, 2002: 2000 triple LP, 2000 double CD.
