V/A - Killed By Death Vol. 3 LP
This Johan Kugelberg curated (at least the 1st 4 volumes or so) series of compilations is responsible for a large part of my musical taste. I know there are a lot of people out there that are into the golden age of punk ('77-'82) but it is this obscure subsection of that period that really hits the spot for me. All of the records on these KBD comps are limited runs not because of trying to be obscure how a lot of bands do it today but just because the industry was very exclusive and anything below the major label belt line was just not considered worth it. Boy, were they wrong. Then again, when have the majors ever been truly right about anything? All of these records also have a hearty fuck you attitude, amazing fidelity (or a charming lack of it in some cases) and most importantly they have a story. Some of them were labors of love, some labors of delusion, some were pure hate for the mainstream but every single song included here is pure homemade genius. This is where DIY and music culture formed their strongest bond. I could keep typing on this shit but I figure you've stopped reading by now. Just buy the comps. They're jam packed with some of the best music in the world.
