VIRUS 228-2 CD $10.50
Both of HALF JAPANESE fame, Jad and Jason gave themselves free reign in the studio between '96 and '98. Passionately driven with utter abandon, their wildness can be expressive and innovative, unintentionally creating new musical genres.

"American Teenage Rock'n'Roll Machine"
LOOK 191-2 CD $10.40

MH 003-2 CD $8.90
Andy leads his guttural army through 11 tracks of totally trashed out (if THE MAKERS were from the Midwest; remember when there wasn't 1000 lame garage style bands) '60s punk.

MTR 381-2 CD $10.80
Fronted by Jay Reatard, who's been rockin' since age 14, this Memphis gang sounds a lot like the Killed By Death comps. Hell yeah!
