Landlords

Landlords - Hey It's A Teenage House Party 1984
01. Landlords - Hey It's A Teenage House Party, 1984 LP
     Catch Trout Records - CT112
One of those lost gems of 80s hardcore. Who were the Landlords? Were are they now? Who designed the artwork? Why isn't there a Ronald Reagan picture on the cover? Because the Landlords were on a better orbit than the generic pseudo-political slogan-saturated hypo hippie drooling that plagues HC records. They had the Adrenalin OD disease with some SOA era-Henry Rollins clone on vocals. Brilliant fast rocking punk thrash! This is one of the legendary Don Zientara recordings, old-timers know what I mean. He produced several of the things posted here. Now, I've listened to this LP a lot and will continue until the end of time. Listen to the Landlords. They know. They will teach you:

  2. I too had never heard of these guys before and wasn't really expecting much, but it's quite good! They remind me of some of the bands on Mutha Records. Thank you!!!

  3. Actually, this is an early incarnation of everyones favorite Noise Gods, The Happy Flowers. I find the similarities to be there, if you listen for it.
