Special Forces

Special Forces - Special Forces - 1987 01. Special Forces - Special Forces, 1987 Vinyl LP Album
     New Wave Records, New Wave Records - 020, N.W.020
One classic that is not worshiped enough! Textbook, exemplary 80s hardcore punk and proud of it, with all the energy, the abrasion and the urgency. After having been abysmally disappointed by the newest MDC album -  a spectacular  failure, the Special Forces record makes my day much brighter. Fans of true MDC, Capitol Punishment and the legion of others cannot bypass Special Forces!

    https://madmensstt.bandcamp.com/ Their most recent record (Glitch) is way better. They have digested Prong very well.

  3. That new MDC is terrible. Ripping off themselves is bad enough, but it's like they aren't even ripping off the good bits.

    Well, we can't all grow old gracefully.

  4. The guy who made the artwork on this LP (Kent Mathieu) did the artwork for Autopsy's Severed Survival (that first artwork that got banned later) and Verbal Abuse's Rock Your Liver LP among others... cool. Thanks. I never checked this out before, don't know why, it's pretty good record.
