In the spirit of the Killed By Death series, about two years ago, a great late 70s, early 80s comp called Shielded by Death appeared on Germanys Incognito label.
Compiler Keith Grave has come up with yet another collection of rare and raging punk rock from 79 through 84 from Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.
Bacchus Archives presents present 20 tracks of primal American punk, featuring some names you might have heard of (Jack Tragic, Chronic Disorder, 8th Route Army, The Foreign Objects) and, unless you lived in the region weve focused on, may not have heard of. This doesnt matter.
The entire comp is a treat to fans of old punk rock and well equate this to some of our regional 60s comps such as The East Side Sound and Legend City.
