Twenty Years of Dischord (Disc 1) – Various Artists
Man, oh man…what with all of the huffin’ & puffin’ about Michael Moore, the upswing in pre-convention snottiness and the general, uh, spiritlessness of the current discourse (if you can call it that)…this morning I got the feeling that that nasty, sticky, yellowing political wax layer needed to be stripped off.
And off it comes with this collection of raw hardcore anthems.
Plus, it was kinda fun to drive through the well-kept suburbs with my windows rolled down and Minor Threat, Government Issue and State of Alert blaring out…
On the way home it’ll be Disc 2, with Fugazi, Jawbox and a whole pile of other family favorites.
