Here we are again but hwile we were away some serious shit happened:If you tried to download anything during the last days you probably noticed a problem, yes all links were dead, both servers Divshare and 4shared deleted the uploaded files and banned my accounts so things were really serious, the 90-95% of links were dead and only Whispy's links were still active. Due to its policy Div deleted all my files while 4shared activated back my account 24 hours later. Its quite strange two servers doing the same shit at the same time. I don't know if either 7inchcrust is victim of a bad circumstance or someone choose to complain there and not to make a comment here and ask about removing a(some) record(s) but whatever is the truth behind our conjecture, the fact is all the work done and uploaded in Div now has been lost. Its hard to re-up all these files,it will take weeks and months of hard work, some records were visitors fave's so these ep's will be up as soon as it is possible, for the rest we ll see. maybe some request reup's and for the rest only samples of one or two tracks. we ll see...
Anyway, we would like to celebrate the 200.000 visits with not such problems but thats life. We have reached the 200.000 visitors here and we want to thank all of you who visited, commented, downloaded, contributed and blah blah blah (the usual rant), now we head on for the 300.000 (hopefully) so lets have a drink and celebrate, cheerss!
"Drinking is great" is a compilation that came out in 1985 on Fatal Erection Records, a label run by Pig Champion (RIP) and Malcolm Conover. Fatal Erection released "Pick your king" and "Record collectors are pretentious assholes" of Poison Idea plus some ep's of Final Warning, E13, Osgood Slaughter and the Turbonegro/Flying Crap-split 10".
There' s no need to say anything about the kings of punk, so only a few words about the other bands: E13 (or Etherteen) were from Eugene, Oregon, they started in 1982 and released two ep's :"No mercy for swine" in 1984 and "Quest for Gilligan" in 1985, both on Fatal Erection. Damon Oliver their original vocalist died by liver disease in spring of 2006, you can find a brief biography of band, photos etc here. Members of E-13 formed Osgood Slaughter (1986/87) and released a 12" on (where else? ) Fatal Erection.
Lockjaw were from Portland and they were accused for being fascists. They selfreleased two ep's "Shock value"(1982) and "Dead friends" (1983). the E13 webpage labels them as neo-fascists but according to Kill From The Heart " Lockjaw was labeled "Portland's most hated band, they were ripped by the media, protested, and a couple of local record stores destroyed all the band's records. The band was accused of being nazis and white power racists, but it was all hysteria, rumor, and of course not true...", ... The record review of "Shock value" in Maximum Rock n Roll #3 states "Unfortunately the lyrics are really stupid, being sexist, violence prone and despite their protestations, racist as hell". A bunch of violent idiots i guess..
Final Warning were the old legends from Portland, the only release by them is their ep on Fatal Erection (1984, was re-released in 2008 by Black Water Records), they started in 1982 under the name Broken Trust and sometime they included Glenn Estes and Charlie Nims (aka Myrtle Tickner) who also played in Poison Idea. Members continued with Napalm Beach, Gruntruck, Zipgun and others, apart from Drinking is Great they appeared in "Northwest Hardcore" comp. tape (Media Blitz, 1988), in 2008 they formed back, you will find more details here
