v/a THIS TOWN WE OWN an Albany, NY Compilation

In the early '90s one of my favorite records stores was It's Only Rock And Roll located in Lemoyne, PA. I would go there and buy just about anything that I had somewhat heard of, or the band thanked other good bands I liked, or hell even if the cover looked "punk or hardcore". This was one of those instances.

I had a 7" from Intent and had also heard some of Substances stuff so I picked up this comp. It has a nice mix of punk and hardcore bands from the albany area. Ranging from bands that sound like they could be on Dischord Records (Glee Club, Intent) to the harshness of Substance, and then you have the unique Terrorcake track that I absolutely love. I always wished I could find more songs from Terrorcake but over the past 15+ years have not been successful. Anyway, enjoy the comp, I definitely did. Released by RAKE Records.

1. TERRORCAKE "Intricate"
2. GLEE CLUB "Diafraggem"
3. INTENT "Flaw"
4. SUBSTANCE "Thorn In My Side"
5. VERTEBRAE "Jittery City"

The core of INTENT went on to play in MONSTER X and DEVOID OF FAITH. They had 2 "' s and a split 7" and many comp. songs. Just for info.
