Guy who made "American hardcore" posts 900 hardcore tracks

Postby Rizzo » Sat Dec 04, 2010 2:08 pm

Steven Blush, author of American Hardcore: A Tribal History, has uploaded 911 tracks by his favourite bands to his website for free download.

Collected under the banner 24 Hours of Hardcore Punk, the artists featured are all from the 1981-6 US punk explosion that Blush’s book takes as its subject, and include familiar names such as Hüsker Dü, Beastie Boys, Millions Of Dead Cops, Flipper and Bad Brains. Each track is listed with the name of its performer, its city of origin, and the release from which its taken. Even if you’re not interested in the music, it’s worth scanning your eye over the incredible titles – ‘Slam, Spit, Cut Your Hair, Kill Your Mom’, ‘The Right To Be Poor And Radical’, ‘Fuck You Brooke Shields’, ‘Anti-Pac Man’ and, er, ‘A Child And His Lawnmower’ are some of our favourites. The band names are similarly inspired: Ultra Violence, Media Boys, Russian Meatsquats, Vatican Commandos, (honestly) Bollocks. Bollocks. Brilliant.

If you’re keen to delve into this treasure trove of Reagan-era aggro, but have no idea where to start, we recommend you read FACT’s 20 Best US Hardcore Records Ever Made feature by Philip Sherburne.

The second edition of Bush’s American Hardcore tome was published last month by Feral House; find more info about it, along with the download page for 24 hours of Hardcore Punk, here.

Haven't downloaded it myself but I figured people would be interested.

I think it's cos it's 24 hours worth. totally should be a single file download option but hey, that's cool.

Record collecting is coming back in a big way. After the introduction of the CD, vinyl sales plummeted — there was only a small handful of us diehards keeping it alive.

Sounds like bit of an exaggeration.

:lol:

What I meant to say is that Steven Blush comes across as an arrogant dick who thinks that just because he clocked promoting shows and buying hardcore records in the early '80s, and a bunch of bands started playing stink metal and some guys switched to being full-time drug addicts, that nothing after 1986 counts.

He was there. he's entitled to his opinion. Not that I agree with all of it.

Great website, I just downloaded the songs I didn't have, still nearly 300 songs.

I found the film fairly entertaining for someone who doesn't listen to much hardcore, and I found out that I definitely enjoy 80's hardcore more than anything modern.

So am I right in thinking that the tracks were downloadable but no longer are? Someone who got the whole lot needs to chuck that shit up rapidshare or summin
I think it's lint.
