Middle Of AmericaThe Chicago underground music scene of the early-to-mid 1980s is where yours truly The Rock’N’Roll Nurse cut his teeth as a lad, and this compilation LP from 1984 is a pretty good gathering of the hottest punk acts of the time.  Featuring choice tracks by NAKED RAYGUN, The EFFIGIES, BIG BLACK, ARTICLES OF FAITH, SAVAGE BELIEFS, NADSAT REBEL, RIGHTS OF THE ACCUSED and OUT OF ORDER, this comp is a slice of Chicago music history that still rocks hard!  Cornponed hardcore for you, fellow music geeks!

PEACE CompThe Hardcore Punk scene of the mid 1980s often eschewed the nihilism of many of its punk predecessors, with many bands espousing strongly leftist ideals and fiercely anti-war messages.  All of that came together in a big way on a sprawling 2xLP compilation released in 1984 appropriately entitled P.E.A.C.E.  Hear the entire set with commentary by your host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse.  Morph those guns into plowshares, fellow music geeks!

You Weren't ThereThere was some mighty fun noise going on in Chicago back in the late ’70s/early ’80s, and most likely you weren’t there to hear it.  But now you get a second chance to hear inspired (if often inept) Punk Rock scratchings from the like of NAKED RAYGUN, DA!, END RESULT, TUTU AND THE PIRATES and many other Midwestern ne’er-do-wells.  Host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse plays the entire soundtrack to the terrific indie documentary You Weren’t There, as well as some Chi-Town gems from his personal collection.  Listen to da underground from da Windy City, adventurous geeks!
