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!

Not So QuietA bit over 30 years ago, SF mainstay punk publication MAXIMUM ROCK’N’ROLL released a groundbreaking hardcore punk compilation called “Not So Quiet On The Western Front” featuring offerings by 47 bands from Northern California and Nevada.  More than a dusty historical document today, it exists as a memorable blast of energy from an underground scene on the verge of national and international breakout.  The Rock’N’Roll Nurse plays the 2-LP original album in its entirety, and then adds a fave extra from local heroes ANGST.  Skank like a geek, punks!
