Live At TargetIn 1980 Berkeley’s Subterranean Records dropped a live recording that would define San Francisco’s Underground Post-Punk/Industrial scene and preserve it for history in a way that no other compilation record seems to have done.  Live At Target features four fiercely and unrepentantly noisy bands reveling in breaking rules the Punk scene was too timid to attack.  Host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse plays this remarkable document in its entirety, and then adds early singles by FLIPPER, and 12″s by THE WITCH TRIALS, FRIGHTWIG, and POP-O-PIES, all originally released on Subterranean.  Time to break eardrums, fellow geeks!

Devouring RootsAt the end of the 1980s, New Folk music was sweeping San Francisco, and local label Subterranean Records was there to document it.  After putting out dissonance fests by bands like FLIPPER and FRIGHTWIG, the label decided to tone down the noise and pump up the politics with a compilation released in 1990 called Devouring Our Roots.  You’ll hear the entirety of this record, featuring local heroes like PENELOPE HOUSTON and The LONGSHOREMEN, and a selection of other Subterranean LPs from the collection of host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse.  Folk off, music geeks!
