This is one of the best D.R.I. recordings of all time in my opinion !
Recorded in 83' at The Vats (old Hamm's Brewery in San Francisco),
and officially put out in 84', although i've never heard any more of
this Demo than the 2 songs on the The Dirty Rotten/Violent
Pacification extended CD.
One of the best bands I ever saw Live !!!!!
On their 83' Tour I saw em' at the Cathay De Grande with Ill Repute,
and a young Stalag 13 fresh on the scene.
By far the fastest bands I had seen to date, although i'd been going
to hardcore shows since 80'.
D.R.I. blew me away ! Played like 40 songs in 30 minutes or something,
barely even took breaks between songs.
Drummer was in nothing but a speedo, and dude was sweating bullets ! :)
Ill Repute was pretty lightning fast for the time also, but not as fast as
Stalag 13 (who I believe opened the show) were excellent, but not nearly
as fast as the other bands :)
Anyway, D.R.I. holds a big place in my heart, always one of my favorites !
Sound on these recordings are really decent !
Going to see D.R.I. on November 11th in L.A., with Excel and some other
great bands !
Saw them with Excel at The Palace in Hollywood back in 89', think I
still feel the bruises from that night at times :)
Was drunk as fuck, going against the grain in a huge slam of over 100
We used to call that suicide slamming back in the day :)
Was so drunk didn't feel it that night, but for the next 3 weeks was
dealing with bruises and pain all over my body.
Was fearless back then in the pit, but I paid for it ! :)
Ok, sorry for the long winded post, just wanted to share this gem I found
on You Tube with anyone and everyone that loves D.R.I. !

Finally found the artwork for the compilation I made in 1989 !
Never found the cassette itself, but was able to piece together the
whole comp in it's original form, using the same versions of the songs
that were on the tape, but from MP3's.
I did the artwork, and put the whole thing together way back when.
I wanted to release it, the unfortunate part was that Dischord Records
would not let me use the Minor Threat song :(
Out of frustration, I just basically gave them away as a mixtape, or
as they referred to back in the 80's as car tapes (or tapes for long trips) :)
I had already ripped the tapes, so eliminating the Minor Threat song
would have been a hassle !
Anyway, if you love 80's Hardcore, you'll love this rager !!!!!

Totally obscure one to me !
My good bud Mistah (from the OC) sent me a request to look for
this old one.
Took me a few to find it, but as soon as I added umlauts, it appeared :)
Ripping good aggressive HC, with a little bit of melodic sing along !
Mistah always sends me obscure requests, that dude totally knows what's
Always gotta give mad respect to the younger generation who know half as
much as I do, and send requests that no kids today have a clue about !
Mistah sent me a couple more that I still need to edit, which i'll put up
Much love and respect to my good friend !

Well i'm back folks !!!!!
Been a year and a half since I did my final show on Core Of
Destruction Radio, which was sad, cause the station went offline
for a while.
Website was still there, but the radio part was gone.
Huge thanks to Jerry "Lizardmessiah" Woods for keeping the station
going all these years, and for coming up with a way to revive the radio
waves of C.O.D. !
He's the man, without him there would be no Core Of Destruction !
Also big thanks to Scott from Jethro Skull for fixing my show banner !
Want to give a shout out to Frank Mendez (photographer at most of the
L.A. PV/Grind/HC gigs), who asked me to mention the Benefit Show
tonight at 5 Star Bar in Los Angeles.
Benefit is for Jorge Castillo, one of the original members of Brujeria,
who is fighting cancer right now.
Please come out and support Jorge and the scene tonight, is an important
and much needed cause !!!!!
Too many great musicians are dying too young, please support the fight
against cancer !
Show is up for download now !
Had to upload the show in 2 parts, so everyone could grab it.
First show back, enjoy !
Thank you to all the people that support Core Of Destruction Radio,
and the worldwide Punk/Hardcore scenes !
You are the reason we keep the spirit of Hardcore alive !!!!!

Band my friend Shawn Kessler requested me to search for recently.
Rare LP from 1985 Pennsylvania band that I vaguely remember
hearing the name of in the past.
After searching for the last week, somehow found someone on my
music program that had ripped the LP.
Cool Punk/Hardcore sound, with a few real short songs in there :)
Glad I was able to track this down, getting harder to find some of
those rare old gems these days.
I definitely recommend this one, especially for those old schoolers
like me !

I can't say enough good things about Dudman, they just absolutely
From hardcore to fastcore to powerviolence and grind, they do it all !

Schizos - Crrrest The Album (Everything There Is !) (2017) Simi Valley-Ventura, California (Punk band from 1979)
Nardcore/Slimey Valley band The Schizos existed for a few months
in 1979 and split up before any recordings were issued. Let it be known
that all of these tapes have also been given to the band, who are planning
on having the legendary Geza X sprinkle his fairy dust on them for
eventual vinyl and cd release. What you have here are ALL of the raw
and unadorned tapes (the only thing that has been done is a few click
and pop removals and overall sound level boosting - other than that:
nothing whatsoever has been done to alter the sound of these 4 tapes).
So if you are interested you'll want this download as well as the proper
release, once that is issued. Now know this: The Schizos are punk in a
similar way that The Simpletones were punk. They are NOT punk as in
Black Flag or The Germs. So just be aware of that before you download
this. What is included here you ask? Well... you'll notice 4 links. Link #1
is the 1979 Studio Demo as well as all artwork and info. Link #2 is a
complete rehearsal (with bass guitar) from Ron's house in Simi Valley in
Jan. of 1979. Link #3 is a full show from the Rock Corporation in Van
Nuys from 2/7/79'. Finally Link #4 is the legendary complete show from the
Other Masque on 2/16/79 when they opened for The Cramps as a last second
fill in for the cancelled opening act. Again: ALL info and artwork is
included in the first link. This free download has been made available to
you courtesy of the free digital download label "You don't work, you
don't help clean, you don't contribute anything to the household
whatsoever. All you ever do is lay around your filthy room all day and
night and listen to those GODDAMN RECORDS". As far as I know
this is EVERYTHING that exists by the band. Enjoy it.
Ripped, edited & compiled by oldschoolmike & Mike Fey.
Big big thanks and respect to Shawn Kessler (Underground4themasses)
for changing The Other Masque set from mono to stereo. Sounds a world
Thanks a million Shawn !!!!!
Was great fun doing this one ! Had some difficult technical issues, but all
turned out better than I could have imagined !
