For The Dils fans, finally the entirety of the band's studio tracks will be available for all to enjoy. 'Class War' and 'Mr. Big' come from their Dangerhouse release, 'Sound Of The Rain' (excellent acoustic version), 'It's Not Worth It' and 'Red Rockers' come from Made In Canada double 7' and 'Blow Up' is from their first demo, recorded in the Spring of 1977. The rest are Live tracks. This album is an essential for fans of '70s punk and, with the combination of the Bacchus release 'Class War' will give you a complete Dils collection.
The band formed in 1976 or 77, consisted of Chip and Tony Kinman and whatever drummer they had at the moment, a punk rock fairy tale says that the Dils' first vocalist, Jeff Scott, as well as the band's first drummer, died in a fiery automobile crash...They were very vocally political, they seemed to split their time between SF (also home of the Avengers and Crime) and Los Angeles (home to the Weirdos, the Bags, X), they released three 7"s, two of which are essential.They split in 1980 or 1981 and the Kinman brothers went on to Rank and File,then Blackbird, they were FUCKING GREAT.

The Dils were one of the first (if not the first) west coast bands to tour across the country. Sure, a couple LA and SF bands flew out to New York in '78 and '79, but The Dils set up a tour all the way across Canada and the upper midwest, ending in a dingy New York club called Hurrah's, 3300 miles later. Before DOA and Black Flag (but after the Ramones) The Dils were doing it, spending hours in a sweatbox of a van to play for thirty or forty minutes in a strange town for next-to-nothing, then getting back in the van to do it again.
The Dils played to audiences that would later become the Big Boys, the Dicks, MDC, Solger, the Fartz, and the Wipers. They provided crucial inspiration for bands to get out there and tour. They showed that it could be done, and their immortality has shown that it should be done.
Bacchus Archives nous donne l'occasion, avec son autre sortie 'Class War', d'écouter la totalité des enregistrements de ce groupe haut en couleurs qui, hormis quelques 7'', n'a jamais édité un véritable album. Que c'en est navrant, mais pas une exception dans le domaine...
Ne vous y trompez pas, The Dils c'est du punk rock de première classe, mais écoutez plutôt et si la sauce prend pas c'est que vous êtes périmés avant l'heure!
EAC extracted, 224~320kbs Mp3 encoded + tags, time to blow up and get new kicks!
