Redd Kross - Switchblade Sister
The title track of the Switchblade Sister, one of the band's greatest compositions and a staple of its live set for many years to follow, contained the lyric "swinging like a new phaseshifter". The sounds on the Switchblade Sister would bridge the gap from the fuzzy bubblegum of its major-label debut Third Eye, and the hyper-confident after school power pop of its next album Phaseshifter; the title most likely lifted from the aforementioned lyric.
Every track on this recording is a gem, a fine example of a band that reached full speed on Neurotica and never stopped running. Switchblade Sister is absolutely essential for any fan of Redd Kross. ~Terrance Miles @AllMusic

Tar Babies - Death Trip
Following its release, the group disbanded permanently. Dan Bitney moved to Chicago and joined the seminal post-rock combo Tortoise as a percussionist and effects manipulator, also playing with Isotope 217 and several other local projects. Pope and Davies later reunited as the Bar Tabbies for local gigs, and Davies' son Jesse Collins-Davies was also a member of the preteen hardcore band Old Skull. Bucky Pope's current band (circa 2014) is Negative Example. ~Steve Huey @AllMusic

Black Market Baby - Potential Suicide
Decraneo - Sacrilegio
Punk Rock from Mallorca, Spain. Ripping female vocals added to catchy and furious 70s punk rock riffs with hardcore urgency.
This is their latest effort, after the 2011 EP and their ripping album from 2013.
If you like good old spanish punk rock bands such as Ultimo Resorte, more recent stuff as Sudor or even Los Angeles Bags, this 4 tracks EP's for you!
Les ingrédients de base sont toujours les mêmes: punk 77, un peu rock 'n' roll, hardcore, et la voix de Mary toujours hargneuse à souhait.
Decraneo - Heil Vaticano!
You can tell that there is fun in it, life, and enthusiasm. The pissed-off voice of the singer Maria makes it all a butt kicker. All lyrics are in Spanish, which is also cool, although I don't get shit, ha ha.
Balançant une sorte de punk 77 rapide mâtiné de hardcore 80' avec des guitares et paroles incisives, ce EP s'affiche déjà très prometteur. La voix agressive de Maria associée aux riffs incendiaires de Santi et aux rythmes nerveux de Chano rendent décérébré et c'est tout ce qu'on demandait. D'autant que je pipe rien aux paroles, et c'est tant pis!

All tracks recorded @ CD Studios, Jag Studios & Chicago Recording Company.
Third in this well-known punk series, this is much less thrash-oriented than Vol. 2 if nowhere near as great as Vol. 1. D.I. punk up Sweet's 1973 glam hit "Ballroom Blitz" à la Damned and Rezillos versions, only with new lyrics. Both their tracks here blow away their recent LP, sounding much more like the band they're rooted in... Adolescents! Speaking of Adolescents, they on the other hand butcher, meaning slaughter, the Kinks' 1964 classic "All Day and All of the Night," making us appreciate the Stranglers' wonderful version all the more. Real Naked Raygun fans will be glad to get the unreleased elsewhere "Rocks of Sweden"; surf Raygun? You got it, and you'll want it. And there's more good stuff from the strange bedfellows of those wacky punk boys Adrenalin O.D., West Coast rap/funk/Beastie punks Doggy Style, '70s glam thrash from White Flag, and the usual yucks from Mojo Nixon. The rest fails to register, but still that's pretty good for compilations, ain't it? It sure is. ~Jack Rabid @AllMusic.com
