There's a quick skip at 0:20s in "Dogs" by Christian Death and a few cracks during the song, sorry about that but it's been played a bit too often at parties I guess, so...

Released in 1981 on Bemisbrain Records (and reissued in ’97 by Time Bomb Recordings), 'Hell Comes To Your House' is an absolutely flawless album. Boasting contributions from the greatest names in the then-flourishing American West Coast Deathrock scene (Christian Death, 45 Grave, Super Heroines, the somewhat-out-of-place Social Distortion and Red Cross), this compilation remains essential listening for adventurous music fans 30 years after its original release.
Highlights: Social Distortion’s "Lude Boy" and "Telling Them" show that the band’s ability to crank out extraordinary anthems was in place even at this early stage of their career, while an equally wet-behind-the-ears Redd Kross (known as Red Cross here) whine and snarl their way through a snot-nosed rendition of The New York Dolls’ "Puss ‘N’ Boots". Armed with a killer guitar sound, great production and just the right amount of incomprehensible singing, Long Beach’s Modern Warfare leave their mark with "Out Of My Head" and "Street Fightin’ Man", while the bass-heavy thump of Secret Hate’s "Deception" makes one wonder what Fear would have sounded like on record if Flea hadn’t jumped Lee Ving’s ship for the Chili Peppers. The Conservatives offer three fast slabs of Circle Jerks-meets-Jack Grisham California hardcore, while 100 Flowers (formerly known as minimalistic punks The Urinals) go all Joy Division on us with the dirgey "Reject Yourself". Proving that the West Coast underground scene was about art as much as it was about chaos, Rhino 39 make "Marry It" a memorable experience through quirky musicianship and offbeat singing. Of course, 'Hell Comes To Your House' is best remembered these days as the debut of a teenaged Rozz Williams. In a handful of minutes, Christian Death’s "Dogs" simultaneously establishes Williams as a young lyrical genius and sets the foundation for the entire American Goth scene of the 1980s. ~Joel Gausten @LouderThanWar
Fameuse compile mêlant le punk au deathrock d'une Californie alors en pleine effervescence, c'est un délice épicé à se mettre sous la dent sans retenue pendant une soirée entre amis.
Cela explique d'ailleurs un skip et quelques craquements pendant le morceau de Christian Death, mais tout passe après quelques verres, pas vrai?
L'enfer c'est les autres, et tu les as ramenés chez toi ce soir!
Same Rip specs as usual, now you know I'm evil!
