I would still recommend Fresh Fruit as the first album for a newb, though, because it's, y'know, the band's first album.


Plastic Surgery Disasters sucked. It was annoying garbage. Most of that album sounds like the Animaniacs tried to make a punk record.

edit: also In God We Trust, Inc. > PSD

Fresh Fruit always was and always will be their best album. I wouldn't say PSD sucks, but it isn't nearly as good. Fresh Fruit is one of my faves eva.

PSD is an underrated album. Better than "Frankenchrist" and "Bedtime for Democracy" and almost close to "Fresh Fruit....". Better than "In God We Trust, Inc."... that is a great breakneck style EP in the style of DC hardcore at the time... and "We've Got A Bigger Problem Now" is my favorite version of Uber Alles.... but on the whole, "Plastic..." beats it.

"Forest Fire", "Moon Over Marin", "Halloween" and "Riot" are some of DK's best songs. Those alone top IGWT..

My second favorite DK album is probably Bedtime for Democracy. It's got a real nihilistic feel to it, considering the band would soon implode.

I love the way it criticizes the punk scene at the time as well. They did it without it being tiresome. Probably the biggest problem with the album is sheer number of songs makes a lot of them seem like filler.

In fact, even though I like PSD a lot, I like Fresh Fruit, In God We Trust, and Bedtime better.

Give Me Convience.. is a great compilation as well. Worth owning just for "Pull My Strings", "Too Drunk to Fu*k" and "Police Truck".

Would love to see the video for "Pull My Strings", some of the impact is lost without the video to go with it, not much, but some.

"Pull My Strings" is one of the best attacks on mainstream pop culture.

Give Frankenchrist another listen. It's almost my favorite DK album.

Plastic Surgery Disasters tops the list.

I like Frankenchrist... it just sticks out like a sore thumb amongst their work to me though... which is not a band thing, i like that they can try something new and not repeat themselves... shows more signs of a group trying to evolve and throw listeners off with each album. Black Flag would do that as well.

Frankenchrist is probably my least favorite, but still a good listen from time to time.

Right, thought I might as well share stuff here - here's some bands I've seen locally recently who are worth mentioning!

The Murderburgers - the best Pop-punk I've heard out of Europe, and they have a live show to match it (well, surpass it)

http://www.myspace.com/themurderburgers


Pianosa
- Saw them recently, they put on an intense-as-**** live show. Hardcore in the vein of Minor Threat and F-Minus. They just released a free release, which you can check here:

http://leporkrecords.com/2011/06/06/


Black Volvo - Dutch Punk Rock, they were pretty good live. Their recordings aren't quite as good, but worth a listen.

http://www.myspace.com/blackvolvo


Iron Chic - American gruff melodic punk ala Latterman and Lawrence Arms - I couldn't catch them (they played a Glasgow show which I couldn't get to) but their free-to-download album was brilliant (which you can download for free on their 'bandcamp' page!

http://ironchic.bandcamp.com/album/not-like-this


Grand Hotel Paradox - a miiinor bit of self-promotion here; this is a band I started briefly, but left when I moved to Edinburgh. They released a 4-song release which is absolutely awesome, that I'm very very impressed with, so thought it was worth sharing!

http://grandhotelparadox.bandcamp.com/


Check it out! I was considering starting a new thread along the lines of "local bands you see and want to share" but I thought the Punk Recommendations thread will do, what do you think?

I'd say use this thread or the local scene thread http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...32#post27108832

Someone should recommend punk that I can put on a cassette and play in a boombox while playing basketball.
