The Absentees: 1981 Punk Faves 7"

UG Records


Reissue of this shit-rare Killed by Death punk single from 1981, albeit with a different mix than the original (and pressed on red vinyl to boot). It's easy to see why originals of this go for several hundred bucks as it pretty much hits all of the key points of the Killed by Death sound... it's raw, kinda catchy, borderline inept, yet at the same time completely infectious. There's not much to say besides that... this is pretty much top-shelf KBD punk, and these recently-found dead stock copies are probably your last chance to grab even the reissue of this gem.
