The Gunga Dins - Medio-Core! CD

The Gunga Dins! were a band out of IL in the 90's. I picked this up at megatronix in york, not knowing what it was. I took it home and listened to it and was surprised to hear some really good sloppy pop punk. Next time I went back to Megatronix, I found another copy for 99 cents so I picked it up. I think this was their only pop punk release. I also have a 7" by this band and its some really good thrashcore. I believe after this, they started playing all thrash. This CD is really hard to find so if you want a copy, I have an extra I can sell for $1 or we can trade!

V/A - Better Than Sevens CD

I dont Remember where I got this from. I think I bought this at a commercials show, but like I said, I dont remember. Its a really good comp with punk, ska and a lot of pop punk. I like how each band does 3 or 4 songs. You get a good idea of what the band sounds like. I wish Reinforcement Records was still around. They put out some great releases.

PRESSING INFO: Released in 1999 on Reinforcement Records. You can still get it over at interpunk from a few bucks.

Fat Nick's Fish - Promo

I saw this band at the old 4th street station in Gettysburg. I loved that place. It was sooo much fun. They describe themselves as "grind violence". I would Describe them as thrashcore. 4 songs that go through pretty quick. If memory serves me right, they were from York or red lion PA

PRESSING INFO: I think this was their only release. There was talks about a full length but i don't believe it was ever released. Less than 50 were probably made of this.

1. Waste My Time
2. Fat
3. Shit Doesn't Just Happen
4. Salad Is Murder
