Futurismo Records to release hardcore punk album compiled by Henry Rollins

Get ready to blast the wax from your lug 'oles thanks to SUBURBAN ANNIHILATION The California Hardcore Explosion / From The City To The Beach: 1978-1983.

Futurismo Records are releasing a fantastic hardcore punk compilation on February 24th. Entitled SUBURBAN ANNIHILATION: The California Hardcore Explosion / From The City To The Beach: 1978-1983 the Henry Rollins compiled record includes tracks by  Adolescents, Agent Orange, Dead Kennedys, Suicidal Tendencies, T.S.O.L Circle Jerks, Wasted Youth, Germs and many more.

Suburban Annihilation takes you from the major cities, to the coastal towns, to the SoCal suburbs, showcasing some the most important bands of the West Coast. Blasting off with the Adolescents ‘I Hate Children’, it heads from the year zero of Middle Class’s ‘Out Of Vogue’ to the surf punk of Agent Orange’s ‘Bloodstains’, from the blues tinged outlaw of The Gun Club’s ‘She’s Like Heroin to Me’ to the classic anti-anthems: ‘Live Fast Die Young’ by the Circle Jerks, lifted from their seminal Group Sex album, and the hardcore staple ‘California Über Alles’ by the Dead Kennedys. Also present are so many other bands integral to the era: T.S.O.L, Wasted Youth, Germs, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies, Negative Trend, Flipper and many more.

Though the music was designed to repel, this historical document has been lovingly designed to remind us that this genre created some of the most immediate and acutely- realised music ever produced. Making this collection of choice cuts essential for long- time fans of hardcore and punk, just as those new and inquisitive about one of the most angry and pissed off genres to have given birth in America.

This 2xLP comes in a choice of limited edition coloured vinyl, it has a tracklist co- curated by Henry Rollins, it contains liner notes by Lisa Fancher of Frontier, a bio by award winning author Benjamin Myers, and contains a booklet featuring an array of images by the legendary punk photographer Edward Colver.

Suburban Annihilation is out Feb 24th.
