Lulu's:

Whenever you think of US hardcore, contemporary or other, the regular offenders come to mind – New York, Boston, Chicago, parts of California…I doubt you’ve given Pittsburgh any time of day. This compilation contains bands from the last decade that have burst out of Pittsburgh, their huge sound ripping through international waters, including HEAVY DISCIPLE, LOOSE NUKES, WHITE STAINS and S.L.I.P. A neighbouring city to Cleveland at two hours drive away, their kinsmanship is evident not only in sound but the goofy and snotty artwork seen on the cover as well as the zine provided in place of an insert.

Released in limited amount through Cruel Noise Records, who also does a record store in Pittsburgh and a punk radio show which you can find online (with currently over 200 episodes!)

The story behind the title of this record; Pittsburgh has a punk fest weekend called “Skull Fest” that’s happened almost every year from the last decade, organised by a few locals including Jimmy (from EEL and ANNIHILATION TIME amongst others) and John (who runs “Cruel Noise” label and also plays in a bunch of bands, including LEIBESTOD an DRUG SWEAT). The sound behind the fest was mostly crust, raw punk and hardcore. Punx from all over would come for the fest and end up moving there under the presumption that that weekend defined a punk life in Pittsburgh (like other cities that have a cool punk fest). Instead, it just diluting the scene with people that contributed nothing to the scene but complaints. The local punks there resented it and so “Welcome to Pittsburgh. Don’t move here”.

CRUEL NOISE RECORDS:

Compiltaion of Pittsburgh's current heavy hitters. Tracks from: Heavy Discipline, Peace Talks, Rat Nip, De Rodillas, AND MORE!
