Twenty Years of Dischord

  1. Anyone else gotten it? I just picked it up today with Punk Planet.

    Pretty damn cool, its not often that a institution like Dischord lasts so long and plenty of quality bands too. I can actually feel the energy of their shows translated through the tracks, its like a nostalgia trip back to when punk really was punk without all the mini-genres, elitist bickering and marketing. Back when it was just about volume and late nights at the KoC hall.
    The booklet alone is awesome too! Definately worth a look. It's not goin' to be very far from my CD player for a while.
  2. what's all on it? I assume its a comp with a bunch of bands from Dischord? Recently I've been getting into Hoover...pretty good group. Maybe I'll pick this one up.
  3. Its got two discs with 50 songs each. One song for each band on Dischord, a nice sort of overview of their catalogue. In addition, there's a booklet with a brief history, overview and lineup of each band. There's also a 3rd disc with a bunch of rare and unreleased tracks. Lots of great pics, highly reccomend it.
