Bastards - You Didn't Give A Damn About The Exploding Man Because You Killed Him

Oh cool. No one's uploaded this.

I'm so thankful for hardcore because it encouraged several great bands to up the ante. Of course, there's a fine line between great shitnoise with a real grasp of compelling rhythm and riffs and, well, just shit.

Bastards were on the correct side of that line for me. They were from Germany, and, to quote Vince, you know the Germans always make great stuff. Member or members went on to form [the seriously great] Janitor Joe and [the seriously crappy] Gnomes of Zurich.

I've used this track to peel paint off of things.

And you can hear the rest here.
