i listened to double ncikels on the dime, well its not what i was expecting. i was expecting something along the lines of black flag, but this band arent really the same at all. they're funky as fuck. the thing that struck me most is the rhythm section, which is really awesome.

Its different, but iliked this, they seem a real talented band.

UPDATE: Ive fallen totally in love with this album, theres not a bad song on it, saying something considering theres 43 songs on the album. the bassist is amazing, the guitarist has some amazing sh'it and the drummers pretty damn good too. I've never heard a punk album this diverse.

Ive downloaded Paranoid Time and What Makes a Man start Fires as well now, i'll be listening to them soon. this band are fast becoming one of my favorites

Wow, i cant believe i didnt check this band out before now. I can't praise Double Nickels on the Dime enough. And its another awesome band to add to sst's roster, as well as descendents, bad brains and black flag.

SST was hands down the best rock label of the 80's.

I was reading up on SST there just now, its pretty interesting stuff. Theres some bands i'll need to check out who were on sst. Such as husker du, who i've never heard before. Hopefully theyre as awesome as Minutemen are turning out to be.

Husker Du and the Meat Puppets are possibly two of the greatest bands of all time. I love the Minutemen, but Zen Arcade beasts the shit out of Double Nickels...
