2002 release. "37 tracks of madness from this 'Killed By Death' band. In 1981, The Absentees released only 200 copies of their legendary Tryin' To Mess With Me single which is now one of the most sought after early California punk singles of all time! This CD is the first to compile all their official releases, demos, and a bonus live track! CD comes with a 12 page booklet loaded with band history and lyrics! Demented lyrics with crazed vocals from a very pissed Rocco Roll and crew. These guys are like a missing link between late 70's punk and the early hardcore of the 80's. Fast, snotty, and out for revenge! 13 of the songs are from their early period from 1979-1981, and the rest are from rare reunion demos and limited releases. (Tracks 1,2 were recorded in 1980, tracks 3-12 were recorded in 1981, tracks 13-18 were recorded in 1999, tracks 19-36 were recorded in 2000, and track 37 was recorded live on 2-3-79)."
