Keats Rides a Harley
"Featuring some of the leading early '80s American punk and post-punk bands, Keats Rides a Harley came into existence in 1981 with a clear reason: to document the nascent scene in Southern California that had been neglected up to that point. Assembled under the artistic direction of 100 Flowers (aka Urinals) and producer Vitus Matare (The Last), the original nine cuts display a unique cohesion that demonstrate there was more to punk at the time than hardcore. For the reissue, the nine original tracks have been remastered and augmented by one vintage additional song each by the participating artists. It's twice as much Keats as the world has ever heard before, with most of the tracks surfacing for the first time on this CD." Artists: Earwigs, Toxic Shock, S Squad, Gun Club, Meat Puppets, The Leaving Trains, Tunneltones, Human Hands, 100 Flowers, Danny and the Doorknobs, Arrow Book Club, Vidiots, and Phil Bedel.
