Stains- self titled LP
Here is the superb Stains self titled LP from 1983.
The band formed in the late 70s. I found this piece of band history... "Back in 1980, the East L.A. punk scene was constantly being overshadowed by the already established strongholds in Hollywood and the South Bay. Recognizing the need for a place to call their own, a couple of members of Los Illegals created The Vex. Located on the second floor of an arts center at the corner of Brooklyn and Gage, The Vex became the home to several bands, including Los Illegals, The Brat, The Odd Squad, Thee Undertakers and The Stains. Black Flag's Greg Ginn took a liking to The Stains and decided to release their full length debut on SST Records. Released in 1983, "The Stains" (SST 010) is one of the true undiscovered gems of the SST catalog. Recorded at Media Access Studios by Spot, this record spits forth a venom that is impossible to ignore".
SST is retarded. You can go to any record store and find any one of those terrible piece of shit instrumental Black Flag records but this elusive gem remains out of print for years. Oh well. Here it is. Enjoy the music!
