Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa” LP

The second album by Los Angele’s Angry Samoans (or the first full length album if youre going to be pedantic about Inside My Brain from 1980 being more of a 12″ EP/mini-LP). Originally released in 1982, Back From Samoa is a classic of early American hardcore punk. Leaning towards a more traditional psyche/garage rock influence, and with less of the hardcore speed and energy that was emerging in other American cities during the early ’80s, however, it remains way ahead of it’s time in terms of the pop-punk hooks and irreverant, naughty-boy attitude in light of the consequent US punk of the next decades (Descendents, No FX, Screaching Weasel etc.). Mischievous fun with a low-brow incorrectness that nowadays requires a little forgiving tolerance (what the fuck do we do with a track like “Homo-sexual”??)  – nonetheless, a very significant historical artifact of past-punk.
