Germs – “(MIA) The Complete Anthology” Double LP
The long overdue discography, includes the entire recorded catalog of L.A’s hardcore punk legends: The first album, from 1979, (GI); the What We Do Is Secret EP from 1981; the debut 7″from 1977, Forming; the Lexicon Devil 7″ of ’78. Classic first generation American punk; along with D.O.A. the Dead Kennedys and Black Flag, the Germs laid down the foundations for future hardcore. Making the (GI) album one of the true cultural landmarks in the history of music (hey, and, of course, it features the track “Land Of Treason”!). Enough said. 31 tracks, all re-mastered from the original analog tapes. Includes double-sided insert with liner notes, photos, credits and lyrics.
