First Strike: 10 Bands, 50 Songs, 1983 U.S. Hardcore (Enterruption)

By: Jeb Branin

When I first discovered that the best of the BCT tape compilations were going to be re-released on CD (and some vinyl), this is one of the ones I was the most excited to get. Not only because "First Strike" was one of my favorites from the series (you never forget your first time) but because the compilers have done an excellent job of picking the best from various BCT projects, merging them into what are essentially new compilations and sweetening the whole deal with a handful of gems that were not included on the original BCT releases because they were divided/buried on other obscure releases of the day or simply never released. It amazes me that most of the songs on this CD are still raging and extreme 20 years later when the ante for such things has been raised to heights inconceivable in the early 80s. Includes bands like CLITBOYS, VIOLATION, FUTURE RUINS, VATICAN COMMANDOS, MR. EPP, EAT THE RICH and THE ACCUSED.
