The Repos - 2003-2008 Discography
It's rare that i'll post newer music on this blog, especially newer hardcore. I haven't really kept up on the current scene, and aside from a handful of great bands like Sex Vid, Warkrime, Ciril, Walls and a few others, i honestly have no interest in current hardcore. The Repos are my biggest exception though. I loved this stuff from the first second i heard it. The Repos were a Chicago band from 2003-08, and played a vicious style of hardcore clearly inspired by the likes of Septic Death, Infest, early Jerry's Kids, Poison Idea, and of course Youth of Today (The Repos last album was a cover of the entire Youth of Today album "We're Not In This Alone" from 1988). This is great no-bullshit hardcore with not many songs clocking in over 30 seconds. As Infest would say, they put the "hard back in the core". This is their complete vinyl discography (all out of print now), including their 2003 demo and a recording of their final show, recorded March 29, 2008. Thanks to the Crooked Edge blog for that one. This collection is 76 tracks, great sound. Enjoy.
