Before 45 Grave, there was... the CONSUMERS
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best forgotten bands ever. Fans of punk and 45 Grave will really be into this. Consumers is a punkier version of 45 Grave AUTOPSY. A lot of the songs on this album were re-recorded later (with Dinah Cancer) for AUTOPSY.
All My Friends Are Dead is their only album. Don't be fooled by the other "consumers", though they share the same name, they're not the same band.
Track list:
Teen Love Song
Anti, Anti, Anti
Concerned Citizen
Your Problem
Ballad to the Son of Sam
My Type
Dream Hits
Get Out
Media Ogre
Punk Church"
AMAZING '77 punk rock nugget
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an INSANE artifact! Recorded in 1977 in Phoenix, AZ and not released until 2002. Buzzsaw guitars that sound like nothing else. Some of the meanest disposition lyrics you've ever heard. Sounds like a cross between The Damned and The Misfits. Some of it is so fast it's astounding that it actually pre-dates hardcore. Just incredible! If you want to hear the real deal then check this out."

"The Consumers were the first hardcore band ever and they were from Phoenix Arizona. Their album, All My Friends are Dead, is a masterpiece and was recorded way back in 1977. That same year the first punk albums came out from bands like Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned, Dead Boys, Saints etc. The speed and the power of the Consumers made all those bands sound too slow. The songs of the Consumers were short, fast, rough, loud, powerful, melodic and catchy too (somewhere between the Germs and the Misfits). They were the first band that played really fast and loud even for the hardcore standards of the early eighties. This is a classic record with many hits. It's a fun and entertaining album full of crazy energy. Anyone who listens to hardcore or punk should own this amazing album, as a great document from one of the best and most talented bands."
