"Has 2 trax those 2 great albums on Crypt don't have: 'I Stand Alone' and 'Her Name Was Jane'. I haven't heard those two songs. Soon as I'm not lazy enough to hit the Listen button I will have sampled them. If you have the S... Street CD and the Pink Album Plus CD then you have, from what I can see, everything available by the PAGANS except these 2 songs on this CD.
Meanwhile, this stuff rocks, perfectly. I wish the PAGANS were better known. They somehow seem to have slipped under most of the radar screen, maybe cuz their 4 or so 7" records went out of print probably by 1980. They had most or all of them repressed in 1987 but not many copies, like 800 each.
They had Buried Alive and Street Where Nobody Lives and Pink Album LPs all get released apparently in the 80's gathering together their 7" studio recordings and scattered other songs.
The S... Street CD and Pink Album Plus CD have a few extra demo or other studio trax including a 1982 radio broadcast of a few songs on the Pink Album Plus. Both CD's also then have about 10 live trax, none of which is particularly amazing but are worth having because this band never released an album, only comps of their 7"s.
Musically if you hear them, particularly their best songs, which is most of the songs on the 7"s, you'll see they're really worth hearing, that is, assuming you like punk. Possibly America's finest punk (not hardcore) band ever. Really. firstname.lastname@example.org"
