V/A NUKE YOUR DINK – NEVADA HARDCORE SAMPLER E.P.- 7″ Comp (Positive Force, USA, 1984)

nukeyourdink_frontnukeyourdrink_backnukeyourdink_innerI originally wanted the first BCT comp tape, «First Strike», to be the next post on this blog. I had already begun editing the rip, when I started googling some background info. Well, as it seems, the tape was re-released on CD a while ago on the excellent Enterruption label outta San Francisco.
So here we go with a 7″ comp that can’t really compete with «First Strike». Sure, «Nuke your Drink» draws a lot of charme from the fact it’s so pisspoorly produced, like all Positive Force releases of that time. In fact, that’s what gives this extra credit for being one of the shittiest sounding records ever released.

It starts off with one of the forefathers of Boyscout-ism in HC, 7 SECONDS. I sometimes seriously wonder how I could have been so deeply into this band. Seriously, I can’t listen to these posi-bands anymore, unless I’m totally wasted. But maybe that’s what the purpose of straightedge and posi-bands always was: You’d play these songs when you were stinking drunk, the bands knew that, and hoped for a subliminal effect on the drinkers’ subconsciousness. It would sink in while the listeners drink. Drink to sink, you know. I mean, why would a sober person and one that never drinks feel the urge to listen to music that tells him not to do what he wouldn’t do anyway? Oh well, then we get SUBTERFUGE with “Legal who?”, a wonderful midtempo song with a fast bass and a funny intro. NO DEAL blast off with great energy. URBAN ASSAULT would totally shred, but the song has the worst sound on this comp. JACKSHIT have a great fast song, much in the vein of the band’s one and only EP. THE REMAINS show a strong UK-Oi-influence which I could do without. Whenever I hear this song, I already wish it was over. THE EXPELLED (nope, not the british band) are more down my alley, Mongo-HC of the good sort. THE YOBS close this EP with what sounds like sound compared to the shoebox recordings of the other bands and the annoying singer rules. Almost of SAVAGE CIRCLE quality, if you ask me.

PS: I misread the title for many many years. I kept reading «Nuke your Drink», because I thought it could be some anti-nukes meets straightedge statement. Haha. Now I learn that Dink means Double income, no kids. Does Dink also mean like dick or something? Looking at the back cover could make one think so, haha. But then again, what sense would it make to (or not to) nuke one’s dick? And could you nuke a dick alone, at all? Wouldn’t the rest of the man be nuked too? Or was there talk of some supersmall anti-dick-nukes? So many questions.

URBAN ASSAULT: High Fiend.mp3
JACKSHIT: Foreign Aid.mp3

THE YOBS: Armageddon.mp3

    Yes, this ep would have been better if it had a better quality recording. I remember wanting to hear this obscure ep real bad and was disappointed at the shitty sound quality. The best song on here is “legal aid” by Jackshit and too bad we can barely hear it!

    Hi Erich, any chance you could post Chaotic Dischord’s Fuck the World EP if you have it? I can’t find a quality rip anywhere.

  11. So why even bother and still ask me to post some stuff, sweetheart? If you want to hear this and that, go and buy it, kid. And then, when you have your 30 “oldschool records” together, you can start and publish your own blog, which, of course, will be much better than mine. Go ahead!

    Wow, I don’t remember this record sounding this bad. I guess I wasn’t very discerning in my youth. Did Urban Assault ever do their own 7″ or LP? I remember liking their song on (I think) Party Or Go Home. I’m assuming this is the Tahoe one (aren’t there like 4 U.A.s) since this is a “Nevada Hardcore Sampler”.

  20. I enjoy the writing a lot more then the actual comp. Ehh wait there’s some good shit here: Jackshit, Expelled, Yobs and 7 Seconds. I lost interest in 7 Seconds as soon as I heard The Crew. What a lame effort.

    Yeah, The Crew really sucks, i mean, the songs are good and all, but the fucking SAME drum beat all over… it’s like they have hired the drummer from intense mutilation to play session drums on the record.

    Best 7 Seconds EVER (my opinion, that doesn’t mean shit): their 2 songs on the Cleanse the Bacteria compilation. Fuckin A, I say (the lyrics are cheeeeesy though “We’re gonna fight” hahaha)

  22. I must admit that I enjoyed myself quite a bit when I put on “The Crew” this afternoon. Sure, it’s a dumb record in a way, but you can’t deny the power it has. It’s like some kind of agitation record you could use in nursery homes.

    I like everything 7 Seconds did up to and including New Wind. Then again I guess I just have a high tolerance level for this kind of thing. I did earn my merit badge in Posicore when I was in the Cub Scouts.

    I happen to still like 7 Seconds. As for these assholes that always talk stupid shit about Erich…why do they waste their time??? I always talk stupid shit, but never towards a man that is giving us music that maybe we have never heard before. Thanks Erich!! Even if some of it is lame metal…hahahaha 🙂

    The unreleased 7 Seconds – United We Stand record was really good.

    eddie, I agree with you with that 7 SECONDS unreleased´83 material. My favourite stuff by them.

    I second the call for a Sodom demo.
    And perhaps Tormentor/Kreator as well!

  29. Tom Angelripper (I think it was him, or was it Grave Ventilator?) generously sent me both Sodom demos after I had sent him some sort of a stupid Hellhammer fanboy letter, saying Hellhammer would blow Sodom out of the water and shit like that. Haha, he was such a nice chap. Unfortunately, I used both tapes as blank tapes to record walkman compilations over them, so I’m afraid I cannot post any Sodom. Would love to hear those again very much, though. I always thought of sodom as a joke band, but still, I’d love to hear those tapes again. Tormentor / Kreator: Horrible, horrible band.

    PS: Never heard the 83 LP by 7 Seconds and didn’t know this was floating around. I have a bootleg 7″ with some demo stuff, called “3 cohrds politics” or something – are these songs from that LP? Where can I hear the LP?

    “If we can walk together, why can’t we rock together?” Can’t you feel the love and unity in their songs? I do, and it sends chills up my spine!

    About 7Seconds – the ’83 material was released in 1991 as “Old School” LP

    There’s also a new (?) 7 Seconds LP with all three of the demo cassettes on it- Drastic Measures, Socially Fucked Up, and 3 Chord Politics.

    The wretched 7inchpunk site has this already. And “Nuke Your Dink” is probably referring to the penis, not Double Income, No Kids. It doesn’t make much sense, but in a way it makes perfect sense. Fuck the barmy army. What the fuck does “barmy” even mean?

    I answered my own question.
    barm·y (bär’mÄ“) Pronunciation Key
    adj. barm·i·er, barm·i·est
    1. Full of barm; foamy.
    2. Eccentric; daft.
    So they’re either stupid or full of foam. Sounds about right.

    Can you please upload Subterfuge’s “Who’s The Fool” LP? I found it on “an american punk in suburbia” blog, but the link was dead.

    The sound quality on the Subterfuge record isn’t much better than this 7″. I for one like the terrible sound on this compilation lol.

    by far the best thing on NUKE YOUR DINK is the last song by a nev. band called THE YOBS…thy also released an l.p. on POSITIVE FORCE RECORDS in 1986 called THE WILD HUNT… i know this because i was THE YOBS bassist from 1980 until 1991 when the members parted ways. myself, one of THE YOBS guitar players and a new drummer went on to form the band MADAM HELL (not the German MADAM HELL…they suk) and released DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS in 1992…more to come…HANX ALOT
