BREAKOUTS- No more 12″EP (Accelerator Records, USA, 1983)

This is the first in a series of reposts. Over the next couple of weeks, I will loosely intersperse highlights from the past years. With 666 posts, Goodbadmusic has become a bit confusing and especially older posts never got the attention the bands deserve. Remember to legally purchase whatever you have downloaded and like. See it as support or as an act of appreciation.

The BREAKOUTS’ third and final release is still extremely underappreciated. A shame. Power, urgency, intelligence, originality and a great overall sense of seriousness and depth makes this one of 1983 essentials.

Why this has never been re-released, I don’t know. One of the best Hardcore Punk records ever released. Period. Find the BREAKOUTS first 7″ here and the 2nd 7″ here. Ripped with love. Forget all the other shit ass quality rips on crap blogs all over. Enjoy fuckers.

Download the complete EP here. [Originally posted on September 2008]

    @ KBD guy: Was this comment meant to be sarcastic? GBM has not only the best music in the best quality. It also has the best texts. And I don’t see Eric buying expensive records on ebay just to post them on his blog. Like you do.

    Don’t want to start a fight here. But it’s just toooo funny saying “i wont pay for punk records” on his blogs header while spending thousands of $ for records on ebay so he can show off a week later. A friend told me he recently paid 1200$ for that chronick sick lp he uses under the “i won’t pay for punk records” slogan. Hahaha. That’s just tooo pathetic if it’s true.

    AnalOwl? What’s it?

    Thanks for the upload. Quality is as always far superior to any other rip.

    This one is a scorcher in my book. I only got to 100 posts and already I can’t remember if one of the bad rips was mine???? And you’re in the 400s???? Erich is indeed quite industrious. As far as the text goes, this may have been your punkest post to date- you worked “shit ass” “crap” and “fuckers” into it. Bravo!

    That’d be great if you could repost the 2nd 7″. Never liked the first one and never heard the 2nd one but the 12″ has followed me the past 25 years. Saw them play in Frisco once with the DKs and REBEL TRUTH among others and I can say the BREAKOUTS blew every other band off the stage that night. I still have the live tape somewhere (a friend of mine recorded it through the soundboard). I will supply it to you if you want so you can rip and post it. It contains many unreleased songs and the quality is stunning. Drop me a line.

    I saw this band a few times in ’84 and really enjoyed them. the singer who i think played either guitar or bass had a tall mohawk. The crowd didn’t get into them and i don’t know why cause i thought they were power driven punk as fuck!
    btw, i downloaded their 2nd ep on Peter’s blog and i’ve been searching for those songs for a long ass time! thanx Peter! however, i do agree with Staffan that’s it’s foolish buying records on ebay for thousands of $ when u can download them for free!

  30. Eddie: Peter has the first 7″ uploaded, which is the weakest in my books (but still very good). Expect a repost of the 2nd anytime soon on this blog.

    Well, I belong to those who spend all their money on ebay. I won’t necessarily pay ultra high pay prices for single items (some exceptions), but that is ONLY due to the fact that I’m not very rich. If I had the money I wouldn’t care. I could never just listen to downloaded music, without having the actual vinyl, the cover, the whole thing as it was. Unthinkable.

  31. And another thing is that you you wouldn´t be albe to find most of the really rare records as free downloads if it wasn´t for Erich and me.

    Strange how it can be foolish to spend thousands of dollars on records if you have rare records to sell your self to fund the spendings. Please elaborate.

    Time to download YYY to hear it it´s as bad as I thought it was before selling my own copy.

    Um, I think it’s called record collecting?? It’s just a hobby, you know, for fun. See, there are groups of people and sometimes they want the same thing. When the thing is scarce, which punk records are by their very nature due to small pressings, the prices go up as with anything people collect. If someone tells you that high $$ and punk music are ideologically opposed, you should respond by telling them that they should give you their Deep Wound 7″ for free then. My guess is that they’ll tell you to go fuck yourself. I say everyone should continue paying whatever they think a record is worth and then providing it for free to the rest of the world. Even the ingrates I suppose. If they ever bothered to take the time to rip a record, scan in the covers, and do a nice write up they would realize they were getting a pretty sweet deal.

    I feel misunderstood! I did not say any thing against spending many dollars for records. That’s fine! I find it amusing that Peter buys so many very expensive records only to post them on his blog. I think that’s that is the main diffrence between GBM and KBD. Erich writes with passion and knowledge. Peter just displays rare stuff(which often totally sucks but thats just my taste). If you see that different-your problem. I’m only saying what I think. If this makes me a asshole ….. Fuck you!

  35. OKAY, STAFFAN. And how do you like the Breakouts then?

    [Reply]

    Posted on 28-Sep-08 at 10:36 | Permalink
  36. “…just displays rare stuff…” for the reason of showing off? If that was so I would post all my rare stuff from the 80s HC scene, right? Sorry but showing off is not the reason at all. The reason for me is to make rare and great music(you´re in the minority Staffan, sorry) available for people to hear. Since I´ve been buying so much stuff during the years from 1977 and onward I have a vast amount of records to sell which gives me money to buy records I want instead. It´s a different kind of trading.

    I could post many records that are not rare but kicks ass. But that is for others to do.

    When it comes to writing. The records are often new to me and hence I don´t know a shit about the bands. And I´ve said many times on my blog: I´m not a reviewer never will be and don´t strive to be. My verbal ability to describe music is very limited: this is awesome or this sucks so many german slime balls it´s not even funny.

    If you have a problem with the KBD blog DON´T FUCKING GO THERE! Are you stupid?

    And in the end what exactly are you trying to accomplish? And last but not the least what have you done??

    To me it seems like you´re on the jealous side. Don´t be. Get a life instead.

  41. Nice thing you got going on this one Erich. You get these every once in a while, I guess we all do. Criticism, name calling, ignorance. A true reflextion of the world. Thought this was taken care of in comment # 13, but oh well. I for one am truely grateful for what guys like you and Peter do. It would have taken years and years of tape trading to even come close to the amount of music shared. Comment #32 sums it up pretty well. When you get some time can you re-up that second Breakout’s single as promised in comment # 23. Drop me a line when you can so we can discuss that Urban Waste rip you promised so long ago. :)

  42. Justin: Didn’t Peter post UW not to long ago?

    Anybody knows whether the first and 2nd DRI 7″ have been remixed on all the official reissues? I know there was one DRI reissue LP containg them two (with a horrible full colored cover, using a drawing from the 2nd 7″ insert; it’s on Metal Blade or Roadrunner) – this had remixed versions with down turned guitar and added bass. Is there a need for the original mixes? ;-)

    [Reply]

    Posted on 29-Sep-08 at 10:14 | Permalink
  43. Erich, you’re right Peter did do a the UW post but he killed the links to the tunes back then because they came out with a reissue. He actually has a nice record store story in that post. You and I had spoken about it after my Ill Repute post and my claim that Land Of No Toilets was one of the best hardcore 7″s ever. You wrote something that I thought profound, “About “best record”: To me, a “best record” is always the best until it isn’t. It has a lot to do with passion and enthusiasm and moments.” Then you and a certain German fellow blogger got into a verbal tussle that started with the quality of the original 7″ vs. the 12″ reissue. Then you guys started writting in German and I didn’t know what the fuck was going on. So lost in all that, Justin never got to hear the original UW 7″. I guess we will move on now though because you are now talking about the original mix of the DRI 7″, which I would love to hear. :-)

I know people are following my eBay auctions and this was a way of taking the piss out for example people like yourself who worries too much about what other people do with their money. Still you haven´t answered some questions I asked you. Oh well don´t answer cause I don´t want to know.

  50. The Breakouts were such a great band! This 12″EP has really grown on me over the years. Sorry Erich, but my favorite Breakouts record is the 1st single “In Vagueness Deal”. It is very charming to me since it’ so sloppy. That 1st 7″ and this “No More” 12″EP are like worlds apart in terms of “musicianship” but but great records.

    I have a copy of an unreleased 8-song Breakouts CD that was recorded in 1995 that I need to post on my blog when I have some time. It’s pretty good. I remember getting a copy in 1996 and thinking, “Oh, I need to keep this under wraps since maybe they’ll release it soon”. Twelve years later, I still never heard that it officially came out…. er, thus justifying it to be posted on a blog.
