25th anniversary reissue of the
Welcome to 1984 compilation LP

1984front-PC-wBorder-sm

Maximum Rocknroll is proud to reissue of the seminal Welcome to 1984 compilation LP. Welcome to 1984 was one of the very first — and perhaps best — compilations to document the first wave of international hardcore. This LP features legendary bands from all over the globe including Terveet Kädet (Finland), BGK (Netherlands), The Stalin (Japan), Olho Seco (Brazil), Raw Power (Italy), Rattus (Finland), RIP (Spain), and many more. 23 bands in all, from 17 different countries!

“… this LP covers the scene more as it ‘should be’ — more political with a spirit of independence and resistance in every cut.” —Al Flipside, from Flipside #43, 1984

Check out Felix Havoc’s write-up about it HERE.

SORRY, THIS LP IS SOLD OUT.


Noise Ordinance Bay Area comp LP

UPDATE: This comp is now available as a download from our webstore!

In the tradition of our now-classic California punk/HC compilation Not So Quiet on the Western Front, nearly thirty years later we present to you the Noise Ordinance compilation LP! This 2011 San Francisco Bay Area comp features some of the most exciting and dangerous sounds from the local scene, including MORPHEME, NEEDLES, RANK/XEROX, NN, SHOTWELL, BLACK RAINBOW, SURRENDER, CONQUEST FOR DEATH, ACEPHALIX, AIRFIX KITS, RULETA RUSA, FACE THE RAIL, ECOLI, MIGRAINE, YEAR ONE, LOVE SONGS, SUICIDE BOMB, HUNX AND HIS PUNX, ACTS OF SEDITION, FIX MY HEAD, I WILL KILL YOU FUCKER, DUCK AND COVER, and the FLESHIES. And (of course) it comes with a newsprint zine-sized insert with a page from each band and some killer Bay Area punk photo spreads from local photographers.
