MONEY IS NOT MY CURRENCY CD
Collector scum will pay close to $1000.00 for Appendix LPs, making them completely out of reach for every punk I know. Propaganda’s CD includes the Money Is Not My Currency LP plus their songs from the Russia Bombs Finland comp for $13.00 including shipping, so the vinyl vs. CD argument is fucking stupid. Anyway, even some of the best Finnish hardcore bands blatantly worship Discharge, so Appendix stands out with a dark edge more comparable to early L.A. greats like The Germs. Then after you just heard the best plodding, violent punk song in your life, Appendix will tear through an almost-thrash rager with the best punk-as-fuck songwriting you’ll ever hear.
