Want Some Free CLEpunk MP3s?




Want a buttload of awesome old CLEpunk mp3s?

Former Offbeats honcho Tom "Tommy Hawk" Miller has posted, on his blog, the astonishing 1982 compilation This Tape Sucks.

As a time capsule of the Cleveland/Akron punk scene of the early '80s, Sucks is easily the equal of the far better-known They Pelted Us With Rocks and Garbage and features the Offbeats, Definics, Zero Defex and the notorious Starvation Army (whose logo can still be found graffitied under select bridges), among others.
