Someone over at a music blog called Good bad Music for bad, bad Times, has done old Texas punk fans a real solid, posting the entirety of the 1979 Texas proto-punk compilation Are We Too Late For The Trend? compilation up for download.
The compilation features some real gems, including tracks from Dallas icons The Nervebreakers ("I Love Your Neurosis"), Barry Kooda ("So Sorry") and The Telefones ("Solid Ground").
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
