The Consumers - All My Friends Are DEAD !!!

THE CONSUMERS were the ultimate groundbreaking American punk band....formed in Phoenix sometime in 77, gone the next year after a move to the crazy LA scene, THE CONSUMERS played snarling fast in yr face punk rock like no one else at the time....  they never released anything during their short existence and because of that few if any remember the Consumers.....

until now, IN THE RED RECORDS has just released their demo recordings as an LP entitled, ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD..... 

THE CONSUMERS set the stage for the Germs and Black Flag, and perhaps their only contemporaries playing such furious punk in 77 were the Sex Pistols, the Damned, Crime, Rocket from the Tombs and the Ramones.....and that's good company...... most people didn't really figure out what punk was until much much later.... 

so if you wanna listen to the great lost punk classic.......
highly fucking recommended.......

listen to a couple of tracks below....

Must been at least 10-15 years since this album came out

It was reissued before. But now in the red is releasing it on vinyl. So all of us that missed it before can buy it.
