1986 was a pivotal year in my life. 1986 was the year I started skateboarding (not counting my old banana board from the '70s)and a bunch of East Coast hardcore bands started releasing records - Perfect skating music!
Along with DRI, Raw Power, C.O.C. and Agnostic Front, this Crumsuckers LP was among the "harder" punk stuff I listened to in 9th or 10th grade. It still holds up after all these years, although maybe not as much as I'd like*. It's pretty amazing how young these guys were when they wrote and recorded this album, but I guess you could say that for most of those bands back then. It sure makes a guy feel old and untalented.
Two of the Crumsuckers formed "Pro-Pain" and one of them went to be in the Genitorturers. I believe the Crumsuckers played some reunion shows of late as well.
(not my rip, but I included my LP scans)
*listening again for a second time, I take that back. It's still great.
