Item Description

Every Tuesday night (European time) I will offer old punky records. My name is ‘punky_music’
Loud (!) Fast (!) Rules (!). Believe me all 4 songs will creep under your skin like a drug and totally kills your heart and brain. Here it is, the legendary first 7” release from the fantastic Los Angeles based and highly original BLACK FLAG featuring wild singer Keith Morris, later of CIRCLE JERKS fame. eBay prices: $910 + $855 + $850 + $811. The condition is EX/EX (very clean, no tears, no stains or anyhting, again very clean). As you know only 500 records of this original first vinyl pressing in black and white ‘brickwall’ sleeve were made. Considered by many to be the holy grail of US Hardcore / Punk. This cracker was released on famous West Coast label ‘SST’ in 1978. It is also the very first label release (catalogue number SST-001). The great-looking picture sleeve was created by famous Raymond Pettibone, the brother of Greg Ginn (Black Flag's guitarist). Again, all tracks of the ‘Nervous Breakdown’ EP are raw, powerful and angry....and were played with the right attitude. The title holder was born with superb lyrics like:
I'm about
To have a nervous breakdown
My head really hurts
If I don't find a way out of here
I'm gonna go berserk 'cuz
I'm crazy and I'm hurt
I hear the same old talk talk talk
The same old lines
Crazy! Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!
I don't care what you f*ckin' do
I don't care what you f*ckin' say
I'm so sick of everything
I just want to... die!
The tracks ‘Wasted’ and ‘I’ve Had It’ include all Hardcore/Punk elements you could hope for and more. ‘Fix Me’ (what a wonderful title for a punk song) was born with snotty punk vocals. The sleeve was born in non-glossy and semi glossy cover. This is the semi glossy one. Please do not miss this American super-model because all 4 tracks will push your heartbeat to the limit !!
