Gism - Detestation (1984)
I know most people will have heard this album...but it's a dedication to a friend.
I first heard this band when a mate grabbed a copy from someone based in London...on the first listening I hated it, on the second it was alright, on the third I loved it. I then spent the next 26 years trying to buy the fucking thing off him, and I never managed it. He had a love for foreign punk/hardcore and this album was a real gem.
Sadly that friend died last weekend and he'll be missed by many. I'll never forget him as he was an inspiration for my love of American Hardcore.
