Strange Reaction is a music blog that serves up mp3s from obscure and out of print old school punk records. Don't miss The Damned on John Peel, Bad Brain's first 7", and The Neon Boys (pre-Television Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine!).

Let me interrupt this little lovefest to just say . . .

aw, hell who am i kidding. This is beautiful!

Although, LarryC, if you "forgot" the Bad Brains you need to be bitch slapped.

Jeez, Collin! Write to me, I lost all your contact information after your last move. I got stuff to tell you.

And wow, there is so much vinyl I no longer need to digitize now. V nice.

Alright damnit, my friend John has been doing this EVERY DAY since January 1st of this year. He posts out of print 45s, and I told him at the time it's the most original thing I've seen in a long time, blah blah blah. I even sent the link to Stereogum. Anyway, for those that are digging this please throw some love over to Little Hits. John deserves the credit for being at least the most consistent at this type of thing, if not also the first.

Killing Joke and The Damned - god bless their smelly, little cotton socks.

I can see I'll be doing a lot of downloading.

Awesome awesome awesome.

And glad to know that my fellow mefites dig the real rocknroll.

Does this mean there's no market anymore for all my old punk singles?
