I wish there was a "click here to download all the tracks" button -- that's a lot of good music there.

Nice collection. I was surprised to see Crucial Truth and the Misguided there, two early NYHC bands that not a lot of people remember today.

I can go to a hardcore show, and see F.O.D.

Wow. You are my new best friend. I'm sure all the cool kids knew about this years ago, but better late than never. Thanks!

Yay for N.O.T.A., Okie hardcore at its finest (okay, Brother Inferior may have something to say about that, but they didn't come around til the 90's). Thanks for this, battleshipk (though you have a tag in as "steveblunt", not "steveblush".

At least Flipper got their due. "Ha Ha Ha" is genius.

Whoa. What a trove! Bookmarked. Thanks for this!

(Tangent: while looking for something else entirely, I happened to read "Metal" Mike Saunders (Angry Samoans, coined the term "heavy metal", punk icon) Wikipedia page. He's FIFTY-EIGHT. Holy shit. We all got old.)

They call this a hardcore compilation? There's only 8 songs in the whole list with 'Reagan' in the title.

cazoo- I was doing the same thing looking for old hardcore bands from the Pomona/San Gabriel Valley area in CA and there's a lot more than I expected. Pillsbury Hardcore, Flower Leperds, Decry, 2 songs from my buddies in Mad Parade - very nice. They even have Peace Corpse, which was Bill from Toxic Shock's band, icluding their song from the Noise From Nowhere ep when they were still Moslem Birth (though they have them listed as from OH.) Gonna be doing some downloading tonight...

BEST POST STOP THE CONTEST

I hope these make up for the fact that the only Canadian band on there is DOA.

Bonus!

If you're using Firefox you can install an add-on which will allow you to easily download all the songs at once.

Author is doing a reading tonight here in chicago... I can't go as I am djing but will be playing some puzzled hipsters Inside Out and Chain of Strength as they quaff their $ 9 artisanal cocktails

If you have any amount of shell savvy:

wget -rm http://www.americanhardcorebook.com/punk24/trax

If it stalls or errors out, just run the command again from the same directory. The -m flag is "mirroring" so it won't download it again if the file hasn't changed.

Consider adding --limit-rate=250k or something respectful. I got as high as 1MB/sec, but that could be swamping his cap.

Yeah, the page is crashing under the weight of traffic. OK, everyone, stop visiting the page. Here's what we'll do: everyone gets a randomly-selected number, and we visit one at a time. Nice, single-file line, no cutsies.

That sounds amazing. Maybe someone can post a mirror or torrent link?

The command line bafflegab posted is working great for me in Terminal.
posted by Marisa Stole the Precious Thing at 5:42 PM on December 3, 2010


wget is deprecated in MacOS X and replaced with curl. I can't find equivalent options in curl to do mirror mode, and I don't feel like installing Fink just to get wget. Downthemall is terrible, I keep getting errors, something about temp files overwriting.
Yeah, he should have planned ahead and made a torrent. Can we take care of this for him?

If you're on OS X and you want something that's a lot simpler than Fink, you might consider MacPorts. When you want to install wget, just do a 'sudo port install wget' and you'll be golden.

On the other hand, if you want to let a big multinational tell you what you can and can't do, maybe you should think again about what you're trying to download.
posted by bafflegab at 10:03 AM on December 5, 2010


bafflegab, your tired anti-Mac argument is inappropriate here. I decide what goes on my Mac, and I don't want to futz around with MacPorts or Fink. I've run them both on other machines and it is my decision not to run them on my current main Mac.

So who is telling who what they can and can't do?

In any case, I was able to eventually grab the files with downthemall, albeit with extensive retries, so the point is moot.

please torrent
