LABELS AND BANDS
If you're looking for a link to a particular band or label just go here:
www.grunnenrocks.nl . Evert has compiled an unbelievably detailed (and cross-referenced) list of bands, labels, and people. So if you're looking for discographies, track listings, contact info, or anything in between, Grunnen Rocks is the place. The closest thing to the Bible on the internet.
Lipstick Killers:   Mark Murmann's site that contains both CompHELLation, an in-depth guide to KBD, Bloodstains, Back to Front, and all other '78-'83 punk compilations, plus his ACTION! photozine.
Killed By Hype:   An amazing site run by collector and nice guy Paul Routenberg, specializing in KBD-era punk. Detailed lists and reviews of compilations, plus country-by-country discographies. Opinionated and generally dead-on.
Kill from the Heart:   A pretty detailed worldwide hardcore site with a lot of great links and info for mostly pre-1990 acts. A great resource for tracking down those Brazilian hardcore records or if you need to brush up on your Terveet Kadet knowledge. Packed with obscure stuff.
Collectorscum.com:   A page that houses Henry Weld's Music Pages (extensive Australian punk/Radio Birdman discographies) and Volume 3 of the Discography of American Punk, which is a fanatical list of pretty much any early American punk record you can think of, divided by region/state, and with cover scans/pressing info for most of them. Plus, the Discography of Punk 8-Tracks among other things. An incredible resource.
Goner Records:   The world's hottest bulletin board, plus mailorder/news/pics/Memphis courtesy of Eric Oblivian.

Trouser Press:   They pretty much stopped paying attention starting in 1996 or so, but for anything before then it's still an invaluable resource for discographies and well-written reviews for all that is/was "New Wave" or "Underground" at the time. E-mail your questions to Ira Robbins himself, he actually answers them.
