The finest US punk band EVER,
This review is from: First Four Years / Singles (Audio CD)
Yes, the production is unforgivably lame (any hope that Rollins could get hold of the master tapes and remix one day??)
BUT, for the sheer brutal assault and teeth-clenched ferocity, this line-up could not be beaten. Greg Ginn was the finest guitarist of the era, and I first saw the Flag live at the 100 Club in 82 - not long after Rollins had joined - they were the only US band to match the intensity of the Sex Pistols who I also saw live in 76 & 77.
"Why just get punched when you can get fully blasted?" the Flag used to ask about their live shows - play this along with 'Damaged' and believe it....
