AbombAnation - 1988-1989 Discography
Revised on Feb. 9, 2010 for better sound quality.
More great late '80s NYC hardcore. AbombAnation played very melodic and catchy hardcore, similar to Token Entry. From what i've read, Ernie (the drummer of Token Entry) played drums on the AbombAnation demo, and his brother was the vocalist. I started this collection off with the three songs from the New Breed tape. These songs are on the demo, but the quality is much better on the New Breed tape so i decided to include them, as it's the best representation of the band's powerful sound. The 1988 demo is pretty easy to come by these days, so the real gem here is the live set on WFMU recorded in February of 1989. The WFMU studio seems to have a way of bringing out the best in bands, and this set is no exception. Incredible stuff. Apparently there was also a recording done for an unreleased album. I'd love to hear that. If anyone has it, please get in touch.
