Blatz/Filth Split Reissue out on Alternative Tentacles

Alternative Tentacles is reissuing the Blatz/Filth Split record, I think it is coming out Tuesday October 28. This classic punk LP came out on Lookout in 1991. I somehow lost my copy to my roommates record collection a few years back, so I am psyched. In case this record passed you by the first time, don't let it happen again. Blatz is seriously one of the greatest punk groups of all time, perhaps the greatest of the 90's, although these things are hard to measure. Footage of them seems to be hard to come by for some reason, but here is a taste of the chaos.

Blatz-Fuck New York
live at Gilman Street, 1991

not dissimilar to the void/faith imbalance, with all due respect to faith
