V/A - Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes From The American Indie Underground 1981-1991


Hey, my name is David Abraham Jeremiah Snusgrop and I flog horses wherever I go.

Last week I made this post about Michael Azerrad's Our Band Could Be Your Life. Go read it, I'm not going over it again. After making that post I had to go back and re-read the book, and sure enough I couldn't stop myself from making yet another compilation, one specifically based on the book.

I literally couldn't stop myself. Am I autistic?

Two tracks from each band featured in the book, in the order in which the appear in said book. I'm not the first person to do this, just the best.

I'm so fucking awesome.
