DESERT RATS WITH BASEBALL BATS
SQUID HAT RECORDS
DESERT RATS WITH BASEBALL BATS is a killer compilation release that was put
out as limited edition green vinyl on Record Store Day 2014. The release features 14
tracks showcasing some of the best Punk bands from Las Vegas. The bands range from
new school Punk to old school Punk, some Punk/Hardcore crossover bands and more.
This is a good compilation for fans to check out that never really new that Las Vegas had
a big Punk scene. I was recently turned on to the scene a few years back and most of that
comes from SQUID HAT RECORDS sending some releases my way. There is a bunch of
killer bands featured here. Some of the bands include: BATTLE BORN, CHILD
ENDANGERMENT, HARD PIPE HITTERS, LAMBS 2 LIONS, LOOSE CHANGE,
ROID RAGE, SECTORS 7G, S.F.T., SOUNDS OF THREAT, UNFAIR FIGHT,
WAR CALLED HOME, THE GASHERS, THE CIVILIANS and I.D.F.I. Some of
these bands I was familiar with and most I was first being exposed to. This is a very cool
compilation with some killer Punk / Hardcore bands. If you can snag yourself a copy,
then you must, because it's worth it.
