VARIOUS "Life Is Ugly So Why Not Kill Yourself" LP

Euro Import, LP on heavy YELLOW vinyl.

First ever vinyl reissue for this seminal compilation of early California hardcore punk, originally issued on the New Underground label in 1982. Featuring such names as the Descendents, Minutemen, Anti, Saccharine Trust, Redd Cross along with more obscure ones as Civil Dismay, Ill Will, or Zurich 1916. Also features China White, Mood Of Defiance, 100 Flowers, Urinals, and Plebs. Includes double-sided insert with notes by Susan Swear. Fully remastered. Yellow vinyl.

"Once you listen to the bands on Life Is Ugly So Why Not Kill Yourself (RRS 149LP), and the other two volumes: Life Is Beautiful So Why Not Eat Health Foods and Life Is Boring So Why Not Steal This Record (RRS 165LP), the listener will agree that these are some of the best punk compilations of their time. No punk record collection is complete without copies of these albums, and it is amazing how time has forgotten and overlooked the impact and important piece of punk music history they are a part of. Now, thanks to Radiation Records, all three Life Is record compilations by New Underground Records are being re-released. Almost 40 years after their initial release, the Life Is compilations are the perfect soundtrack for the chaotic world we are currently living in." --Susan Swear
