The Strange Reaction mp3blog posted the tracks from Clockwork Orange County, a 1985 local bands compilation. I saw a lot of these acts at the Concert Factory etc. during my LA/OC commuter punker years. I think I know the guy on the cover, actually.
Some of the acts are familiar (D.I.) and others a bit more obscure (Love Canal).
I saw the Scarecrows do a decent cover of Joy Division’s “Shadowplay” in the basement of the Cathay de Grande in about ’85 with less than 10 people in the audience. Then they dropped their mic into the saxophone and things got ugly.
