First, a description of each band...

Filth- a unique blend of crust, hardcore, and street punk. They sound like a discordant, alcohol-saturated version of an earlier crust band (Nausea comes to mind) with massive, sludgy guitars and abrasively screamed vocals. Musically, they are extremely similar to early Rudimentary Peni, an obvious influence on Filth, with some twisted melodic embellishments courtesy of Isocracy guitarist Len Rokk. The lyrics are intelligent, albeit sloppy and written in "rant" form with very little concern for rhyming. You'll find that pretty much everything Filth ever did is on this disc, with two versions of Scarred for Life (the first is a little better) and an Oi! cover thrown in to pad things out. Shame they didn't last too long, but you can still catch a reunion show at Gilman every now and then.

Blatz- old-school, '77 Los Angeles style punk with one male/two female vocalists and a guitar sound that I can only describe as "warped". They were more mid-tempo and less serious than Filth, but no less abrasive (thanks to Anna Joy's ear piercing vocal style). Blatz are like a snottier, slightly more depraved version of X, whose song "Nausea" is covered here. You'll also find a cover of Fear's "I Don't Care About You" on this disc. Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day fame played guitar in Blatz, but does not appear on any of these recordings. Like Filth, they lasted only a few years before breaking up, though they occasionally do reunion shows at Gilman.

In short, both bands compliment each other very well. There's even a humorous, good-natured lyric swap between the bands on here (see track #7 by Filth and track #4 by Blatz). I have the Lookout Records version of this split, which came packaged with extensive liner notes and artwork from each band.

Ok,this Cd is absolutely great, and a must have for any punk out there. It isn't the usualy run-of-the-mill Exploited Dk Misfits type of bands. Filth is great and one of the best bands ever. The Blatz in my opinion is the greatest band ever. Anna Joy is absolutely wonderful and her voice will stick with you. I suggest if you can get your hands on it and have a record player getting the gr'ups and Cyper in Snow (anna joy from the Blatz other bands). I have had the Cd for over 6 months and the LP for a year I prefer the record because you can go straight to the song "Chuck" without going through "lullabye" again. Filth's song "Todays Lesson" Is absolutelly one of the greatest punk songs ever. Even though I am from the Bay Area I was unfortunatelly to young to experience this part of the scene, there is no more punk like this anymore but when I hear it, it is kind of a history lesson of what punk was 10 years ago, and the influence on what it is now. So to everyone who is even considering buying this CD, it is worth it and money well spent. E-mail me to tell me what you think.

this is the best split i think i've ever heard. filth were a great band falling somewhere in between crust core and street punk while blatz were just amazing...scrappy, disjointed punk rock with geeky male vocals and 2 screeching chicks singers. this double cd contains the original split lp, and even better the rest of each band's discographies! the booklet is also constructed really well. this is an essential portrait of the late 80s east bay scene, especially for those who thought all that time period produced were green day and operation ivy. as jesse lucious said, it was a good idea to rerelease this on the evil compact disc format to expose those trendy green day punx to the ugly realities of punk and maybe even corrupt them. i feel they succeeded!

the fact that this c.d. is out of print is a downright tragedy, i own it on c.d. and vinyl. i keep the c.d. in my car and the record at home to make sure i am never without this album. filth is so f*ckin raw it's ridiculous their side of the split is old school punk with raw hardcore vocals, this is the best delivery of that style of vocals ever. the blatz side is equally impressive there are three vocalists jesse lucious who later formed the criminals, and the frisk is the only bring down of the album but the female vocalists on this album are crazy, one of them kind of sounds like eve libertine from crass, and the other has a voice that sounds so obnoxious that it makes poly styrene from x-ray specs vocals sound like whitney houston, she is the most shameless and entertaining vocalist ever, and there lyrics are pretty funny too. if you find this album for cheaper than 40 bucks i highly recomend it, but paying that much for a c.d. is ridiculous, even though it is a double c.d. and both c.d.s are over 70 minutes.

This is a classic album for anyone into the East Bay punk rock scene. Two GREAT bands, I'm pretty sure the CD has the songs from their 7"s also. They are two of my favorite, and the songs are classic tunes you can sing to. Members of these bands went on to form other great bands such as: Dead And Gone, The Criminals, Subincision, The Frisk, The Gr'ups, Cypher in the Snow, Strychnine... You get the picture.

Listen to me when I tell you that Blatz was genius. Blatz was basically a band that went to the studio and crapped around. But what came out of your toilet speakers was brilliant razor edged rose petals of biological waste danger. Buy this now. Why are you still reading this? Go... Buy it... Now.
