Sluglords - “Trails of Slime” (1984)

I don’t know much about this 1980s hardcore band from San Francisco.  I actually bought the record thinking it was a completely different band.  While there was some initial disappointment when I realized my mistake, that quickly disappeared as soon as the beginning of “FxTxWx” kicked in, because this is a killer record.  I’m not normally into hardcore, but Trails of Slime has some thrash elements to it as well, reminding me a bit of Wehrmacht and maybe just a hint of DRI.  My only complaint here is that the runout groove runs all the way under the label - so you need to bring up that tonearm before the stylus hits the paper!
