The Crusties - "Crustunes" LP
The Crusties - Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $11.98
THE CRUSTIES are a legendary, extremely tight, early/mid 80s, Milwaukee WI based band known for playing fast aggressive hardcore and putting their own take on how it should be played.

Their music pushes hardcore past the limits, and expands upon what most bands bands were doing at that time. They integrated interesting guitar parts along with super-swift tempo changes and stops. They threw in an occasional trumpet riff, along with overt and aggressive jazz influences. It all combined to make up one of the fastest playing, and musically unique bands, ever.

Every time they played, it was obvious these guys were having a blast, but they took their songs (and their musicianship) very seriously. Practicing several times a week was not uncommon for these guys. Neither was their singers propensity for blowing giant balls of fire out of his mouth at shows!

From 1984 until 1987 THE CRUSTIES played any number of shows in their hometown of Milwaukee, as well as many neighboring states. They even got a few tours under their belts, traveling the Midwest and Southern United States. They opened for legendary bands like THE CIRCLE JERKS, MEAT PUPPETS, HUSKER DU, SAMHAIN, MDC, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, along with MOTORHEAD and THE BODEANS. After THE CRUSTIES opened up for THE DEAD KENNEDYS, Jello Biafra remarked how THE CRUSTIES were a breath of fresh air, when compared to what they had seen on the road that year. In 1987, with their singer moving to Austin TX, THE CRUSTIES went on hiatus. They managed to get together at least once a year, to play shows when their singer would come back to visit. So they never really broke up.

And now, Beer City Skateboards and Records is proud to bring you THE CRUSTIES on their first and only full length album: THE CRUSTIES - Crustunes. This is a limited edition, completely restored and re-mastered RSD 2016 reissue. After being out of print for nearly 30 years this musical gem will finally be reissued (for the first time on vinyl,) to the delight of many fans world-wide! This release contains 16 tracks of fast, aggressive, unique music that will leave you begging for more, and wishing you could witness the live carnage of THE CRUSTIES!
