Hates – Panacea

Hates – Panacea (Faceless) 1982. Here’s a classic. Hates with Panacea. I picked this up sealed for 50 cents in a Goodwill in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

This LP kinda exists at the spot where punk and hardcore meet. Some of the songs are pretty fast (Punk 1301, Also Watched, What Are We Living For?) while others are more mid-tempo. There’s a great subtext to this LP with songs about radiation and science fiction. I always loved the goofy sci-fi vibe to this LP. Makes a good companion to the Sleepers 7th World EP.

Also of note….lead singer Christian Arnheiter (mis)pronounces the word “nuclear” the same way the US Commander in Chief does. I wonder if that’s a Texas thing? I always thought that it was because Bush was an illiterate idiot. But Christian Arnheiter is a smart guy so what gives?

    Awesome record. Best thing they ever did!! But is this from a CD Joe? I posted the vinyl version a long time ago and of course I have to say it sounds a bit better taken from vinyl ;) .

    50 cents from a Goodwill??? Now that ‘s some good luck. The only thing I’ve ever found in a Goodwill was a 12″ of New Order’s Confusion. Then again I did find a PXL 2000 in the box (with the little TV) at MajR Thrift. Not too shabby, just not very musical. Now I just gotta read about this hot band the kids are all talking about named Teezar….

    Malfeitor – i have only had that happen a few times with Goodwill. I found a copy of the first Shoes LP at a Goodwill on Chambers Rd in St Louis. It even came with an iron on! I found Who’s Landing In My Hangar by human Switchboard at a Salvation Army in Dayton, OH and then the Hates LP in Tulsa. Enjoy the Teezar…

    Yeah Peter — I thought one of the other blogs had posted it a while back but I googled it and nothing came up so I thought it was one of the many dead blogs from the past year. Mine is a vinyl rip as well. I don’t think the LP in its entirety is available on CD.
