Dagger zine's Tim Hinely brings us Adolescents' self-titled debut record.
Fullerton, California's Adolescents' 1981 self-titled debut - aka The Blue Album - was one of the first hardcore punk albums to be widely distributed throughout the United States. This week's guest Tim Hinely (Dagger zine, Where The Wild Gigs Were) makes the case that their superior brand of melodic hardcore is a classic of the genre, and he gets no argument from us! Go!!
