RSD 2020 release. Influential independent label, Posh Boy, helped the southern California punk scene to gain traction in the late '70s and early '80s through a series of releases by then-unknown bands. The legendary 1979 compilation Beach Blvd referenced Route 39, a highway that connected the label's various artists, located in suburbs from Huntingdon Beach up to the San Gabriel Valley. Rosemead's Simpletones were one of the first melodic punk acts; Huntingdon Beach's The Crowd drew from surf rock and hardcore in equal measure, while the material credited to Rik L Rik are actually remixes of demos he cut with Negative Trend , now with bass overdubs by Simpletones guitarist Jay Lansford , who also cut lead guitar on "Atomic Lawn". This ultra-expanded, double vinyl reissue features 17 bonus tracks of Simpletones and The Crowd material, as well as live material from Rik L Rik's first group, the legendary F-Word! , and the two only known tracks recorded by The Klan , the short-lived quartet fronted by Simpletones vocalist, Richard "Snickers" Scott . Includes updated liner notes. Yellow and turquoise vinyl; gatefold sleeve; edition of 700.
