Complete Discography compiles Minor Threat's entire body of recordings on a single compact disc. Hardcore, as a rule, wasn't particularly musically diverse, but Minor Threat were one of the genre's groundbreaking acts and their music has held up better than most of their contemporaries. As the de facto leaders of the Washington, D.C., hardcore scene, the band pioneered the straight-edge mentality by emphasizing impossibly fast tempos, brief songs, political lyrics, and a drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle. Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Supremely syrupy dance music that bends, warps, and massages the mind at will, this features the deep techno classic "Trespassers," a track Carl Craig loved enough to license for release on Planet E a full two years after the original Delsin 12" appeared. Much of the remainder has a similarly disorienting effect, ranging from apparitional ambient to muffled house grooves that possibly inspired the likes of Kassem Mosse and Actress.
