The other SLF studio recordings all contain some fine songs but are recommended only to hardcore fans. Hanx, however, is a live recording that brilliantly serves two purposes: first, as proof of what incendiary live shows SLF was capable of; second, as a greatest hits record. Unsurprisingly, the tempos here are much faster than the studio recordings, but that simply adds to the excitement. Overlooked upon its release, Hanx is a raging, non-stop hunk of punk rock that sounds great even after all these years. Issued on CD by Restless Retro in 1990.
