Description

The Skinny: Complete Discography is a 1989 compilation album released by the American hardcore punk band Minor Threat on the band’s own Dischord Records label. As the title implies, this set contains their entire recorded works as of 1989.

Sounds like: Bad Brains, Black Flag, Minutemen, Descendants, The Germs, The Dead Kennedys

Deeper Thoughts: This is some seminal punk rock shit, right here. Vocalist Ian McKaye and drummer Jeff Nelson did it themselves before it was sort of the only way to make a go of it. Minor Threat set the blueprint for artists for how to self-produce, self-promote and sleep in a fucking van. This material has not aged one day; there are still bands trying to sound exactly like this. That’s what can happen when a band is truly about the art. We had them pegged all along. Damn.

The Sonics: It was 1989 and CD as an audio format was still trying to find its groove. The stuff from Out of Step sounds pretty good, with a bit of low-end thump. But the early stuff sounds thin and brittle. I have to crank it to get some decent gain and low-end response, which leads to fairly quick ear fatigue. Minor Threat was DIY their entire career, so it’s fun to hear how they progressed sonically. Listen to this disc loud, in any case.

Personnel

Ian MacKaye – vocals
Lyle Preslar – guitar
Brian Baker – bass guitar
Steve Hansgen – bass guitar
Jeff Nelson – drums

Hi! Welcome to our virtual record shop.

Our blog’s been around for a while, but we’re now finally realizing our dream of helping people find and enjoy great-sounding music. We’ve been involved with digital technology for playback gear since the late ’80s, representing specialty-audio divisions of Philips Electronics.

While we dig technology, our hearts have always been with the music. We appreciate well-recorded, well-mixed & mastered music in all formats, but we have a special affinity for the CD (compact disc). That’s what you’ll find here in our shop – CDs.

About The Shop

Although the once-preeminent CD has fallen out of favor in recent years, it persists. It’s a great-sounding format that has been diligently refined over the years and continues to deliver reference-quality sound. Just as audiophiles never abandoned vinyl, they have not abandoned CD. In fact, as CD enters its specialty niche phase, the quality of discs and playback gear continues to improve. We encourage you to reconsider CD – it’s a great addition to any serious music collector’s range. And it’s great therapy for the increasingly common condition known as “vinyl fatigue.”

We offer lovingly-curated custom batches of discs. We do not intend to compete with Amazon and Walmart, or streaming services. Our desire is to offer a range of sounds that are hard to find, or not available to stream, and are worth collecting. You’ll find new titles from respected independent labels, as well as interesting previously-owned discs from our extensive archive. We rotate the batches on a regular basis, so make it a point to come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab.

Have a look to some of the great articles by our regular rotation of contributors. And please leave comments, offer your reviews, and like & follow us on the usual social-media platforms – we’re almost always @360degreesound. We look forward to getting to know each other and the kind of music you like to collect. We respectfully solicit your feedback and suggestions.

Be well. Love music. Listen critically. – Chris Bisha, proprietor
