DISCHARGE / Why? (1981)

Discharge were a British punk band that embraced hardcore and merged it with the traditional British punk sound.  They were hugely influential.  It’s really good if you can appreciate that no-production, recorded in a draughty shed distorted guitar sound.  Average length of tracks is about 1min 30 secs.
It won’t make you hate punk music any less if you’re not already a convert.
The CD reissue adds 12 extra tracks bringing the total to 22.

3½ out of tune and shouty stuff out of 5
