VA - Flex Your Head
 

Flex Your Head was Dischord's first compilation. Rereleased in CD form here, the comp contains 2-4 tracks from most of the first harDCore bands. Artists include Teen Idles (Ian and Jeff's first band), Untouchables (Ian's brother Alec's first band), State of Alert (Henry Rollins' first band), Minor Threat, Government Issue, Youth Brigade, Red C, Void, Iron Cross, Artificial Peace, and Deadline (with Brendan from Fugazi). As one would expect, the recording is pretty crappy and most of the songs are extremely short and violent. But just the fact that there is something at all shows that the kids were on a mission, and that something was happening. This is an essential comp for anyone interested in the DC scene or looking for a little hardcore history.
