MINUTEFLAG - MINUTEFLAG [EP] (1986)
This admittedly isn't standard G.O.M.E. fare, but those of you who know me are well aware of my love of the '80s indie scene, the music of BLACK FLAG and the MINUTEMEN in particular. This collaboration between the SST heavyweights took place in 1985, while the MINUTEMEN had recently finished their Project Mersh EP, and BLACK FLAG was recording Loose Nut. The bands agreed that the MINUTEFLAG sessions wouldn't be released until one of the bands split. Within months, the legendary D. Boon was killed in a car accident, effectively putting an end to the mighty MINUTEMEN. To date, SST hasn't issued this small piece of rock history on CD.
