Direct Hit! is one of the most manic and unpredictable bands of this generation. Before their Red Scare opus, "Brainless God", the boys did a bunch of split releases with all sortsa riff raff from the punk scene. You don't wanna think about the kind of bands that DH! hangs out with anyhow; it's like scene from a movie where The Gremlins walk into Mos Eisley's Cantina. Yikes! Well, many of these songs are fan favorites but are hard to find, so we corralled the band and got them to re-record and compile these unruly jams on one record. And here we are, 11 old/new blasphemous punk blasts from Milwaukee's sketchiest dudes. Amen!

It's just a bad @$$ album! It has so much passion and fire of inspiration and strength that we need to hear right now in this world of insanity.
The content is thought out and every lyric, guitar riff, drum hit and killer Bass line is laid out perfect. From fun to serious..
IT'S JUST THAT DAMN GOOD!!! Dj ROCKIT

New favorite band! Can't believe I had never heard of them till now. They're like everything great about from the 2000s till now... like Tsunami Bomb meets The Muffs meets skate punk. Love it! Mikey Jencks
