Bum Kon:: Drunken Sex Sucks

Denver’s Bum Kon took their name from the Korean mass murderer Woo Bum Kon. In 1983 the band recorded their only single, a five song punk tour de force called Drunken Sex Sucks, along with twenty additional tracks which have never been available until now. The original tapes were found while mastering the Local Anesthetic compilation, quite the listen itself, especially anthropologically speaking; while nowhere near the enjoyment I’ve been provided with this Bum Kon album. The press release says something along the lines of “the best hardcore album from 1983 that was never released,” and though hyperbole often runs rampant for things that can’t be proven, the statement is most certainly a fair assessment. For me, this album slips somewhere between my favorite Government Issue and Dagnasty albums with the occasional Batman guitar riffing and skate rock speed lines. Fun, edgy melodies that are a blast from the past and almost guaranteed to please anyone who thinks this might be their sort of thing.
