Black Flag’s “Nervous Breakdown” single started everything off — four songs in six minutes.  Here’s the title track.

I first heard this one in a Santa Cruz skate video as Jeff Grosso skated a big ramp (maybe Fallbrook?). Around the same time, a friend gave me a mix tape with some more Flag stuff on it. I was confused — the music all sounded the same, but I wondered why every song seemed to have a different singer.

Tomorrow I’ll talk about the perpetual ‘best singer’ argument.
