The Steve McQueens - Complete Discography

I have a bit of an obsession about this band - perhaps it's because I got their debut LP at a time when I only owned 15 or 20 punk rock tapes, or because they never had any success and I have a soft spot for unloved bands (I want to give them all the love I think they deserve, but do not get), or just maybe they really were great? Their sound is ramshackle, anti-fi garage punk, recorded so badly that I frequently have trouble differing between the bass and the drums, or the lead guitar and the vocals, and I don't think I ever understood a single word that was not part of a song title (OK, I think the chorus of "I've Got BSE" goes "I've got BSE, oh yeah!" but that's about it). I love them all the more for it. They came from Germany in the mid-nineties, released an album on Incognito Records in 1996 and another one on Radio Blast Recordings in 1999, along with a few singles, a split single and a couple of compilation appearances; by the turn of the century they were no more. Here then is their complete recorded legacy, 42 songs ripped from vinyl, in the hope someone beside my friend Josip will finally agree with me and say "Man, this is some of the best punk rock ever!" Give them a chance!
