***While the more famous punk parties were going full swing in Warholian New York, press-savvy London, glittery LA, and other big towns, the early scenes in Ohio’s cities were toughing it out on their own. Instead of being courted with major-label deals, their handfuls of brave bands were mostly ignored, ridiculed, and physically threatened within their surrounding hostile environments. And although the pioneering activities in Cleveland and Akron have been well documented through several compilations, the early action in southern Ohio’s largest city has not—until now. Tirelessly compiled, annotated, researched, and produced by punk historian, author, and musician PETER AARON (the Chrome Cranks, Young Skulls) and co-released by HoZac Records and Shake It! Records’ Music from Ohio series, We Were Living in Cincinnati rounds up rare, raw tracks (18 on vinyl LP plus 15 bonus download-only cuts) by 21 of the town’s toughest, coolest punk and new wave outfits, several of them sourced from unheard tapes by acts who never released records in their day. Includes a tri-fold poster.
