Lost Generation – Military Heroes tape (1983, Incas)

I’m a sucker for anything adorning the Incas Records logo – maybe too much of a sucker.  Still, my investment in this tape was meager, so no major regrets.  Lost Generation were a relatively well known Connecticut hardcore crew, though not markedly innovative.  This cassette ep followed up a well received 7″ in 1982, Never Work, and several albums ensued throughout the ’80s.  “Heroes” and “Sheik Opec” are decent enough socio-political punk screeds, typical of the Raygun-era.  “Heroes (Part 2)” however, is a brief dub/reggae foray that bears nothing in common with the other song on here that it shares it’s namesake with.  “Trouble” kicks up a little dirt in the manner of Angry Samoans and White Flag, winning my vote for MVP on this cartridge.  A CD compilation of LG back catalog material, Punk This, saw the light of day in 1995.
