Xterminators: Microwave Radiation 7"
[Death Vault Records]

When i started Death Vault Records, there was many records i wanted to reissue, but the main ones were Jimmy Smack "Death Rocks" and the Xterminators record. It feels good to have accomplished this! This reissue comes with an extra thick jacket, a one-sided 7" x 7" insert featuring an unseen picture of the band. If you are not familiar with this record, the A side is a killer, twisted synth-punk song (That was featured on Killed by Death #5) while the B side (That was featured on Break the Rules #8) reminds me of the Weirdos at their best. This was originally released on the Radioactive label from San Diego in 1979.

Our take: Reissue of this KBD gem from 1978. It's easy to see why the a-side of this one became a thing among KBD collectors, as it ticks a lot of the boxes that one looks for in that style. It's got a cool synth-melody, very of-its-time nuclear paranoia, and best of all a cool novelty aspect to it (which mostly manifests itself in the form of the Coneheads / 1950s alien voices that sing the choruses). It's a great track, for sure, and if it's not enough for you to own Killed by Death #5 this is a worthy addition to collection. Further, you also get the b-side (which I hadn't heard before), a solid Heartbreakers-esque rocker that sounds like something that might have come out on the Raw Records label back in the day.
