Penetrators (Washington D.C.) "Broken Promises" / The Best of Limp LP (Limp Records, 1980)

Most people buy "The Best of Limp" for the early Bad Brains song "Don't Bother Me" but that weak track blows compared to the Shirkers "Drunk and Disorderly" and this impressive offering from D.C.'s forgotten Penetrators. Not to be confused with the Penetrators from Syracuse or San Diego, this Penetrators played around DC from 1978 to 1980 and released songs on the first 2 Limp Records compilations. After the band broke up members went on to form Black Market Baby and The New Standard. Supposedly there are good unreleased studio tapes waiting to be put out.
