The Faction – Collection 2 (Uncollectable)
The Faction were a hardcore punk band from San Jose, California. They were one of the original skate rock bands who incorporate two of the things they love doing most, skateboarding and punk rock. Exceptional musicians, they are also talented skateboarders. Steve Caballero, Gavin O’Brien, Adam Segal, Craig Bosch etc., are all accomplished skateboarders.
The Faction recorded 34 studio songs from 1982 to 1985. 28 of those were compiled and made it to the Faction Collection 1, the 6 tracks that never made it to that comp were included here. Plus a few demos, outtakes and a live recording. Even if you are a skate rock ala-Los Olvidados, Drunk Injuns, JFA, Big Boys etc, or a punk fanatic, this collection is a must have. Unless you already have every record or cd. The Faction are a great band and not to have it in your collection is a mortal sin. Now enjoy it punks while you can. Cheers!
