Vertigo - Amphetamine Reptile 7"s

Label: Amphetamine Reptile
Year: 1989, 1991, 1993

Here are all three 7"s that Amphetamine Reptile released from the band Vertigo; 
Bad Syd / Going To Pieces - 1989
Rub - 1991
Driver #43 - 1991
They had another 7" on Insipid Vinyl, but I don't have it, and therefore neither do you. They also had three really good full lengths as well, and someone should really get around to posting those. But for now, cherish these smaller slabs of garage rock cum hardcore cum cow punk cum thud rock, they are underrated treasures of a bygone era. If you hadn't heard Vertigo before and needed a band to compare them to, I'd start with Surgery and then go on to mention Tar, although I'm sure you could come up with something better. 
Anyway, these are good records that were overshadowed by the bigger names on this record label, and so a lot of folks (myself included) probably missed out on them the first time around.
