Live music venues have suffered tremendously over the past 13 months. Even institutions like 924 Gilman are no exception. Lavasocks Records is killing two birds with one stone with their reissue of of the 1988 Lookout! Records classic The Thing That Ate Floyd. The double LP will make an important record available again for the first time in years, and raise money for 924 Gilman.

The Thing That Ate Floyd is a snapshot of the late ’80s San Francisco Bay Area punk scene. While there are some familiar names like Neurosis, Steel Pole Bath Tub, MTX and Op Ivy, there are also plenty of other worthwhile lesser known bands. Check out the complete track listing below.

While no single label could take the place of Lookout!, Lavasocks is trying to do their own small part. They previously released Gilman Street’s Ripoff, a tribute to Green Day’s Dookie, and reissued Corrupted Morals’ Chet EP.
