Essential Hardcore ('81-'84): Recs for Ryus and others

Hi, me here. Here's another case of an obnoxious recs list instead of just commenting them on a list. This is something of a golden era for Hardcore and it is hugely underappreciated on this site tbh. Check the recs!! Most are short little 7"s so there's no excuse. List is in somewhat chronological order, and asterisks indicate my personal favorites. Def not supposed to be comprehensive, so throw some recs my way for anything that may be missing here :^)
