I am typically not in the habit of reviewing compilations of any kind, but this cassette can be exception because it is that good to me. I listened to this after the other two cassettes I got from the same label, so obviously when The Staton Embassy and Periscope Breath came on during this I could pick them out right away.
From punk to rock n roll to the just plain weird, this offers up a diverse quadrant of music and if you haven’t heard any of these bands before (I really hadn’t) then this would be a great way to introduce yourself to them. They all sound spectacular on cassette and hearing this just makes me want to know more about them.
Again, while I generally don’t like reviewing compilations on the whole, this cassette was great the first time I heard it because of the element of surprise. It’s not just another hardcore compilation or punk compilation, etc.—it is a mixed bag and so you never really know what the next song will sound like your first time through.
