V/A - Bands That Could Be God

OK, here's a weird one for ya. I remember buying this back in the day. i gave it a listen, taped 'You're False' by Deep Wound and sold it. Well, my tastes have matured a little in the past 30 years, so it's not the horror show I once thought it was. There's some great stuff, some good stuff, some weird stuff, and yes some bad stuff as well. But it certainly deserves at least a couple listens before deleting.

V/A - It Came From The Pit

This Canadian comp is a solid collection of 16 songs from 14 bands. Well worth the download if you haven't heard of it yet.

V/A - 'The Big Apple Rotten To The Core' Compilations

I never saw these comps back in the day. Just as well, since I probably wouldn't have picked them up due to the fact that I hadn't heard of most of the bands. But, since blogs are a no risk way to try stuff out, I downloaded both and turns out, I'm glad I did. Both volumes are chock full of sleazy punk rock from the gutters of NYC. Go for it, dude!

V/A - Message From America: Hardcore Has Come Of Age

Another regional compilation today. This one from the northeastern U.S. 6 bands, 13 songs. Unfortunately it comes off as mostly mediocre. But a decent comp on the whole.

V/A - America's Dairyland

Here's a classic cassette release from the middle of America. A little muddy in spots, but a must have for sure.
