ANTiSEEN - My God Can Beat Up Your God 7"

I love this 1991 single. Two great live tunes with plenty of attitude. Everybody's heard about the god damn bird!

Poison Idea - Religion & Politics Part 1 & 2

Poison Idea released this 6 song EP in 1993. Maybe not as angry, but still as powerful as ever.

V/A - They Decide... You Pay! - BCT #25

BCT rounded out their 27 releases in 1986 with four compilations spanning the globe. Unfortunately I only have one of those comps. #24 - Car Crash Music features mostly U.S. bands. #26 - Barabbas Records features Finnish bands and #27 - Experience The Freedom Of Total Control features bands from all over the world. But you're not going to hear any of those today. What you are going to hear is BCT #25 - They Decide... You Pay. 8 Italian monsters round out my collection.

You Pay!

V/A - Spanish HC - BCT #22

From #19 we unfortunately have to jump ahead again. BCT #20 features San Diego band The Injections. BCT #21 is a compilation of bands from Finland called 'Kaaos Zine Presents'. I haven't been able to locate either of those yet. I do however have BCT #22 for you today. It's called 'Spanish HC' and features 6 aggressive bands, all from Spain.

Indigesti - Sguardo Realtá - BCT #19

BCT #19 brings us the fantastic Italian outfit Indigesti. Great hardcore! And good recording quality too.

V/A - I Thrash, Therefore I Am - BCT #18

It is with great sadness that I must skip over BCT #17, which is Raw Power Live In The U.S.A. Haven't been lucky enough to locate that one yet. But here's #18. A blistering collection of European bands including heavyweights like Mob 47, Anti-Cimex, Enola Gay and of course, BCT favorites Raw Power. The version I have contains bonus Terveet Kädet tracks. I believe it was actually a CD re-issue. You MUST own this one!

V/A - Senza Tregua - BCT #16

BCT took a trip to Brazil for tapes #14 & #15. Unfortunately I have neither. But those two volumes were followed up with a trip back to Italy. Another powerhouse. A surprise favorite of mine was Juggernaut. Hadn't heard them before.

Senza Tregua

Stazione Suicida + Putrid Fever Split - BCT #13

It's back to Italy for BCT #13. This split tape is aptly titled 100% Italian HC. Stazione Suicida is really good, but damn I like Putrid Fever. A new favorite.

V/A - Hideous Freaks Search For Happiness - BCT #12

BCT #12 is a great collection of all U.S. bands. Another outstanding collection.

Hideous Freaks

V/A - Brain Of Stone - BCT #11

BCT #11 had so much punk rock that it couldn't be contained on a 60 minute tape. 90 minutes of hardcore madness, again mostly U.S. bands this time 'round. One of my favorite collections.

V/A - I'm Buck Naked - BCT #10

Back to the U.S. (mostly) for release #10. 10 bands from across the country plus Akutt Innleggelse from Norway. There is a Raw Power track thrown in for good measure, but unfortunately the copy I have doesn't include it. Demo quality on most, plus live tracks. A good all around collection.

Rattus - Finnish Hardcore - BCT #8

Leaving Italy for now, BCT took a trip to Finland for the next two cassette releases. BCT #8 is a great collection of demo and live tracks from Rattus. BCT #9 is a collection from Terveet Kädet. Unfortunately that is the 2nd hole in my BCT collection. So if anyone out there has tape #9 the Dr. Drunk family would appreciate the help.

V/A - Last White Christmas II - BCT #7

In 1984 BCT released two more Italian compilations, entitled Last White Christmas I & II. Unfortunately the first collection is the first tape in the series that I haven't been able to locate yet. So if anyone out there has BCT #6 - Last White Christmas 1 I would love to get a file of it. As for #2, more Italian insanity. Only 3 bands this time, CCM (of course!), I Refuse It! and Traumatic.

Raw Power - Self-Titled - BCT #5

I often forget just how much I like early Raw Power, until I listen again. Damn these guys shred! Here's early demos plus live stuff. A little rough around the edges but it absolutely shows the bands... well, raw power.

V/A - Ahhh... Italian Punk! - BCT #4

I'll give you 3 guesses where the bands on BCT #4 - Ahhh... Italian Punk! hail from. If you guessed Italy you're corretto! A great collection including the speed insanity of Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers and the slower punk of Chelsea Hotel.

V/A - Eat Me - BCT #3

This mostly American 3rd BCT release has lots of low quality (and mis-labeled) White Flag  as well as several other great bands. Another solid release.

V/A - Music On Fire - BCT #2

BCT's second installment takes us to Italy. Some great Italian hardcore is packed in here. A few tracks suffer from poor sound quality but all in all, if you want Italian hardcore, here it is!

V/A - First Strike - BCT #1

Here's a quick re-post to introduce the road we're traveling down the rest of this month. A couple months ago I posted this first release from Bad Compilation Tapes and explained my desire to locate any and all other BCT releases. Many good people read this and sent me links or files to a lot of the series. We still have some holes, which you'll undoubtedly notice along the way, but I think there's enough here to share. And on a side note, if Chris BCT is out there somewhere and doesn't like the idea of free sharing some 30 years later just let me know and I guess I'll have to (sadly) stop the posting. But until then, what's mine is yours.

Wretched Ones - Self-Titled

In honor of Labor Day here's a true band for the working man. I was sad to see them go, but their music remains.

V/A - 'Oi!' Compilations

It's the beginning of a new month and here in America we're in the middle of a long Labor Day Weekend. Labor Day is a celebration of the working class so, to celebrate, we're heading across the pond for a series of early 80's compilations celebrating the soundtrack of the working man: Oi!
Between 1980 and 1984 six volumes were compiled and released by lead Gonad Gary Bushell. If you don't know the story of Oi! I can't imagine you're even reading this. But if you want to read Mr. Bushell's take on the whole thing follow this link.
As I said earlier, six volumes were released. I present to you here only the first four volumes. Why? Because that's all I've got. (I smell a request!)
