6 MORE YEARS OF SHEER BLOODY HELL
This comp was released as a benefit for Martin Foran who was wrongfully convicted for robbing a pub in 1984. I wonder how much money the sale of this raised for his legal defense, but I'm glad they put this stuff together for me to enjoy in (what was then) the future. There are some usual suspects on the TDK D90, like THE INSTIGATORS (reasonable quality live tracks), CULTURE SHOCK, SHRAPNEL, THE APOSTLES, A.O.A., and OI POLLOI, but the fun shit here is lesser known bands like GODORRHOEA, INCEST BROTHERS and LIFE CYCLE. 30 tracks from 13 bands in total, and consider yourself warned: the tape opens with some horrific live drum machine driven tunes from THE NEXT WORLD, but once you get past those, you can rock out to the freedom of Mr. Foran!
