Great late 80s UR60 with a roster that was almost entirely new to me upon first listen. MUNCH start off with a mellow instrumental that sounds like 17 Seconds-era CURE, and LOVE OVER LAW follow up with a track that might have qualified for unknown anarcho status were it not for the layers of guitars and attempt at professional production...a great tune nonetheless. ANOTHER FINE MESS are a little more melodic and 4 PAST MIDNIGHT are more stripped down and basic, while JOEY FAT slip into some of the crevices that started killing off good punk bands in the late 80s (trying to go the more serious and/or metal route without the technical ability or recording budget to really pull it off). SICK SOCIETY are straightforward driving UK punk but somehow they remind me of SOCIAL DISTORTION at the same time, and an a cappella track from LOVE OVER LAW breaks up the first side before a total DBeat burner from 4 PAST MIDNIGHT and a predictably hippie sounding song from TOFU SURPRISE - complete with acoustic guitars and chirping birds. Metallic crust from DECADENCE WITHIN and a noise track from ETAT DES STOCKS round out Side A. On the flip, there are more songs from ANOTHER FINE MESS, SICK SOCIETY, JOEY FAT, LOVE OVER LAW, MUNCH (drum machine driven bizarre goth punk this time, awesome band), 4 PAST MIDNIGHT (the highlight of the tape) and another outro from ETAT DES STOCKS rounds out 30 minutes that also includes a self indulgent (but kinda awesome) track from DEATHRAGE and other oddness courtesy of a band called 2267. Fridays are for mix tapes at Terminal Escape, and this comp from F.I.S. is a perfect introduction to heaps of great bands - which is the whole purpose of the format. Enjoy your weekend.
