Nine bands, 14 songs, and music from all over the punk spectrum. After an admittedly slow start (SCREWHEADS and ANAK NG KAPRE are charming, if rudimentarily inept and traditional ska from the brilliantly named TOILET SCANDAL follows), things really get rolling with the chaos thrash of DRASTIC NOISE and killer catchy street punk from DEAD SPERM. Then on the flip side the tape kicks into high gear: metallic motorpunk (BIOFEEDBACK), amateurish political street punk (BAD OMEN), gloriously incompetent Oi (PUTANG I NAS) and my two favorite songs on the tape: chaotic ragers from the female fronted MONGOLOIDS. These two tracks alone are well worth the whole tape, but a document like this is valuable on so many different levels....being punk in Philippines in 1993 was a world apart from the zine trading and workshops that were taking place in the US, and had little to do with the black clad anti-goverment crusters roaming Europe. Never Forget The Cause highlights bands on the first wave of DIY punk in Southeast Asia.
