THE BOSS OF FINLAND


The art of the mix tape has perhaps gone the way of the playlist, and while it's true that assembling a nice playlist might take a fraction of the time and errors in judgement are quickly rectified, an organized list of files will never take the place of a well crafted cassette. I started putting this cassette together yesterday afternoon for a friend of mine in Europe, a friend who already owns all of the records. The result is a collection of primarily lesser known and under appreciated bands, my attempt to throw him a curve ball or two. I got distracted (focus is a key component of mix tape construction), but dove into the second side after I had a pretty good heat on last night. No problem sharing it here first, since this tape's intended recipient doesn't bother downloading music on the internet - since he already owns all of the records.

Stoked on this mixtape and the fast loud USHC mix. They've introduced/re-introduced me to a lot of "classic" stuff that gets lost in the whirl of the year-to-year punk sounds. Thanks for the digestibly organized must-knows!

Quite a curve ball for those who don't own all of the records. Excellent mix tape sir. Perfect actually. Thanks for sharing!

PS: Excellent choice of including White Trash Superman. "Couldn't (If I Tried)" Seriously one the catchiest songs ever recorded.

Oh yeah, stoked on the Diet of Worms, too. Just picked up their 7inch here in OKC a few days ago. SNATCHED.

Wow, Diet of Worms blow my fucking mind but when I try to find more by them online all I find is some lame indieband. Please post more D.O.W!

Diet Of Worms rule, and their sole vinyl release was shared early in Terminal Escape's life. Peruse the archives!
