Noise, noise, noise!! According to legend, these Dutch punks never practiced or wrote any songs, or even played their instruments before they started recording their bursts of magic. A full 90 minutes of complete nonsensical chaos, with tracks like "You Stink," "New Hitler Arrives," "Fat Jesus Laughing," and almost 30 others. Songs range in length from 25 second eruptions to a couple of painful 9+ minute messes. This is seriously trying, but incredible all the same, I believe that their earlier releases (this tape from 1985, is the sixth SECOND AUSCHWITZ outburst) are even more chaotic...so of course I would love to hear those if anyone has access. Put on your patience caps, and congratulations if you can endure the whole hour and a half...this one is is pretty amazing!
TERMINAL ESCAPE is a home for cassettes. Terminal Escape is here to share music that was released on, or copied onto, cassette. You are encouraged to acquire physical copies of the tapes you enjoy, as this blog is meant to support those artists and labels, not circumvent them. If you have a legitimate claim to any of the music I've shared and would like it removed, I'm happy to do so....but someone is probably already streaming it on YouTube anyway so you shouldn't be so uptight.
DEAD LINKS are common. Digital media are temporary. I will re-post tapes from Terminal Escape's infancy from time to time (primarily when requested), but I will not chase dead links.
Listen loudly, enjoy enthusiastically, comment frequently, and share liberally. I can be contacted here:
