Fridays are for compilations and mix tapes, and today's installment is a solid hour of punk from England's SouthWest. Bands that I've featured before on The Escape like WAR TOYS, SELF ABUSE, and a brilliant dark track from ADMASS, along with loads of ragers from lesser known bands like DEAD ROSE, SCREAMING DISORDER (listen to the track, how appropriately named they are), HYSTERIA, CONTORTED VENGEANCE and loads more. A few of the tracks are live and a few are just simply rough, but even live, CULT MANIAX are fucking stellar. Never Surrender fanzine from Devon compiled this cassette in 1983, and I present it to you in honor of Kate's birthday (though I'm not sure how much Kate actually like blasting THE POSSESSED while writing her book, I wish her a happy birthday nonetheless).
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:
