A raging 1983 demo from yet another mystery band. Absolutely ripping UK hardcore, with a few rather typical tracks (the vocals on "Nothing Left" are textbook sing-song punk, and "Survive" is a superb, though by-the-books number), but a couple of these songs are total standouts (especially "Believe In Me," which is a complete scorcher but features a posi-core chorus that would make 7 SECONDS proud, not exactly what the UK was churning out in '83). BRAIN DAMAGE hailed from Scotland, graced us with this seven track ripper, and then two of these songs appeared on a 1986 BCT compilation...that's all folks.
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:
