(stock blank tape image from the Terminal Escape archives)
DILÖNIS had one track on the Latvian Underground '93 tape I posted last week. In case one track wasn't enough, the flip side of that tape features 30 tracks of the same weird, abrasive hardcore. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, then go find the aforementioned comp here and then listen to DILÖNIS. Active with various lineups from 1990-94, this sometimes dual bass outfit often managed to practice with no equipment (during slow periods at the hospital where they all worked) and still cranked out a slew of recordings worth noting (I have no clue what recording/s these tracks are taken from). Fast, loud and seriously weird, this is the shit the Cold War kept us from hearing. So yeah, fukk war.
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:
