Primitive and chaotic punk from PUBLIC DOMAIN, only marginally in tune (at best) and cohesive (that's generous) and often as much of a struggle to listen to as it sounds like it was to play. NEKHEI NAATZA on the flip lean towards melodic (even a few awkward ska punk bits) but pull out a few burners that serve as foreshadowing for the records they would release later (their discography can be found here). Fiercely political, at their best they come off like mid-'80s German punk ("Forever More,""Entire Genocide"), while at other times the intensity definitely trumps the proficiency. This tape was released in 1993, and both bands are from Israel.
