Sometimes I like hardcore to be ugly. OK, I guess I almost always like hardcore to be ugly unless I'm listening to OUTLAST or LIFES HALT. Midwestern ragers RASH fit the bill perfectly, I feel like this is what BLACK FLAG would sound like if they hadn't gotten pretentious and shitty (and they did, punk...admit it). Rough, nasty, frighteningly on point knuckle dragging punk rock. Yeah, it's good, and the two slow jams might even be better than the rippers. Stop whining, it's less than 15 minutes. Treat yourself to some serious fist through the wall jams.
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:
