Dublin, 1991, FOAD, Cassette
The elusive volume two uploaded at last and what a gem it is. A whopper of a compilation featuring songs from the following, Arnheim, Dismal Abysmals, Ciunas, SMH, Stigmatamartyr, Coitus, Paranoid Visions, Brinskill Bomb Beat and 'Sleep With The Beaver'! I have to say the Stigmatamartyr tracks really stood out for me on this one, more of that please. Thanks again to Jay for sorting this one out for me.
Dublin, 1992, FOAD, Cassette
Finally get this gem up here. Arnheim had their own unusual dark, manic, paranoid punk style, mixing in elements of various 80s punk and post punk bands. Thanks to Jay for sending this on, great sound quality.
Co. Antrim, 1977, IT, 7 inch
Fairly rare early IT records release, great power pop/pop punk. Think this may have been their only release, featuring Paul Maxwell later of the Tearjerkers
Dublin, 2011, Headwrecker/Distroy, Cassette
I can't really be totally objective about this as I sing in this band, so here is Agitate Zines opinion..."this is an overwhelming assault of ear molesting raw noise punk...The Japanese influence of bands like GAI and Confuse is very much apparent. The reverbed vocals..reminding me of 'Perdition' era Disorder but at the same time having a very dark and at times atmospheric feel to them".
