FAKE IT BIG TIME - Vancouver Seeds VI tape (1991)

Fake It Big Time featured Vancouver punk rock veterans Randy Rampage and Brad Kent who previously played together in DOA, The 45s, The Sick Ones, Ground Zero and on Rampage's 1982 solo album. They won CFOX's 1991 'Demo-listen Derby' and were given the entire first side of this tape with six songs, while the runners up only got one or two songs each on side 2. And no, they're not included in this download (get your Rhymes With Orange fix elsewhere!). They even had a professionally shot video made for 'Bytor' that was shown on MuchMusic and MTV. Be sure to check out Randy's newly released memoirs, "I Survived DOA".

VA - Future Is Death tape (2016)

Here's a weird little cassette comp with a few different genres represented. Out of the 12 songs on here, 4 of them are instrumentals. I think only a limited number of these were made because I can't find any more copies for sale anywhere online.

VA - Babylon tape (2016)

Here's a great sampler of the current punk/HC scene in the Sunshine State. If you're not familiar with any of these bands, I dare you to listen to this mix and not want to check out more from at least a few bands off here.

EMENKAYA - S/T LP (2013)

Sole release by this mysterious Danish band. I say mysterious because this record came with no lyrics, band photos, or any info. Just this intriguing cover photo that I'd love to know the back story of. All I could find out about this group is that they included a member or two from Cola Freaks and only played a few shows and put out this amazing record before disbanding. I don't really know who to compare it to so you'll just have to listen for yourself and thank me later.

JACKSHIT - Hicktown EP (1984)

Goofball hardcore from Reno, Nevada. This band featured Steve Youth from 7 Seconds on bass (and Kevin Seconds on backup vox) so I'm not sure if this was some sort of fuck band or side project. Some of the lyrics are a tad un-PC which maybe why it's never been reissued, who knows?

GAUZE - City Rockers EP (2003)

Bootleg 7" of this legendary Japanese HC band's first recording. Originally released on the 1982 compilation LP "City Rockers". At first listen, you'd never guess that this was same band that released "Fuckheads" only two years later. I think the track listing on the back of this record is missing a title "Warae" based on another Gauze bootleg I have. But then again, I could be wrong.
1. Drug Addict
2. Oi
3. Usagi
4. Senjyo
5. Syodokueki
6. Impotent Kids
7. Warae
