Metal Fanzines continued....

Found another box of old metal zines in my parents attic yesterday. This is some of the cool more obscure stuff in this image. I also have about 50 issues of Metal Forces and many issues of Kerrang, Metal Hammer,Aardschok etc. I am so psyched to see and read the mighty Kick Ass and Blackthorn again..Dave G.

Life Is Ugly So Why Not Kill Yourself compilation 1982

Cool early 80's compilation on New Underground Records. The A-Side rips with the likes of Red Cross. Descendents, Anti, Ill Will, Civil Dismay and China White, while the B-side gets a little strange with the likes of Mood of Defiance, Zurich 1916 and the Plebs while the Minutemen, Urinals and Saccharine Trust do what they do best...Dave G.

Also go to Cosmic Hearse to get the companion compilation Life Is Beautiful.

Okara - demo tape 1995 ish

Purchase Okara / Mothman split 7"

If you liked the Okara full length I posted then you should grab this demo. If you didn't like or could careless than move on to the next blog.It's punk, it's math rock, it's I don't give a shit just listen or don't...I honestly don't care. All I know is that I like it and I remember driving around listening to this tape with my friend Mike in the 90's and it was like pulling teeth trying to get him to burn me a copy of this thing.

Social Circkle - March Sessions 2008

Social Circkle is one of the new school punk bands that's playing a throwback style of punk rock that's reminiscent of the early 80's punk scene. This tape was limited to 100 copies and I think it was sold on tour only. As far as I know it's out of print so I figured I would share it with those of you who may care to hear it. I think this tape contains demo recordings of songs that appeared on their various 7 inches and also on their debut Lp, as well as a few songs that are unreleased elsewhere...Dave G.
