Various Artists - A Classic Slice Of Teenage Angst

   I have just one post this month but its an instant classic in all sense of the word.  I've heard mention of Volume 2 of this compilation, which I have a copy of a copy of and would be willing to put up here if people are interested.  But I have never heard any mention of volume 1.  A Classic Slice Of Teenage Angst is an amazing compilation that gives a great idea of what DIY ethos and 150 pounds can accomplish. Made in the wake of the Earcom compilations, 110 copies of this cassette were distributed along with a 16 page zine with information about all the bands as well as whatever the author cared to add. Since this cassette is a copy of an original its got a bit of hiss, but it doesn't take away from the sheer brilliance of this compilation.

have fun,
