Re: Perfect Comps

Forgot Welcome To 1984...a blinder. In the same vein, the 1st international comp I ever heard and sadly only a tape release; Raw War on Xcentric Noise from '83. It's full of dodgy demos, dreadful live recordings but it's just essential and the 1st place I heard Rattus, Neos, Terveet Kadet, Ohlo Seco etc

Good call Paul but you also forgot 'Living On The Edge'! wink

You Wanna Buy The WHOLE IN THE HEAD Single, Or CONSTANT STATE OF TERROR, But They're Not Pressed In Red, So You Buy FUCKED UP Instead.

Re: Perfect Comps

Actually Richpassivity made me an incredibly good emo tape comp. First time I'd heard June of 44, Native Nod, Indian Summer, Moss Icon.

Yep, me too, must have been '94ish Rich did a tape with Native Nod Bread and Assfactor 4 Smoked out. Another comp while not essential was the No idea cd comp that was $5 post paid anywhere in the world with a fanzine it was the first place I heard Assfactor 4 (Dear Grampa) and Friction (Re-Makeshift Chimney) both mind blowing.

I like Anti-Matter because it introduced me to a lot of hc bands from that era.
Got it for the Quicksand b-side, stayed for Threadbare, Snapcase, Lifetime, Farside etc

Re: Perfect Comps

Anthology of American Folk Music

My 'Tears of Metal' soft rock/AOR DJ set needs to be pressed on a record - absolutely outstanding, if I do say so myself.

I like music.

Re: Perfect Comps

Soul Jazz seem to be incapable of putting out a bad compilation

Trojan Calypso boxset is definitely perfection.

Ethiopiques compilations are consistently awesome. i think Vol 3 "Golden Years of Modern Ethiopian Music" is my favourite.

haven't gone wrong with a Nuggets or Pebbles comp yet.

Poptopia: Power Pop Classics of the 70s is non-stop goodness.

Pop Ambient and Total comps on Kompakt are consistently great

I rarely bother with vol 2 though - too much slightly annoying churchy and carnival music.

Re: Perfect Comps

I always passed over this one in the shop but I'm sure someone here got this Revelation label sampler
