IDIOTS RULE - S/T EP (2007)

Hardcore from Germany. They also released a demo tape that's definitely worth checking out.

DIRECT ACTION - Trapped In A World LP (1985)

We all know Top Ten lists are lame and meaningless, BUT if you were to make a list of the best Canadian punk/HC records from the 80's this T-dot classic would have to be on there somewhere. With all the reissues coming out in the last few years (especially since the release of the TOHC book 'Tomorrow Is Too Late'), I'm a little surprised no one's re-released it. Unless it's in the works and just hasn't been announced yet. Although Schizophrenic Records did reissue the band's awesome 1984 demo tape onto vinyl a few months back.

VA - Chikos De La Calle Vol 1 tape (201?)

Not sure exactly when this cassette compilation was released, but based on who's on it I'm guessing around 2014 or 2015. Some of the same bands (and songs) from the East 7th Punx and Babylon comps can be found on here.

TEN FEET TALL - 6 Song Demo tape (1991)

Stoked to finally own a physical copy of the debut cassette by Maple Ridge's finest. Although I do prefer their sophomore effort 'Alive', this one ain't too shabby either.

POISON IDEA - Ian Mackaye tape (1988)

Since it's the 8th anniversary of my blog, I thought I'd share the most valuable cassette in my collection. It was in a box of tapes given to me years ago so it didn't cost me a cent but last time I checked it's going for over a $100US on Discogs (And NO, I'm not selling it!). So just enjoy the tunes as they're not available anywhere else in digital form at the moment.
