 Another discovery from the South America comp, this time from Ecuador. Originally released in 1988 on 12" and cassette, this was ripped from the 2006 bootleg 7" reissue. Is it just me or does the guy on the left kinda resemble Joey Shithead?

LOS INVASORES - El Ejecutivo EP (2006)

One of my favourite discoveries from that 80's South American cassette comp I posted back in September. These guys never released anything during their time except for 2 songs on the 1987 Uruguay compilation 'Rock 3'. This 7" features four songs from their 1986 demo.

Here's some more catchy local power pop for your ass! I tracked down this band's sole release after playing their song "Underwear Wolf" from the "Hollow Weiners" 7-inch on my radio show last month.

3. Summer Girls
4. Wrecked My Car

THE WARDELLS - Now LP (1988)

I recently found this record sealed at a stereo shop in Surrey. Power pop/college rock from Victoria made up of ex-members of Pink Steel and future members of The Sweaters. Produced by Bill Napier-Hemy of The Pointed Sticks.

KLIMAX - 84-86 LP (2004)

Lesser-known Finnish punk band who recorded two demos in the mid 80's but never officially released anything at the time. They did appear on a few comps, most notably 'Finnish Spunk/Hard Beat'. If you dig that classic Suomi punk sound, I'm sure you'll dig these guys too.

VA - Lest We Forget tape (1991)

Originally released by Cometbus fanzine in 1991, this collection of rare and unreleased recordings of Berkeley bands from the 80's features future members of Rancid, Green Day, Neurosis and more. It was reissued this year as a bonus tape with the soundtrack of the documentary, 'Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk'.
