VA - Uncovered Reality tape + zine (1987)

I've been trying to track down this local cassette compilation for years, so I was stoked when Ken Porter sent me not only the WAV file for me to edit, but also the accompanying 22 page zine. It's included as a PDF file in the download. Thanks again! Lots of rare and obscure Vancouver punk & hardcore not found anywhere else, enjoy!

VA - Very Scary Cemetery EP (1985)

I bought this 7" for cheap over the long weekend, so I figured I'd throw it on here since I just posted "Hollow Weiners". Same idea, a bunch of local rockabilly-type fuck bands doing Halloween themed songs. There's no insert or recording info, so I don't know about any of these bands at all. The only info I could find was a track listing on Discogs, which may or may not even be correct. According to that page, the first song is called 'My Dead Son', but to me it sounds more like 'My Dead Zoo'. So I'm going with that, fuck it.
1. DIG MA'S GRAVE - My Dead Zoo
2. HARD ON - Trick Or Treat
3. NANCY'S NIGHTMARE - Nancy's Nightmare

VA - Hollow Weiners EP (1984)

Here's a local Halloween compilation given to me by Dan Walters featuring some "fuck bands" and some... non-fuck bands, like the Enigmas. If you like those Bud Luxford comps, then I'm sure you'll dig this one too. Whoever put this 7" out released another the year after called, "Very Scary Cemetery". I know Halloween is still a ways away yet, but fuck it. I promise not to post anything Xmas-related until at least November. 

1. BAGS OF DIRT - Spidas
2. TARTAN HAGGIS - Lochness Monster
3. STAB 'EM IN THE ABDOMEN - The Dead Want To Live
4. THE SCISSORS - Underwear Wolf
5. ENIGMAS - Monsters In The Basement
