VA - Merry Christmas 1985 EP (1985)

I was going to wait closer to Xmas to post this but since the stores now put out their holiday shit well before Halloween, fuck it. This 7" flexi was essentially an audio Xmas card from Zulu Records featuring exclusive holiday themed songs from some of their artists. Ho Ho Ho!
1. ENIGMAS - Roadblocks Are All Over This Town
2. BRILLIANT ORANGE - Jingle Bells
3. GO FOUR 3 - Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
4. SLOW - Santa Claus Is Back In Town

D.F.L. - The Tape Show (1997)

Dead Fucking Last, remember these guys? They played lo-fi skate punk with lyrics that sounded they were made up on the spot. I first heard about them in the mid 90's when Ad Rock from the Beastie Boys was playing bass with them. I remember being bummed when they cancelled their show at the Town Pump back in 1996. This out of print cassette was a mixtape of songs from their third CD "Grateful...", as well as outtakes, fan covers, soundbites and other weird shit. I was originally going to post this as just two tracks, one for each side, but decided to splice it up track for track. There's no song listing with this tape so I had to guess for some of the song titles.
