THE DISHRAGS - Three LP (2014)

This LP compiles all the 1978-79 recordings of the Dishrags when they were still a trio, hence the title 'Three'. Anyone who knows this band has the heard the studio recordings before (tracks 1-2 from the Vancouver Complication sessions & 11-13, their debut 7" 'Past Is Past'). But what really makes this record worth owning is the recently unearthed live soundboard recordings from Oct '78 (tracks 3-9) and Jan '79 (14-20). The sound quality is amazing and it's cool hear some previously unreleased originals and covers as well a few that would later sound different in the studio like Tormented and Sold Out. This release also comes with a booklet containing a bunch of pics and liner notes. And as you can see, my copy was autographed! Another great release by Supreme Echo, who also put out the equally amazing 'All Your Ears Can Hear' comp I posted back in September.

FAKE IT BIG TIME - Vancouver Seeds VI tape (1991)

Fake It Big Time featured Vancouver punk rock veterans Randy Rampage and Brad Kent who previously played together in DOA, The 45s, The Sick Ones, Ground Zero and on Rampage's 1982 solo album. They won CFOX's 1991 'Demo-listen Derby' and were given the entire first side of this tape with six songs, while the runners up only got one or two songs each on side 2. And no, they're not included in this download (get your Rhymes With Orange fix elsewhere!). They even had a professionally shot video made for 'Bytor' that was shown on MuchMusic and MTV. Be sure to check out Randy's newly released memoirs, "I Survived DOA".
1. Bytor
2. Lorne Henry Blues
3. Evil Ways
4. Eye On You
5. Sonic Reducer
6. Ready To Rock

VA - Future Is Death tape (2016)

Here's a weird little cassette comp with a few different genres represented. Out of the 12 songs on here, 4 of them are instrumentals. I think only a limited number of these were made because I can't find any more copies for sale anywhere online.
