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'.

VA - Crumbling Concrete And Rusted Iron tape (2018)

For the most part this comp pretty much sounds like how you'd expect Soviet punk from the 80's to sound like. It's almost as if some of these bands saw pictures of punks in a magazine or newspaper and then tried to create music based on those photos what they think punk rock must sound like. If that makes any sense at all.
