VA - Cleanse The Bacteria LP (1985)

Classic international HC comp put out by Pushead(who of course did the artwork and included his own band Septic Death). Some copies included a bonus 12" EP, unfortunately mine didn't...sorry!

VA - Iberian Pandemonium

Another awesome regional sampler from the same folks who brought us Mexican Pandemonium. The Spainish don't fuck around when it comes to quality punk rock these days and this tape proves they did'nt back in the 80's either. I definitely need to track down more of these comps.

VA - Mexican Pandemonium tape (2016)

If you're like me and know jack shit about early punk & HC from Mexico, here's a good place to start. Lots of hard to find jams culled from long out-of-print records and demos on this bootleg comp.

Hardcore from Germany. They also released a demo tape that's definitely worth checking out.

DIRECT ACTION - Trapped In A World LP (1985)

We all know Top Ten lists are lame and meaningless, BUT if you were to make a list of the best Canadian punk/HC records from the 80's this T-dot classic would have to be on there somewhere. With all the reissues coming out in the last few years (especially since the release of the TOHC book 'Tomorrow Is Too Late'), I'm a little surprised no one's re-released it. Unless it's in the works and just hasn't been announced yet. Although Schizophrenic Records did reissue the band's awesome 1984 demo tape onto vinyl a few months back.
