V/A Life Is A Joke LP
First of a series of 3 international compilation albums released on German label Weird System.
9 bands from as many countries delivering 2 tracks each. Released in 1984. This is the best in the series with alot of diversity delivered.
From the U.S. comes Fang. If you like their early albums you'll dig the tracks here as well.
Savage Circle isn't the NY band but from Italy.
From Brazil we have Inocentes.
Hysteria comes from the UK and mixes punk with a slight goth touch. They did a 12" later that can be found here.
Civil Dissident from Australia is one of the best hardcore punk bands from the 80's ever. Did release a 7" back in the day but Prank released a full length of them as well a few years ago. It's not so hard to get.
From South Africa comes Riot Squad S.A. 1st song is from their 7". 2nd one recorded as Reaction Unit.
The German band here is Razzia.
From Finland we have Terveet Kädet. No introduction necessary.
From Spain we have Shit S.A. The 2 tracks here are the only ones I ever heard. Don't know if they recorded a demo or so.
