V/A Welcome To Ax/ction Island 7" EP


Got some requests for this one so here it is (yep, the Love Canal LP will follow soon).
"Welcome To Ax/ction Island' was released in 1986 on Ax/ction Records run by the people of Psycho.
Side A starts with Boston band and Psycho offshoot Cancerous Growth. Released one 7" EP, 2 LP's and one live 7", all on Ax/ction. Albums (with extra tracks) came out in Germany as well.
Stupids is the only non-US band here. One of the 1st UK bands with a USHC sound.
GG Allin needs no introduction. You love him or hate him. Weird choice.
Psycho started as a HC band but later changed to grindcore. There's a discography out with all the early (non-grind) stuff.
Spastic Rats did one 7" "Rodentia" posted here before.
PTL Klub is one of the most underrated Boston HC bands and one of my faves.
The Scam also released a 7" on Ax/ction, posted here before. Just got a comment from Eric that a discography CD is planned as well as a vinyl edition of the unreleased "Sic World" LP. Funny to see that this album was planned as ACT 12 on the label info sheet included with this release.

1. Cancerous Growth - Delusionary Tactics
2. Stupids - We Suck
3. GG Allin - I Wanna Suck Your Cunt
4. Psycho - Animal
5. Spastic Rats - Incite To violence
6. PTL Klub - Constitutional Monarchy
7. The Scam - Wasted Time

Thanks for this - never had it. Looking forward to giving it a listen. As for GG being a weird choice on this - you prob'ly know, but - for the initiated - GG got to be on friendly terms with Johnny X (from Psycho) & Charlie Infection (drummer of both Psycho & Cancerous Growth) - & their band Bulge backed GG on his "Freaks Faggots Drunks & Junkies" album...

Cool on the Love Canal.. can't wait!!

Psycho and PTL are both still together and play out in the boston area.
