V/A We Can't Help It If We're From Florida 7" EP


Another one of my friend's collection. I know that this one has already been posted elsewhere but my friend told me that the rips he found are of atrocious quality. That's what you get from taking rips off soulseek.
The 'We Can't Help It If We're From Florida' comp. documents the Florida scene around 1983. It was released on Destroy Records, the label run by Roach Motel. Roach Motel did 2 classic 7"s.
Also Sector 4 did a 7" on Destroy Records in 1983.
Morbid Opera is an all-girl band I think. Also did a 7" on their own Sublapse label. This label also released the Gay Cowboys In Bondage 7".
Hated Youth is one of the better stuff here. Fast raging HC. Luckily Bob Suren of Sound Idea/Burrito Records (RIP) had contact with one of the ex-members and released a 7" and split LP of unreleased Hated Youth songs. All worth getting.
Not much known on Rat Cafeteria. No other recordings available.
Early Roach Motel has been put on CD.

Rat Cafeteria recorded several other songs when they made these two, but they are not nearly as good. The definitely picked their best ones for the comp.

Nice post! I was in the longest-running line-up of Rat Cafeteria. Still have the master for our unreleased full-length "Rat Cafeteria In Your Interior" on cassette. Amazingly (it was stored in my mom's air-conditioned loft, which helped) the tape has survived at abut 90% of it original quality and it has now been been digitalised. Three quarters of the songs were never heard outside of live performances.

Thanks for the comment Oddjob. Will the tape be reissued one day? Would like to hear it.

I had posted this on my blog a while ago in way superior sound quality.

Then my friend must have looked over it. It's hard to keep up with all the stuff posted from years ago till now.
