V/A City Of Thorns LP


2nd installment in the Sound Of USA Cities series on Mystic. This one compiles bands from Portland.
Ä lot of unknown bands here except for Wehrmacht, Rancid Vat and SLA.
There's actually an extra song of Wehrmacht on the album but I don't know which one. I ripped it together with the "E" track.
Rancid Vat has a live recording of an Alice Cooper song. The band name is spelled wrong on the sleeve as Rancid Bat.
Some stuff OK, other stuff mediocre. Compiled in 1985 but I guess it was released 2 years later.

1. Cardinal Sin - Devestation
2. Death Midgets - Death Midgets
3. Death Midgets - Amputee
4. Anathema - Public Affection
5. Anathema - Pigs
6. Anathema - When It's Too Late
7. N.R.A. - Pit Monger
8. N.R.A. - Vendetta
9. Wehrmacht - Beermacht
10. Wehrmacht - E
11. Oily Bloody Men - Skull Duggery
12. Oily Bloody Men - Secret Town
13. Carnage Shop - Creepin' Flesh
14. Carnage Shop - Rainbow
15. SLA - Insane Is Right
16. Rancid Vat - Under My Wheels
17. Skate Drunx - Whimps
18. Skate Drunx - Morticians Boner
19. Tradition Dictates - Hypocrisy

Thanks for that! Can't beat the west coast sound. Mystic had a lot of interesting releases which seem to have slipped into total obscurity.

Thanks for posting this - have the original vinyl still. Patchier than the classic Mystic comps but still well worth having.

Anybody have this vol. in the Sound of USA Cities series? - - v/a SOUND OF U.S.A. CITIES #1, Washington DC: THE SAVAGES ARE SET LOOSE comp LP, Mystic (?1986). On the lookout for it!

Have the vinyl also James and the The Savages are Loose LP.Wrote Doug Moody to see if he planned on re-releasing the Sound of U.S. Cities releases and he said unless there is a good amount of need for it he can't afford to re-release some of the more obscure titles on Mystic.Write to him or maybe we can start an online petition or something.Anyway thanks for posting this oddball gem.

Could you re-up this?
Also, on a unrelated topic; do you have any records by Habeas Corpus?

Thanks.
