V/A Not The Comfy Chair MC

Obscure comp. tape released by someone from Whyalla, South Australia. An international compilation although the focus is on Australian bands.
Alligator Parade from Victoria starts the tape. They were also featured on the 'Not So Lucky Country' comp.
Next are Germans Alptraum GMBH. They deliver 2 tracks of political thrash.
US thrashers Half Off follows with tracks from both demo tapes.
Government Thrashers deliver 3 tracks of noisy stuff, almost instrumental. They did a demo tape on this tape label as well. So probably the person who compiled this tape was a member of the band.
Bodies from Melbourne were already broke up. They appeared on the 'Eat Your Head' comp. and released 2 demos.
Last band is Public Execution from Brisbane. Wellknown in KBD circles for their 1982 7". These tracks probably taken from demos.
This tape was released on Music Not Money Tapes I guess 1986/87.

The S.L.A. - Evil Empire LP

Got some more goodies of a friend to share with you all.
Here's the album of Portland punks The S.L.A (or SLA). Don't know much of this band but you could already hear them on the 'City Of Thorns' comp. on Mystic.
First 11 tracks were produced by Greg Sage (Wipers). Last 2 tracks are live recordings and not really interesting.
'Evil Empire' was released in 1985 on their own Eat Me Records label.
Here's a review from MRR:
A really intense album, both musically and thematically. The SLA have growling vocals à la FARTZ, and a very raw instrumental attack; the songs range from careening thrashers to more complex but less hard-hitting cuts. The lyrics are unabashedly radical, whether dealing with wage slavery, national chauvinism, or media sensationalism, but the choice of the band name leaves something to be desired since there is some evidence suggesting that the real Symbionese Liberation Army were police provocateurs rather than genuine and very stupid militants.

Brave New World - Initiation MLP

This one is for the more adventurous among us. Not your typical punk/HC record here.
The singer reminds me of John Lydon from time to time as well as Jello Biafra. A lot of diversity on this record. They even use keyboards on 'Sitcom'.
'Initiation' was the band's 1st vinyl release in 1984. Seems there's a tape released before this one according to KFTH.
Brave New World released all their records on their own Homemade Records label but Fartblossom Enterprizes helped distributing.
After 'Initiation' came a 3 track 7" and the 'Noise From The Heart' LP on which they move further from their punk roots.
If you want, you can check the other 2 records of Brave New World on my other blog:
Brave New World 7"
Noise From The Heart LP

A scan of the booklet with lyrics is also included in the file.

1. Initiation
2. 3 Days After Liberation
3. The Worker
4. Like Van Gogh
5. Sitcom
6. I Care
