V/A Around The World In 90 Minutes MC
2nd comp. tape on Smurfpunx. Compiled by Mokka and showing very diverse and international stuff here. Actually, this tape opened my ears for a lot of lesser known international bands, in a time where people still where very UK-oriented.
There's also some bands here which music has to be smuggled across the iron curtain. Remember that this was made during full cold war. Only a few years before the wall should fall. It was very dangerous to smuggle Western music into the Eastblock and vice versa.
On side A we have Toxic Waste (Northern-Ireland), Armatrak (New-Zealand), Bikini (Hungary), 2 Minuta Mržjne (Yugoslavia), FOH (West-Germany), Anti-Dogmatikss (Spain), Funeral Oration (Netherlands), SH Draumur (Iceland), Siekiera (Poland), Nyx Negativ & Bedrövlerz (Sweden) and Lobotomia (Brazil).
Side B contains Ex-Humans (Greece), Butcher (France), The Zero Point (Denmark), Powerage (South-Africa), Saukerle (East-Germany), A.P.P.L.E. (USA), Cani (Italy), Kumikristus (Finland) and Sponky Business (Belgium).
