V/A Intensive Care Unit LP

Comp. album of Gunma HC bands. Best known is Dooms Day. This comp. was released on For The Deaf, a local label probably run by Dooms Day as the 1st release is a flexi of the band. The other release on For The Deaf is the 'Corruption' comp. LP.
All the bands played together on the Fight It Out gig series, sometimes with guests like Cheeky, So What or Innocents.
Won't say that these are the cream of the crop Japanese HC bands but it's an interesting document of the Gunma scene. Bands include Violent Mohawks, Grace, Gillmore, Dischord, Block Buster and Dooms Day. No extra points for original band names here. I do like Block Buster's title 'Money Makes The Stupid Cops' though.
I think this one was released in 1989/90.

There was a VHS tape called Burning District Gunma that had some of these bands on it, I think I still have it in a box somewhere.
