WORLD CLASS PUNK compilation

Pokračujem odkazom na výbornú internacionálnu kompiláciu WORLD CLASS PUNK. Ja som si ju pred rokmi kúpil vo Viedni, na EKH tuším, v kazetovej bootleg verzii od Matula Tapes.
Kazetovú výberovku s mnohými kapelami z celého sveta pôvodne zostavil Mykel Board, dlhoročný kontribútor časáku MAXIMUM ROCKANDROLL. Podľa mňa solídny výber. Originálne vyšla v roku 1984, na labely ROIR. Československo zastupujú A 64 so skladbou "Já nemám šajn", (teda vlastne coverom "Banned from the pubs" od Peter and the test tube babies), na booklete omylom označenou ako "Moment".

---------------------------------------------

Great int. compilation from 1984 selected by Mykel Board. More you can read here:

This ROIR cassette was compiled excellently by Mykel Board. This comp has great bands that come from everywhere from Australia to Yugoslavia. There is some excellent stuff here and it's separated into a "Core" side and a "Fringe" side. This gives one of the best cross sections of truly international music I've seen. Purrkurr Pillnikk from Iceland totally blow me away. This is complete with notes and full addresses for all the bands. More, more!!

written by Mykel Board:

SHUT UP! I don't want to hear it!

"How could you have an international compilation cassette and not include the Mongolian band The Ocödöröglöös?"

or "Hey, those guys are nothing in Colombia, the best punk band here is...?"

or "You call yourself INTERNATIONAL and you have nothing from Pago Pago!!"

or "God, that band from Tibet sounds like it was recorded in a cereal box! How come they didn't use a 59 track JVC-TEACK-MX61 with UL 42 harmonizer and digital reverb?"

Did I do all this work to hear you whine? Listen, you hold in your hand the most comprehensive international punk compilation ever assembled. There were others: one from Germany has 16 countries and one from San Francisco has 17 countries. Both of these compilations are good. (Buy them AFTER you buy this one.) But none of them have as many bands from as many countries as this. Still, it is not complete. It couldn't be.

My travels have convinced me that there is no country in the world where there isn't some form of punk rock. All it takes to find it is to walk through the streets of any major city wearing a black leather jacket and a DK's button.

For this tape, I've picked bands that represent as many countries and as many punk styles as was practical. Some have bucks or backers to let them get into a real studio with a real recorder. Others are poorer than you'll ever be and have recorded on a piece of wax paper with a needle stuck between their teeth. That's the nature of PUNK and I'm glad it is.

There are no American bands on this tape because people already have heard the punk founders, THE RAMONES, and the U.S. hardcore heavies like the DK's and BLACK FLAG. This cassette will expose you to the rest of the world.

There are also no English bands here. England is where punk turned into fashion. It is where they invented Punk Superstars like THE CLASH. THE CLASH are as close to the idea of PUNK as David Bowie is to the idea of GARAGE ROCK. Besides, everybody knows what's in the U.S. and England. This tape shows it's EVERYWHERE!

Some of this music is the HARDCORE of punk. I put these cuts on the CORE side of this tape because to some people, this is the essence and most international aspect of this music. It is a standard that transcends nationality. Shave your head, play loud, fast and noisy, yell (especially if you yell about politics), and you instantly become part of an international community.

  1. Hola, been looking for this tape for aeons and aeons and aeons and aeons since I first read and was gripped by Mykel Board, the famous written doctor, in the mid 1980's. So three kisses on the cheek for you! best from Bolshi Brussels.
