Reviews:

Another diverse regional compilation - this one comes through with the goods. With two LPs worth of material from mostly obscure/forgotten midwestern bands, you're in for a crapshoot, but there's some goodies on here besides the obvious jams from Mecht Mensch and Zero Boys. Malignant Growth, No Labels, Frontline, and a bunch of others dish out the hardcore blasts. The Fetish mix surf, garage, and Casio-wave. Chicago's End Result, probably the worst band on here, win for best layout and best lyrics on "Slash," which is a truly demented song (although the Gynecologists' terrible "Infant Doe" comes close). Tar Babies are kind of a let down, but the Anti-Bodies weird Discharge meets Necros punk makes up for it.
