V/A - Rational Inquirer (Various labels)

V/A - Rational Inquirer CD

Here is yet another comp for the ole blog. I picked this up at Crumedgeon Records in NJ when I was there to see Lanemeyer and Jettison. I am always looking for comps so I can be introduced to bands I've never heard before. It was 99 cents and you really can't beat that for 37 bands. There are 7 different labels who put this out. The best songs are from digger, parasites, discount and gutfiddle. And all the stuff from Grand Theft Audio just blows. I'd skip tracks 26-31 but you may like them.

PRESSING INFO: Put out by doctor strange records, hopeless records, shredder, liquid meat, rhetoric records, grand theft audio, and stiff pole records. No idea what year or how many pressed.

TRACK LISTING: since its 37 tracks, just read the track listing above.

V/A - Punk Rock Strike CD (Springman Records 2003)

OK here is a comp I think most of you will enjoy. Mostly pop punk! The label was started by a guy when he was 16 out of his parents garage. The label started to gain a lot of popularity. And for some reason it seems to have died off. When a lot of labels stopped releasing pop punk, about after 2001 or 2002, this label kept doing it. Now a lot of the bands on the label arent very good. Bring back the pop punk! They fucked up the track listing and inserted a piece of paper with the correct track listing. And I don't feel like typing all of the tracks since its pretty easy to read them, but I will type to corrected tracks.

PRESSING INFO: This is still in print. And you can probably get it off of interpunk. Released in 2003 on Springman records. Probably A LOT pressed.

TRACK LISTING: (the corrected tracks)
18. Faded Glory - We Won't be Denied
19. 30 Day Warranty - Song For You
20. Mud - Fallen
21. Shinobu - Shoot the Sky Down
22. The Epoxies - Need More Time
23. Glenn's Army - Fun to be Right

Heidnik - 3 Song Sampler CD (Too Damn Hype Records 2003)

Heidnik - 3 Song Sampler (Too Damn Hype Records 2003)

I saw this band at the sorely missed Why're in New Cumberland PA. It was a metal show and this band was the only good band on the show. I think I paid something around $2 or $3 for this. It only has 3 songs, but there is no shortage on blast beats and brutal metal. I did a front flip and landed on my back during their set. Which I used to do that all the time. I felt it in the morning.

PRESSING INFO: This was released on Too Damn Hype Records in 2003. They made a bunch of shows. And I think for mailorder. But as far as how many, Im guessing about 100-200.

1. Seven Dead and I Laughed
2. To Whom it may concern
3. Paper Doll Shape.
