VARIOUS ARTISTS: A Product of Six Cents: EP

Nov 24, 2009

Wow. This is either a repress of a comp I first heard about more than a decade ago or a terminally late promotional copy. One would think that with a list of bands including Spazz, Lack Of Interest, Asshole Parade, and Suppression that this would be a keeper. Sadly, even the names of those heavyweights alone could not hold this record up. Too many songs are either poorly recorded or just terribly short to make anything on here memorable. That’s probably why this record never achieved the status of first and second wave power violence compilations such as the Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! trilogy or some of the Reality comps. However, Palatka’s cover of Go!’s “Belief in a System” was actually pretty cool.
