ZAKON ZEBRZACYCH: A.L.F.: LP

Tough listen. I can tell that this late ‘80s Polish punk band had some decent music, and the translated lyric sheet bears out a good message. But the recordings on this retrospective LP are nearly unlistenable. I’m all for documenting a scene or band of the past, but when even semi-decent recordings aren’t available, perhaps the internet is the best place for whatever does exist to be archived. That said, this is a nice package, with liner notes from the band. I suppose if you know the band and are already familiar with their songs, this could be of interest.
