ELECTRO HIPPIES: Collected Works 1985-1987: CD

A collection of odds ‘n’ ends from this short-lived band that influenced many hyper-thrash and grindcore bands that followed. Included are sixty tracks culled from the Play Fast Or Don’t split with Generic, a Peel session, their first two demos, and assorted live and rehearsal recordings spanning the titular years. Sound quality varies based on the professionalism of the recordings, but all are at worst listenable. –Jimmy Alvarado (Boss Tuneage, bosstuneage.bigcartel.com)
