GET some CAUSE FOR CONCERN
Right then, it’s time for some wierdness and obscure oddness from the alternative 80’s where fanzines and tapes were the order of the day. First up it’s a one track flexi disc by Southend on Seas THE GET, like The Fall on downers if Mark E Smith was singing about vampires. They released several tapes through the excellent New Crimes fanzine. Not content with that I bring you a 6 track 7” vinyl compilation: Stuff The Neighbours Play It Loud! from Cause For Concern tapes??, well this was the first vinyl release on the label, which was run by a wonderous charachter and all round top geezer Larry Peterson, a man who could sell snow to the Eskimos, sand to the Arabs and weird noises to the anarchos. Six bands PSY - a Hawkwind style freak out / NIGHTMARE - some seriously brooding anarcho goth punk, their only known recorded output, came from Welwyn Garden City, 2 bassists and a drummer who would latter find his 15 minutes with S*M*A*S*H / the final track on side one, or was it two is a short Throbbing Gristle type noise from UNKOMMUNITI / BAND OF HOLY JOY kick off the next side with Snow White. Next up it’s WE BE ECHO who were for runners of all this dance music malarky with their repetitive beats. It’s left to SOME OTHER YEAR to round things off with some dub reggae style meanderings. So there you have it then, and here’s were to get some cause for concern....CLICK! ....Enjoy or destroy.
