Since I have been locked down and not going to shows, local bands have not been represented enough lately. Here is a bunch of locals to make up for it.
I have been looking for this tape for YEARS and finally scored a copy on discogs a few months back. I excitedly popped it into the Nak Dragon and it sounded AWFUL- like you were listening with a pillow over your head. I figured it was the Nak’s auto adjustments so I waited for my new backup deck to be refurbished and… it sounds pretty much the same. I guess that’s just how it sounds. This is probably the most comically lo-fi “officially released” recording I have. Well done! I wonder if Secret Center Records went to the bands and asked them to spend no more than $10 on production of each song. It does get a little better toward the end- the No Kill I and Knockoffs songs are not too bad, production wise.
