Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

God's Chosen People


Nathan Nothin' here! I know it's been a while but springtime is upon us.

This is my busiest time of year, time to get the crops planted.

A farmer can't sit in front of a computer & expect the fields to till themselves.

Working with growing plants in the earth's rich soil makes a man think about a higher power, so here is...

God' s Chosen People
compilation, Old Glory Records NGR - 4, 1993.

Old Glory Records was responsible for a lot of great music by all your heroes: Assfactor 4, In/Humanity, Avail, Policy Of Three, Iconoclast or even Funeral Diner (ex-Portraits Of Past) later.

Old Glory has since gone under.

This is a really great comp. with all 12 tracks strong & rewarding. There is good variety in the styles but also contextual consistency to all the tracks that make the whole cohesive.

Side 1:
Avail - Sidewalk
Merel - Newfound Snide Remark

Elizabeth Herz - Easter Island

Askance - The Living

Puzzlehead - Degenerated

Native Nod - Back to Mimsy


Here we have some of the early 90s legends (Born Against, Merel, Native Nod, Avail & Rorschach) together with some bands who never got much attention (Groove, Shadowman or Greyhouse).

Side 2:
Rorschach - 21st Century Schizoid Man
Groove - Extension

Shadowman - Written Undefined

Iconoclast - Eleventh Hour

Greyhouse - Ever-Nearing Joy

Born Against - Lillian


Rorschach delivers a great version of the King Crimson classic. Native Nod (pre-Van Pelt, The Lapse, Ted Leo...) reveal their inherent potential. & Born Against whip up another of their classics. But my favorite track is Elizabeth Herz "Easter Island".

Listen & decide for yourself, but I'm sure you'll all...

Enjoy,

  4. Any chance of posting this again? I've had "Ever nearing Joy" running through my head all day and would really like to hear it again.
