Release Info: Cool comp alert: The 80s Underground - Deepest Cuts Vol. 1
An incredibly gracious and thoughtful friend of mine who hosts an '80s power pop/indie/new wave (you get the idea) show on KSCU radio has assembled a twenty-one track compendium of obscuro tunes, featuring music purloined from Wilfully Obscure and a bevy of other likeminded blogs, not to mention his own personal stash. The 80s Underground - Deepest Cuts Vol. 1 includes music from such left-off-the-dial luminaries as Zeitgeist, Rhythm Corps, I-Rails, Cleaners From Venus, Girls From Tahiti, The Truth, and well over a dozen more. Per his website:
Years of careful research and development have finally yielded the first official 80s Underground show Deepest Cuts compilation album! What we have unearthed here is some of the finest top-shelf, yet criminally obscure music from the 1980s - bands that barely saw the light of day, let alone the cutout bin or $1 special racks at the local record store. Enjoy these fleeting moments of left-of-center brilliance and praise the digital technology that has immortalized these songs which were mostly cassette and/or vinyl only releases.
So sayeth a great sage once, treat yourself, don't cheat yourself. Download this puppy without further delay here.
