VA - No Idea Fanzine - Bread, the Edible Napkin (CD) No Idea #20 1997





Okay, one of the compilations I am posting concerning Floodgate; their track "the pessimist" is otherwise unreleased and has a strong Moss Icon feel to it, but it is sadly one of their weaker tracks. But that's venial: "Bread, the Edible Napkin" is a great compilation. It was part of the No Idea fanzine - I was too lazy to scan the issue but I included the booklet of the compilation - but also available as double LP. You might still get it from No Idea records, if not you'll get it cheap second hand. The tracklist reads like a who is who of the late 90ies: Braid, Brutal Truth, Hot Water Music, Floor, Serpico, Cavity, Threadbare, Still Life, Sideshow, Moonraker, Horace Pinker, Car Vs. Driver, Locust, Christie Front Drive and so on. More than a half of the songs are otherwise unreleased and a few are my favourites by these bands especially those by Moonraker and Hope Springs Eternal. Some bands should be featured here sooner or later (later! ha ha ha): Serpico, Rhythm Collision and Gus.

If anyone has any additional tracks by The Lisa Killers which is a Floor/Dove sideproject, please write me a short e-mail!

Okay, that's it for today, after Threadbare's version of "sunstroke" I am going to spend my evening with Swiz records.

Awesome, didn't knew Hope Springs Eternal had another release besides the demo, the split and the song on the In Words of One Syllable comp.

Ps. Why do you use .OGG?

I never heard the demo tape... sadly...

OGG: So all MP3mos can I ask why I do so :). Quite simple: patent-free, open source, better sound at same or less file size, less error, cracks etc.

I am willing to do everything lossless, but the hosts do not offer such file sizes at the moment.

Is the skankin' pickle track corrupted?

Thanks for posting this btw. Seems like a really good comp.

Shankin' Pickle track plays fine... archive corrupted?

pencrush said...

I'll try it again...

God damn it! Sendspace deleted the file. To the guy who runs this blog, could you do me a huge favor and reupload this, or at least just the Hope Springs Eternal track? That's the only thing I want on the whole comp and I can't fucking find it anywhere. You'll probably never see this but if you do, please reupload it. Thanks so much.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Dude. If you upload the book, you will be a personal hero of mine. I used to have the double LP. Have no idea what happened to it, but I am dying to see the zine once more without paying 50 bucks.
