    Wondering who is on B5 in between Invisible Children and Zurich 1916. Doubled female vocals/noise/banging. Listened to the other two comps in the series, but nothing else sounded like it. Maybe an unlisted Zurich 1916 track??

    EDIT: Reached out to Danny Dean of New Underground and confirmed it is Rachel Mason (AKA Screaming Rachel Bitch or Hatha) from Mood Of Defiance.

      Vox Pop are members of Germs and 45 Grave - these comps originated from South Bay in So CA

        Good SoCal punk comp, The usual formula, punk and hardcore on side A and artsy and weird stuff on side B. Highlights for me include Bags, MIA, Minutemen and China White. Fun.

          The M.I.A.on this record is not the Orange County version (the link is incorrect) but rather the Ventura County version. This is the original M.I.A. formed in 1980. Sadly their own record was never released. Pj Galligan was in The Angry Samoans at the same time and other members went on to Stalag 13, Shit Howdy, Frankenstein, No FX.
