MESSTHETICS #108 CD: South Coast v.1

MESSTHETICS #108 CD: 'D.I.Y.' and indie postpunk from England's South Coast: Bournemouth-to-Brighton 1977-81

BRAND NEW MESSTHETICS!

Throughout the age of [post]Punk the English music press, the major labels, and the established indies ignored just about everything from the South Coast. Their neglect blurred lines between potential chart acts, Rough Trade prospects, and deliberate D.I.Y., and the scenes were remarkably self-contained. And, sadly, hardly anyone put out records on their own. Instead, the best documents of South Coast postpunk were a handful of excellent local compilations and a raft of barely-circulated tapes – which account for a majority of the tracks here… (Messthetics purists may note with alarm that almost every band on #108 had a proper drum-kit (sacrilege!) and also performed regularly in public!!)

Vinyl sides from The Chimes, Bloated Toads, Objeks, Greeting no. 4, Renaldo and The Loaf, Vitamins, Thought Police, Indifferent Dance Centre, Attic, Almost Cruelty, The Legendary Tenfoots, Pink Flamingos, and Mike Malignant and the Parasites.
