MESSTHETICS #103: Midlands D.I.Y. (I)

MESSTHETICS #103 CD: 'D.I.Y.' and indie postpunk from the Midlands: 1978-1981 (part 1)

The Messthetics #100-series hits the heart of the metal-weary Midlands... where it encounters a sparse but energetic rabble of (mostly) teens. Faster, louder, and less arty than their “D.I.Y.” counterparts elsewhere in the U.K...
Rarities from Versatile Newts [pre-Felt], Swell Maps, Prefects [pre-Nightingales], the Accused, Digital Dinosaurs, Spizzoil, Cravats, Dangerous Girls, Profile, Hardware [pre-Pigbag], Famous Explorers, School Meals, The Shapes, the Buzz, Domestic Bliss, Cracked Actors, Lester and the Brew, Human Cabbages, 021, and Cult Figures.

24-page book / extensive liners / photos galore / 22 tracks plus four bonus MP3s (Dangerous Girls 'I Don't Wanna Eat with the Family' live, Prefects 'Agony Column' live, the Accused 'She'd Gone Punk', and 'Things to Do' by Lester and the Brew). $11.00
