MESSTHETICS #107 CD: London volume 3

MESSTHETICS #107 CD: 'D.I.Y.' and indie postpunk from London, 1978-81

Messthetics returns to London - mostly to a handful of Tube-stops along the Central and Northern Lines, including a special 7-band, 6-page feature on the legendary Dining Out label [Kentish Town stop on the Northern Line]. The usual quota of rough-edged new wave wonders, scrappy D.I.Y.-punk, ear-boggling home experiments, and accidental pop from fifth-form teens, art-school grads and committed hippies. Some things got recorded in actual studios, others on stand-alone cassette-decks placed just so on the squat- or church-hall floor. Bands feature ex-members of the Spitfire Boys, Tax Exiles and Flying Lizards; others went on to Weekend, Alien Sex Fiend, A Certain Ratio, 400 Blows, Alabama 3, Celestial, Afro Celt Sound System, Fraff, Late Night Poker, and ...and the Native Hipsters. Plus 5 bands that got their start at Raynes Park High School for Boys, Morden.

Messthetics #107 features obscure vinyl sides from Disco Zombies, Demon Preacher, Jelly Babies, Six Minute War, Stepping Talk, Occult Chemistry, The Patterns, 49 Americans, Avocados, Methodishca Tune, Jangletties, Stolen Power, Flags, The Steppes, The Insex, The Milkmen, Design for Living, Twilight Zoners, and Club Tango.
