V.A. - Bloodstains Across Northern Ireland Vol. 1

Happy (forthcoming) St. Patrick's Day!

If you thought all those volumes of D.I.Y sounded too well-landscaped, then let's turn over the punk rock roundabout 1979 and see what crawled around where the sun hardly shone. Often these Bloodstains Across ____________ (pick any country from the Western hemisphere) are dedicated to your more scabby, shouty punk rock but since Ireland took to the more pop/glam side of things, you're gonna a whole lot more hooks per rpm here then elsewhere in the series. So while some raw-as-shit punk can also be found herein, pop runs amok with The Moondogs, Midnite Cruisers, Protex, The Xdreamysts and Rudi.

    Thanks for the n

    Rudi were great and they even ended up on one of these Rodney on the Roq compilations - maybe the only non-American band to do so.

  6. Thanks for this ! I bought vol.2 a few years and was wondering if there ever was a vol 1 . Cheers!

  7. Rudi were the shittest poseurs going. Almost anything else on these comps piss on them.

    I heard V. 2 first and was a little disappointed that V.1 wasn't quite as good.

    Wow that's a lot of hate for Rudi. I can't say I have any idea why you feel that way but then I was not there at the time.

  9. I'm glad this rip was uploaded to Rapidshare. Looks good!
