TAPE REBEL 8 - Deadly Serious - "Night With Kim Gordon" (1989)

One thing I liked about the whole cassette scene was all the various artists compilation tapes. This was a real good one  from Germany called "Tape Rebel 8!" This was a release on Winfried Pickart's Weed Music label from 1989. The artists involved were D' Innsect, The Bozfor, Sacks & Violins, Nostalgie Eternelle, Due, Forrest 4, and The Crew, but my favourite song off of this tape was:

KEVYN DYMOND & MARK SHAFER - Play Something Else (1988)

You can see by the list of people involved in this tape how much time must have gone into some of these projects!  This was a masterful release by Kevyn Dymond & Mark Shafer and included this little ditty called "Alien Mother" on it! Kevyn on guitar, Richard Engel on bass, Dan Seeling on drums, and one of my favorite vocalists ever, Mike Patton, screaming his tonsils out! I got lucky and Kevyn allowed me to also use this cut on a compilation tape I made called "Refried Dreams!"
