X-NEGROES - "Mr. Neo Nazi" (1988)

"THIS SUDDEN REMOVAL OF MILLIONS FROM THE EARTH will bring about a mysterious world crisis; CONFUSION, has never known WILL ENGULF THE CHAOS, AND PANIC such as this world WHOLE EARTH! - We need a permanent bass player and vocalist!" (Exact words taken off of the cassette sleeve)

Hailing out of New York City, the X-Negroes were one of those bands I traded tapes with that made it all worthwhile! I can only hope these talented guys are all rich and famous today!
Featuring Malcolm Plummer on guitar and vocals
Maceo Cleaver on guitar
Eddie Scales on drums and vocals
Produced and Engineered by Abdullah Rufus

SWITCHBLADE NIXON - "Like It Like That" (1992)

 I'll admit that a lot of tapes I received in trade back in the day were by guys just wanking off in their bedroom or garage, but I would also trade tapes with actual bands, and that's the case tonight! Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you from San Francisco, California.......

 Switchblade Nixon,
  and a song off their 1992 Knucklehead release:

Greg Buncke - Vocals and Bass
Dave Froker - Vocals and Guitars
Harold Ohashi  - Drums and Background Vocals 
Ken Smith - Harmonica and Background Vocals

 Just an observation, but the way I see it, the internet has become so encompassing, that a lot of really good stuff goes totally unnoticed these days, just like another stranger in the crowd, and whereas in the past, music fans would be stomping all over themselves in an effort to get great music like this for free, now it almost completely overlooked, so if you're reading this, enjoy, but if you're not, then oh, well, I guess you'll never know what you missed! Too bad, so sad!!

UXORIA - "Dead Relatives" (1989)

Straight outta Tickfaw, Louisiana, here's Steven Boone and Uxoria with:

All instruments were played by Steven and recorded on a Fostex X-26 in his bedroom!
And that's just one of the reasons that home taping ruled in the late 1980's!
