If you're a frequenter of this blog and actually read what I write, then you may know that I'm not a huge fan of crust. Now listen, I don't hate everything crust, or people that like crust or anything (in fact I have a few good friends that listen to a great deal of it). No, I just don't exactly accept the fact that some of the "best" crust bands all sound alike. There are, however, a great deal of exceptions to this genre, as with others.
This compilation of Canadian crust and hardcore is one of those exceptions. I really wish that I had more stuff from this label (Tobacco Shit Records), but for some reason I've never actually looked anywhere for anything. I'm pretty sure that it's all done through mail, old-school like back in the day. I have no idea where to get the first volume, and on the insert it says that there was a planned third volume as well. No clue whatsoever. Let me know if you know something I don't.
This 7" compilation compiles 10 Canadian crust bands (and they all have the similar subject matter of crust; tobacco kills, apocalypse, pollution, etc.) but what catches my attention is that a lot of these bands (for me) capture the energy of a live band. They actually put a little more effort into some of the material, and if I wasn't lazy I'd post the insert too; some of the lyrics are insanely well thought out, which also has a major appeal to me.
