Various: Maggot Minded cassette

Maggot Mind

$5.50

New pressing (I assume?) of this 2008 compilation featuring a number of bands from Olympia, Seattle, and surrounding areas, including HIV, Loose Change, Horrible, White Boss, Funerot, Sisters, and Sex/Vid. Like a good regional tape comp should be, everything is raw, straightforward, and to the point. Some of these bands went on to bigger things and some didn't (obviously Sex/Vid is the standout band here and indeed their tracks are the strongest), but I would hardly describe the quality is uneven, and everything kind of has that weird, slightly artsy vibe that Washington (particularly Olympia) bands always seem to have. Maybe a curiosity, but releases like this are really what hardcore and punk are all about.
