Then everyone got into the act. Now close to 20 volumes later the series seems to have covered almost any place that had a punk scene back in the s. At this rate, I expect Bloodstains Across Botswana to be out before too long. Many of these claim to be editions of copies but I doubt that.
They have been quite widely available for a while now, unlike some of the records that actually were released in editions of or or even Some of the European volumes have also been released on CD with extra tracks. I don't have any of these so I can't provide details. If anyone wants to provide details I'll add the info. Return to the main compilations page. Return to the main index page. An excellent job of including some really good previously uncompiled tracks.
Perhaps the other Bodysnatchers track from the 7" would have made a better opening track? Rating: 8. A pretty decent compilation considering Belgium Born To Party - Municipal Waste - The Art Of Partying have a lot of punk bands and there was already a compilation from Belgium previous to this Bloody Belgium. Highlights include both tracks of the Mad Virgins 7", 2 of 3 tracks from the P.
Rating: 7. Has quite a lot of material that is available on other compilations. This is the third compilation of Belgian punk so I guess that is to be expected. Highlights include Chainsaw, Raxola, Stagebeast and Cell Volumes 1 and 2 have been combined on a CD, with some tracks removed from what was on the LPs. The third and final Belgian volume most likely.
Even after 4 Belgian compilations this one is still quite good. Wolfgang, Spermicide, Struggler, Cell are all really good. Also includes several novelty tracks Too Much, Elton Motello and the mystery track. Great compilation. A bunch of goodies including the mighty Child Molesters, Cheifs and Dogs. Barely a bad track to be found though I could do without the juvenile idiocy of the Insults. Rating: 9. This LP includes most of the good tracks from most of the good Danish records, along with some fairly generic filler.
Great LP. Pretty much all tracks are top notch punk rock with the weakest being the Aheads and Spitfire Boys. Not that those are bad, it's just the others are better. Another cheap shitty packaged job from whoever brought you Bloodstains Across The World. No notes about the bands, Jazzman - Carole King - Her Greatest Hits crappy photocopies of the sleeves or labels. Rating: 6. Includes all tracks from the 7"s, a concept I definitely like since I then get to decide if it is worth dropping the cash to actually buy the original 7".
Like Be A Zero - Various - Bloodstains Across New Jersey - Punk Rock Rarities 1977-83 Finnish punk the tracks here mostly all tend to be more on the pop-punk side of things. If you're looking for loud and screaming punk, you might want to look elsewhere. Some duplication with Volume 2 but there's still enough new material on here to make it worthwhile.
Really good LP. Once again lots of at the time it was released anyway previously uncompiled material. The third volume of the "original" Bloodstains series, and a bit weak when compared with the Texas and California volumes. More powerpop than punk. Had to pull some tracks from recent CDs to get enough to fill an LP but overall a Rame (Beloved) - Various - Neue Hits 96 International • Das Original • good effort.
Like Dont You Leave - Various - Dank U! 1 most of this is more powerpop than punk. Good average quality but nothing really stands out. The guy who did this one deliberately tried to concentrate on some of the more obscure records since other people were jumping on to the compilation bandwagon. He managed to Winter Rag.
- Giovanni Tommaso - Buster Keaton, Un Grande Comico a rather decent job of it too. The Spanish didn't really get into the punk thing until the early '80s, with a few exceptions.
At least they or these bands didn't anyway get into that crappy second generation punk that was coming out of England at the same time. The first of 3 so far compilations featuring Sweden, and the poorest one of the bunch so far.
Forced Exposure to several already compiled tracks, a mis-labeled track and some pseudo-psychedelic wank that really doesn't belong on a punk compilation.
Few tracks that are essential or that you can't find somewhere else. Fortunately there is Be A Zero - Various - Bloodstains Across New Jersey - Punk Rock Rarities 1977-83 Butter Utter track, one of the few saving graces of the record.
An excellent record. For the most part avoids duplication with previous compilations and includes mostly excellent tracks with little filler. Another great effort with no at the time of issue duplication with other compilations. Lots of tracks from lesser known bands, most all of which are really good.
The first ever Bloodstains LP, back in Worth owning just for the Bobby Soxx tracks alone. On top of that most everything else is great too, except for the Telefones, Nervebreakers and Inanimate Objects. Get it! If you want to know more about Texas punk go here. All the other tracks are quite worthwhile too, though maybe lacking in fidelity and production.
But we're more interested in punk attitude than flashy production anyway, aren't we? Some really good tracks and some rather lame ones mixed in.
Good selection of obscurities. Half quite good, half fairly average. I've heard that there is a second version of this LP with a slighty different track list? Lots of obscurities here to give Japanese collectors even more mediocre UK records to go apeshit over. Some of them are good Future Bodies, Be A Zero - Various - Bloodstains Across New Jersey - Punk Rock Rarities 1977-83What, Steroid Kiddieswhile others are treading dangerously close to lame powerless pop.
Most are average to slightly above average, as obscure and over-rated records go. Marginally better than 3. About half the songs are OK, the rest are passable filler. I've Be A Zero - Various - Bloodstains Across New Jersey - Punk Rock Rarities 1977-83 far listened to it once as I was doing something else and nothing really stood out and grabbed my attention.
I might get around to listening to it again in a few months. Nearly 2 years in the making from when it was first announced until it finally appeared. All of the songs are at least decent, none have appeared on a compilation before.
The packaging is very cheap, with a shitty half-sleeve and no info about the bands except year of release and their country of origin. My copy sounds noisy throughout the second side, maybe it's a pressing problem? Only made supposedly. Some really good tracks Glueams, Henchmen, Destroy, Star Clubsome total garbage Zoom and a bunch of otherwise mostly OK things that haven't been comped yet.
I had never heard of Arlo Stenmit before now, have you? A crappy copied insert with the sleeves shown on it but dick all other information about the bands. At least this one didn't take 2 years to get made.
Cool Evil Transcends - The Generals - Blood For Blood from an area that was until this LP not much known for punk bands why do most all of the good Yugoslavian punk bands' names start with the letter 'P'? Pekinska Patka, Paraf and a couple of the compilation tracks featured here are the best of a pretty good selection of tracks.
